Nipple reduction costs

Depending on the scale of what is needed to reduce the nipples and type of anesthesia, the cost can vary from $1500 - 5000.  Patients often use the term nipple and areola together and some patients are looking for both an areolar reduction as well as a nipple reduction.  I would recommend visiting with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your concerns and develop an appropriate surgical plan.

Nipple Reduction Cost determinants

Nipple reduction prices vary greatly because the s a wide range of due to a number of variables including differing techniques that can be performed. My recommendation is to first find a few qualified surgeon  board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, that you trust, then compare prices between them. In our office it is approximately $1,500. Factors that influence the price include:

1. Location - Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay, an independent out- patient facility or a doctors office? (doctor's office is least expensive)

2. Type of Anesthesia - local, IV sedation or General Anesthesia? Will a board certified anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist be used, or an RN? (local anesthesia will save you money)
      3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best trained (and longest) would be a surgeon board  certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
      4. Length and Complexity of Surgery - how much will be removed, one or both sides, etc.

Nipple reduction

Bilateral nipple reduction under local anesthesia in my office facility would cost about $2000. A procedure ith sedation would be more expensive but this should not be necessary.

Nipple reduction surgery

In our office nipple reduction surgery costs,  done alone and under local anesthesia, ranges between $800 to $1200.

Nipple reduction is an  excellent procedure for the patient suffering from prominent  nipples. This procedure can reduce the height and width of the nipple, usually preserving sensation. It can be done under local anesthesia or in combination with other procedures (under general anesthesia).

I like to use the “sleeve” technique to reduce the height of the nipple. This procedure leaves the core of the nipple intact preserving nerves and lactiferous ducts.  The  suture line  generally heals  very nicely in this area. The width of the nipple can be reduced by removing a triangular segment from the tip area.

I hope this helps.
