Good Morning Sir,
I am interested in surgery. I have been working out my chest non-stop and I am an active runner. Yet my nipples won't change and have been the same since I was 12 years old. Didn't hurt my self-esteem that much but just more of an annoyance. Could you refer me to someone in the Las Vegas area? Also, how much does this procedure cost? Any info would be helpful. Thanks.
