Third nipple,is a rare condition that occurs in both men and women and affects about 2-6% of the general population. So if you have a third nipple, know that you are not alone.
How Accessory Third Nipple Develops
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. 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 meticulous technique to leave 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.

I am truly very happy with Dr Sheila Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
