Most women have slightly different-sized (asymmetrical) nipples. In cases where the difference in size is pronounced or the patient is seeking smaller nipples, correction can be achieved. Breast augmentation or breast lifts are sometimes performed in conjunction with a nipple enhancement. Nipples can also be altered to make them more symmetrical or smaller.

Typical Recovery Time

This really varies depending on whether a breast augmentation, reduction or uplift was performed with the nipple revision. You may need to wear tape and/or a special surgical bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts. Expect to feel tired and for your breasts to feel tender for at least the first 24 to 48 hours. You may be instructed to continue to wear one of the surgical support bras for several weeks at all times. Most women take one to two weeks off from work and normal activity; strenuous activity is not recommended for six weeks after the operation. Avoid lifting and pushing for two weeks–no heavy lifting or pushing for four weeks.
