Nipple reduction

In Toronto, it ranges from $2000-$3000 for both nipples. Factors that can contribute to determining cost include where you're located, the surgeon, the surgical facility and technique applied during surgery.

Nipple reduction for Men

Thank you for the question.

Nipple reduction for men is a good procedure to treat prominent nipples. I do this procedure by removing a segment of nipple and covering the area with a superior little flap. The degree of flattening (most men want the result to be  almost flush with the areola)  can be tailored to the patient's requests.

This procedure is usually done under local anesthesia and requires no time off from most types of work. Patient satisfaction was a high and scars  often not noticeable. Costs in our office range from $600 to $1000.

I hope this helps.
