Nipple Reduction

Do you have an extra nipple?

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.

Nipple Reduction takes one hour to complete. During the procedure, Dr. Rosenberg will make a circular incision on the edge of the areola and remove tissue from the perimeter. He will then suture the incision for proper healing and to minimize the risks of stretching. Our experts will discuss the details at your consultation.
