Is there any downtime after Nipple reduction treatment?
You will need a protective dressing for at least a week following surgery. This can be disguised with loose clothing. There may also be stitches to remove after 7-10 days.
Exercise including brisk walking should be avoided. However, you are not in significant pain and capable of working from home the next day.
Normal work depends on travelling issues and how physical it is. You may need to take one week off work following an areola or nipple reduction/correction surgery, perhaps longer if your job requires anything very physical.
Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and intense exercise should be avoided for around 6 weeks following your surgery.
You should be back to your regular routine and exercise after 4+ weeks of surgery.
Statistics show that one in ten women in the UK suffer from nipple-related conditions and abnormalities where the nipples are irregular or enlarged, protruding through clothing. This may lead to pain and irritation and is known as ‘Jogger’s Nipple’.
By combining the optimal choice of treatment with my skills and surgical vision, I am able to create the natural ‘invisible’ finish for my patients. I believe in exceptional one to one care and in taking the journey together from the start to finish.
A protruding nipple can be fixed by trimming the skin and bulk of the nipple to shrink its overall size. It is similar to other procedures that remove excess tissue from the body, but in this case, the procedure is on a much smaller scale and scars insignificant.
