Accessory Third Nipple Removal


We understand that confidence and comfort in your own skin are paramount. Our dedicated team, led by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. David Rosenberg, is pleased to offer a specialized service – Accessory Third Nipple Removal.

Having three or more nipples is also called supernumerary nipples. Patients with an extra nipple have a condition called polythelia or polymastia. The third nipple occurs within 4-5 weeks of development as an embryo. Extra nipples are smaller than regular nipples. We recommend having an initial consultation with Dr. Rosenberg to discuss surgical removal. If you’re a candidate for an accessory third nipple removal, you’ll be scheduled for surgery with Dr. Rosenberg in our Beverly Hills office.

The Procedure

The treatment is quick and an outpatient procedure consisting of minimal incisions and removal of excess breast, fat, and skin tissues. The procedure is performed using local anaesthesia and can be completed in an hour or less. Dr. Rosenberg uses advanced techniques to leave minimal scars. There’s minimal downtime, and we’ll provide you with the aftercare instructions. If swelling occurs, it subsides within a few weeks, and peak results appear within six months.

Accessory Third Nipple Removal FAQs

Can I grow a third nipple?

No. An accessory third nipple develops in the utero throughout the fourth week of pregnancy. If the tissue doesn’t recede, it can result in a third nipple.


Can I remove my third nipple?

A third nipple doesn’t indicate a severe issue or cause of medical conditions. Patients get third nipples removed for cosmetic reasons. If you decide to get third nipple removal, you’ll schedule a noninvasive outpatient procedure.


Is it hereditary?

It can be hereditary and is more common in men than women. It can also be caused because of congenital diseases, such as urologic malformations or urogenital malignancies.
