I have performed nipple reduction in male patients. Key is not to see it in a t shirt . It is a rewarding procedure for my patients.

Thank you for sharing your question. It is possible to perform a nipple reduction on a male to reduce projection and prominence. Be sure to contact a plastic surgeon for the best advice.

Thank you for your question. Nipple reduction surgery is something that is performed on Male patients. I would call a board-certified plastic surgeon and asked them if they have experience in performing this procedure. In addition, without examining you, it is impossible to determine what the proper procedure for you would be. You also have to be evaluated to make sure that you do not have gynecomastia.
