How much does a Nipple Reduction surgery cost?

The cost of Nipple Reduction surgery is highly personalised depending upon the requirements of the patient and the outcome of the medical assessment conducted by Mr Ammar Allouni.

What is Nipple Reduction surgery?

Nothing is more valuable than the feeling of ease and confidence in one’s own body. The appearance of the nipples is one of the major aesthetic concerns among both men and women; however, this issue is rarely discussed. The size or diameter of the areola, puffy areola, the position of the nipple on the breasts, and the protrusion of nipples are all common concerns governing self-image. Nipple and areola reductions are technically two separate procedures. These surgeries aim to improve the overall appearance of the breast by making the nipple and/or areola look smaller, reducing the length of the nipple or its protrusion from the breast.

What are the benefits of Nipple Reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery can help women who are dissatisfied with their size, weight or droopy breasts by making them smaller and more lifted.

About Nipple Reduction Surgery

Some individuals seek nipple reduction for exceptionally large nipples or hypertrophic nipples while others choose this procedure as they develop enlarged, dangling or downward-pointing nipples after childbirth and breastfeeding. 

Nipple hypertrophy, macrothelia, or swollen nipples, is a rare disorder with an unknown cause. The development of hypertrophic nipples leads to psychosocial distress in some, mainly due to over-projection of the nipples and irritation from clothing. Also, the ‘nipple prominence’ in these individuals can cause self-consciousness and discomfort. Nipple reduction surgery offers resolution to such problems.

Nipple hypertrophy can be surgically corrected through various methods. The goal of nipple hypertrophy correction is to render smaller, less distended and less apparent nipples. When only one nipple is swollen or hypertrophied, reduction of the larger nipple can aid in enhancing breast symmetry.

Nipple reduction also entails surgical alteration of irregular-shaped nipples—to make them seem rounder and more symmetrical. Nipple reduction surgery can be performed as a stand-alone procedure under local anaesthesia or in conjunction with other types of cosmetic breast surgery, such as – breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction surgery.

Nipple reductions require very small incisions and a short recovery duration. These can be accomplished under local anaesthesia through two approaches: 

Wedge technique: The wedge technique involves the excision of a part of the nipple.

Flap technique: The flap procedure necessitates an incision around the base of the nipple.

The approach employed during nipple reduction will be determined by your body and skin contours, the desired aesthetic outcome and Mr Ammar Allouni’s preference.

During your first appointment at our clinic, Mr Ammar Allouni will clarify all your questions regarding the procedure. He will recommend surgery only if it is the best option for you. You will also be encouraged to clarify any doubts regarding the recovery period, post-surgical care and the expected outcomes.

He will take your detailed medical history and conduct relevant clinical assessments, which might be followed by a 3D projection of the expected result – if surgery is indicated in your case. Additionally, he will inform you of the potential risks and complications of the surgery. 

Some of your medications might require adjustments prior to the surgery or additional drugs may be prescribed. You will be asked to discontinue drugs like aspirin and herbal medications (if any) for a few days before and after the procedure. 

Mr Ammar Allouni will also inform you about certain precautions to be taken before and after surgery. He will instruct you to quit smoking and to avoid consuming alcohol and recreational drugs for a few days before and after the surgery.

  • Pre-Surgical Care: After your full body assessment and before your surgery day you get the list of precautionary measures – what all you should avoid and what all you should do for the best results.


  • Day of Surgery: Mr Allouni follows the BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) guidelines for all cosmetic procedures. On the day of surgery, your health status will be reassessed thoroughly and a qualified nurse will prepare you for the procedure. Mr Ammar Allouni and his team will ensure your well-being and comfort throughout the procedure.


  • Post-Surgical Care: Mr Allouni and his team will be at your side while you are recovering. Once you are ready to go home you will be receiving a proper guideline of dos and don’ts that you need to follow and instructions on how often you need to be in touch with your surgeon to share your recovery status.


  • Follow up Stage – FREE: You will be provided with a schedule about your follow up appointments. All your follow-ups with your surgeon will be completely free.


  • Personalised Care: Once you have gone through your surgery, you can always directly contact with Mr Ammar Allouni and his team in case you face any issue or concern in future.

Nipple reduction surgeries have little or no downtime. However, frequently, nipple reduction accompanies another breast procedure like breast augmentation or reduction which demand a couple of days to settle. Your breasts may feel sore for a day or two. It is likely that you will be discharged on the same day. 

Although you can begin work within a week or so, it is advisable to take Mr Allouni’s consent before restarting physically demanding activities. It is important to comply with his instructions for the best outcomes. 

The scar that is formed after the surgery reduces spontaneously and gradually. The amount of scar tissue formed depends on the surgical approach adopted as well as your body condition and age.

The result of nipple reduction surgery is immediately visible and the recovery period is minimal. Yet, it may take a few weeks for the wound to heal completely and before the final results become evident. 

Like all minor surgeries, nipple reduction surgery is also associated with complications like haematoma, seroma, infection and problems related to anaesthesia and bleeding. Other late-onset complications like hypertrophic scar formation and uneven nipple or areola contours may occur in rare cases.

Mr Ammar Allouni has a high level of expertise and maintains exceptional standards in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. You may feel more at ease with the kind of knowledge and the surgery mettle that he possesses. If you are looking for an excellent care from initial consultation to final discharge, Mr Ammar Allouni is your go to surgeon.
