Nipple hypertrophy in male patients is a very rare condition but still requires surgical correction regardless of its rarity. It is important to consider two factors during surgical correction of nipple hypertrophy in male patient. First, the size of men's nipple is quite smaller than that of female's. Therefore, diameter as well as vertical height should be reduced simultaneously to achieve more satisfactory aesthetic result. Second, it is not required to preserve ductal function as long as nipple sensory is kept intact. Our new technique can reduce the diameter of the hypertrophic nipple as well as the vertical height efficiently and safely. No complication including nipple necrosis or sensory loss were found after 2 months of folllow-up.
