How Accessory Third Nipple Develops

The third nipple occurs around 4-5 weeks of development as an embryo. We don’t know what causes it but we do know that the baby’s breast tissue begins to develop from two lines along the mammary ridge (milk line) which goes from the groin to the breasts. Sometimes, a third nipple can develop along this line.

Surgical Removal of Accessory Third Nipple

It is required to have an initial in-person consultation with Dr. Sheila Nazarian to discuss surgical removal, which is usually done as an in-office procedure. Once it is determined you’re fit to undergo the procedure and you have decided to proceed, you will be scheduled for surgery with Dr. Nazarian right in her Beverly Hills office.

Outpatient Surgery

It is a relatively quick outpatient procedure that involves minimal incision and removal of excess breast, fat and skin tissues. The whole procedure is done under local anesthesia and can be completed in less than 1 hour. Dr. Nazarian uses a meticulous technique to leave a minimal scar. The recovery process is straightforward with minimal downtime. Any post-operative swelling should subside in two weeks, and the results should be evident in six months or less.

Asked Questions

Can you grow a third nipple?

Often mistaken for moles, Accessory Third Nipples develop in utero during the fourth week of pregnancy. At that time, the fetus’s milk lines regress and turn into nipples. Sometimes the tissue fails to completely recede, and the result is at least one extra nipple. 

Is Polythelia dangerous?

Polythelia, or having more than two nipples, particularly without areola or breast tissue, is generally harmless. The rare condition known as Scaramanga’s gene can lead to breast cancer in the extra nipple. Have a doctor check pain, lumps, or rashes around your extra nipple.

Do supernumerary nipples enlarge with puberty?

Like regular breasts, supernumerary nipples respond to the hormonal changes associated with puberty and childbirth. Supernumerary nipples tend to become tender and enlarge before menstruation and can produce milk after pregnancy. Cysts, abscesses, mastitis, and breast cancer are also possible in supernumerary nipples.
