Nipple Correction Surgery

AboutProcedureFAQ’sPrices
Surgicare cosmetic inverted nipples

A more balanced, natural appearance

Nipple Correction surgery is a highly popular procedure for women with “puffy” areola and/or inverted nipples.

“Puffy” areola (also known as Protuberant Areola) puts a cone-like cap on the breasts that some women find unattractive. SMG can perform a simple, routine procedure to flatten the areola and beautify the breasts.

Inverted nipples can cause a great deal of distress, leading to problems when breast feeding as well as self-consciousness about their appearance.

Most cases of inverted nipples are congenital — some people are just born that way. However, some nipples become inverted after breastfeeding when scar tissue builds in the milk ducts. Nipples that become inverted after birth are usually caused by one of three things: not enough skin at the base of the nipple, constricted milk ducts, or scarring of the milk ducts due to breastfeeding.

An inverted nipple may appear flat or as a hole or slit-like depression. Nipple correction surgery can restore the nipple to a naturally-projecting, beautiful appearance.

Before you decide to go ahead with nipple correction surgery, SMG will offer you a thorough one-to-one free medical consultation with a surgeon who specialises in nipple correction procedures. During the consultation, you will be asked about the results you would like to achieve from the nipple correction surgery, to help your surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.

Inverted Nipple Correction Procedure

Your surgeon will discuss with you the particular method that she or he recommends for achieving the best result in your case. Nipple correction surgery is a common procedure and is performed under a local anaesthetic. Patients often leave the clinic on the day of the procedure.

In other cases, a general anaesthetic is administered so that you will be asleep throughout the procedure. In this case, you should be prepared to spend one night in hospital.

The Recovery Period

Many patients are able to return to work and resume most of their normal activities, including some form of mild exercise, after three to five days.

Once your nipple correction surgery is complete, your surgeon or a member of our nursing staff will arrange regular examinations to monitor your progress.

Considerations

Fortunately, significant complications from nipple corrective surgery are infrequent. Every year, many people undergo successful nipple surgery and experience no major problems and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.

The information on this web site is only an introduction to the procedure and should not be used to determine whether you will have the procedure performed nor as a guarantee of the result.

The best method of determining your personal options is to schedule a free consultation. Our specialists will be able to answer specific questions related to your situation.
