The ASPS website is a good starting point to find qualified, board certified plastic surgeons. Excision of accessory nipples is a straightforward and relatively simple procedure with minimal anesthesia (most likely local) and nominal recovery time. Consult with 2 - 3 surgeons from the ASPS list to be able choose the one that best fits your needs.

Thank you for the question.

There are many well-trained/experienced board-certified plastic surgeons in your area. I would suggest checking with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons  to identify appropriate surgeons in your area.

Excision of accessory nipples is a relatively simple procedure that can often be done under local anesthesia with small incisions and minimal recovery time.

I hope this helps.
