Procedure – Durring this procedure a small incisions are made around the areola (nipple) and at a few other sites on the chest. A cannula (which is a small metal tube) is inserted in the areas of incision and used to remove the fat out from the area by sucking it out. Sometimes some glandular tissue will be removed around the boarder of the nipple. The patients nipple is then sewn up with a self dissolving suture material and properly contoured and tightened. In extreme conditions the excess skin may have to be removed. Recovery is normally between two to three weeks, however 1-2 days after surgery you should be on your feet.
