Corrective Nipple Surgery To RESTORE Confidence

The nipple is the focal point of the breast, and aside from its functional role in breastfeeding, it is also important to female beauty and the feeling of sexuality. Inverted nipples can be uncomfortable and a source of self-consciousness. This is why many women are opting to have this condition corrected through inverted nipple surgery.

A Closer Look At The Inverted Nipple Surgery Process

This outpatient procedure is performed with minimal discomfort and downtime, typically within the comfort of our private office. By opting for local anesthesia, we reduce the inconveniences and potential complications associated with general anesthesia, while also lowering your procedure costs.

Dr. Donaldson and Dr. Sieffert repair inverted nipples by making a discreet and minute incision. They release the troublesome ducts beneath the nipple, which allows the nipple to project away from the breast in a more natural position. Once the correct contour is established, tiny stitches, or bolsters, are used to prevent recurrence. The incisions are carefully closed with sutures and the patient will be provided with post-operative instructions, including guidelines for care and recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nipples are sometimes inverted from an early age, while other women develop them after breastfeeding or trauma. Regardless, the condition is caused by the tethering of the nipple to the underlying breast tissue. The ducts that connect the skin over the nipple to the deeper breast can become shortened or scarred, and they pull the nipple in toward the chest.

Beyond the rare risks associated with less intensive surgeries, inverted nipple surgery may interfere with future breastfeeding, and it can decrease sensation as well. The solution is usually permanent, and most patients are thrilled with their results.

Candidates for inverted nipple surgery are individuals who are bothered by the appearance of their inverted or retracted nipples and want a more aesthetically pleasing breast contour. Ideal surgical candidates should be in overall good health, have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure and understand the potential risks and benefits involved.

Following inverted nipple surgery and a full recovery, patients can expect to see improved nipple projection and a more natural appearance. The final results may take several weeks to fully manifest as the breasts heal and the natural swelling subsides.

While the procedure aims to permanently correct the nipple inversion, it’s important to note that future factors such as breastfeeding, pregnancy, or certain medical conditions may potentially affect the long-term results.

Yes, our surgeons perform inverted nipple surgery under local anesthesia.

Some patients feel more comfortable undergoing this procedure while under general anesthesia at one of our local surgical centers. We offer this as a solution, as well, based on your preference.
