In this video in our nipple reduction FAQ series we cover the topic of pain, and how painful the procedure is.
It is quite a simple procedure, which doesn’t take long to perform, or any general anaesthetic. The surgery is almost always performed under a local anaesthetic. You can request a general, but this may bump up the price as you may need an overnight hospital stay. The local anaesthetic is administered through the thinnest needles possible to avoid as much pain as we can. The anaesthetic will numb the whole area, which will negate the pain throughout the rest of the procedure.
