The best cosmetic surgeons, like those at Rowe Plastic Surgery in New York City and in New Jersey, view your goals from a wholistic viewpoint.

What Is Nipple Enlargement?

Nipple enlargement or augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance your nipple size and/or projection. You or your plastic surgeon may consider nipple augmentation as part of a breast enhancement procedure, such as a breast lift, breast augmentation or breast reduction. If you love the size of your breasts but are uncomfortable about the size of your nipples, nipple enlargement may be the answer.

The treatment for nipple enlargement involves the use of injectable fillers. The procedure improves nipple protrusion, while giving you more erect nipples that beautifully crown your breasts. During the procedure, you may also seek to enlarge or reduce your areolas  to better match the size and shape of your breasts. Areola enlargement gives more prominence to your breasts.

To attain your desired nipple look and size, find a board certified plastic surgeon who’s familiar with the procedure. The plastic surgery team at Rowe Plastic Surgery in New Jersey, Manhattan, Long Island and the Hamptons include qualified cosmetic surgeons who have helped women and men with their chest issues. They develop individualized treatment plans and make use of up-to-date tools and techniques to deliver the best outcomes.

Who Needs Nipple Enlargement?

If you look in the mirror and wish you had more pronounced nipples, plastic surgery nipple enlargement can help you get those large pointed nipples you desire. A top NYC and NJ cosmetic surgeon evaluates your breast size and overall health to determine if you’re a candidate for the procedure. Some factors that make you a good candidate for nipple enhancement surgery include:

  • You have inverted nipples.
  • You want a mommy makeover after a pregnancy.
  • You want to increase the size of your nipples as part of a breast augmentation.
  • You have good overall health.
  • You have realistic expectations about nipple enlargement surgery.
  • You’re not pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed soon.
  • You want to enlarge or reduce your areolas as part of your nipple enhancement

If you don’t feel comfortable with your nipple size, your cosmetic surgeon can determine if nipple enhancement surgery is a solution for you. When you talk to a plastic surgeon at a New York City or New Jersey breast surgery practice, discuss the procedure, expectations and recovery. The surgeon provides all the information you need to make an informed decision.

What’s Involved in Nipple Enlargement Surgery?

Nipple enlargement surgery is an outpatient procedure done at your plastic surgeon’s office. The procedure takes less than 15 minutes, and it usually follows several steps, including:

  • Consultation. When you meet your plastic surgeon for your initial consultation, explain why you’re dissatisfied with your nipples. A top doctor listens attentively and then carries out a breast examination and reviews your medical history. Your consultation helps the doctor qualify you as a candidate for nipple enlargement surgery.
  • Preparation. Before the surgery, your doctor advises you on the medications you need to stop taking, including blood thinners and anti-inflammatory drugs. Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to the surgery and if a rash develops on your breasts, alert your doctor for immediate assessment.
  • Arrival at the office. Wear comfortable clothing for the procedure. An anesthesiologist or staff member administers local anesthesia to relieve any discomfort during your procedure.
  • Nipple enlargement. Your plastic surgeon injects the base of your nipple and the nipple itself with a dermal filler. The filler corrects the inversion, if present, and increases the nipple’s projection.

The best cosmetic surgeon in NJ and NYC has performed many nipple surgeries. You’re put at ease by learning what to expect during your procedure. It’s an outpatient procedure, meaning you return home to recover.

What Should I Expect After My Nipple Enlargement?

After your nipple enhancement procedure, you can expect:

  • Temporary pain and soreness around your treated nipples
  • Immediate results are visible after injection of the filler
  • Advice to avoid strenuous activities
  • Being able to resume work immediately
  • Smoother nipple texture
  • A full recovery quickly, although if you’ve had another breast enhancement procedure, recovery may take longer
  • A boost in self-esteem and a better self-image

If you have concerns about the size of your nipples, nipple enlargement can have a huge impact on the quality of your life. Larger nipples accentuate the appearance of your breasts. Whether you want the procedure alone or with breast enhancement, the plastic surgeons at Rowe Plastic Surgery have the expertise to help you reach your goals.

I’m almost 4 months post op on a breast reduction and couldn’t be happier with the results!! Decided to finally take the plunge after waiting for years and the team at Rowe was so assuring and helpful. Dr. Schneider performed my surgery and made me feel calm and relaxed. Would recommend if you are looking to get a breast reduction. Simone and Lisa are also so amazing!!!
