Although not very common, projected nipples are a concern for some of my Orange County plastic surgery patients.
This is especially a concern for male patients. One of my patients was very concerned about his nipples showing through all his shirts and had to wear very thick fabric clothing, even in the summer. Needless to say, this caused him a lot of grief, especially in social situations.
For women, the projection is also a problem, as the nipple is noticeable through most clothing. The nipple also hangs down due to its size, taking away from the visual attractiveness of the breast.
Fortunately, there is a solution. The nipple projection can be corrected with a simple procedure which can be done in the office under local anesthesia. In majority of patients, the nipple sensation remains unchanged.
I have enclosed before and after photos to demonstrate the effectiveness of this procedure.
