Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson, informs women of the options available for inverted nipple surgery. Columbus, Ohio, plastic surgeon, Dr. Donaldson explains that women with inverted nipples often do not know that a corrective, minimally-invasive surgery is available for this condition.
Columbus, OH, December 07, 2010 (PR.com) — Many women have inverted nipples for a variety of reasons. Whether due to congenital events that start with fetal development or because of trauma or breastfeeding, inverted nipples can be uncomfortable and disfiguring. For patients interested in nipple surgery, Columbus, Ohio, plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson, has a practiced technique that is quick, effective and virtually painless.
“While it isn’t as common as some other breast surgeries, nipple repair is becoming much more popular,” Dr. Donaldson reports.
Donaldson continues, “Women born with inverted nipples often do not realize that there are cosmetic options to improve their appearance and self-esteem. Women who experience changes or damage due to breastfeeding, such as puckering, dimpling or flattening, are thrilled to be able to recover their natural breast shape and contour.”
It is important to keep in mind that inverted nipple repair surgery can interfere with future breastfeeding and there is a small risk of nerve damage resulting in altered sensation. However, these side effects are rare in nipple surgery. Columbus, Ohio patients of Dr. Donaldson are assured that the outpatient procedure is straightforward with minimal discomfort and recovery.
“There is only one needle tip-sized incision per side,” Dr. Donaldson says. “This allows me to free the tethered ducts that are causing the nipple to invert and retract into the chest. I release the nipple to its natural and extended position before placing one supportive stitch per side. It’s really a simple process with dramatic results.”
