Inverted nipple correction or nipple repair, is a surgical procedure used to make a turned-in nipple protrude in the normal way. Our cosmetic surgery clinic performs inverted nipple repair surgery which have a great number of benefits for you.
Inverted nipples can cause functional problems for women and emotional concerns. An inverted nipple can look flat or a slit like depression or hole at the normal nipple location.
Correction of inverted nipples depends on the problem. Typical inverted nipple surgery can be done under local anaesthesia as an outpatient.
Some women naturally have large areolas and others may develop them due to age, genetic predisposition, stretching of tissue by heavy breasts, or pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Areola Reduction surgery is designed to remove the redundant areola tissue and improve the overall cosmetic appearance. The procedure involves either an incision around the outside of the areola and a smaller incision with removal of the excess tissue in between like a donut, or by an incision around the base of the nipple.
Recovery time will depend on the patient, but most patients can return to work and resume their normal activity within a day or two.
Disclaimer: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
