Nipple hypertrophy is not a common condition in male but it can cause psychological and social disturbances to young male patients and hinder them from participating in various recreational activities. The main goal of nipple reduction is cosmesis in male, but functional goals are more important in females. Several methods1-5 of reduction have been described. However very few 6-8 adress the problem of male nipple hypertrophy. In our report, we have described the technique for nipple hypertrophy in male using sinusoidal wave form excision and purse-string suture method. We have used this technique for a male nipple hypertrophy patient and had good aesthetic result without any postoperative complications.
