Inverted nipples affect 10-20% of women, although it’s not uncommon for men to be affected.
Some nipples can be slightly inverted and others can be severely inverted. If it makes you self-conscious, then Inverted Nipple Correction may be the answer.
Inverted nipples occur when the milk ducts leading to the nipple are too short or overly tight. This causes the nipple to be pulled into the areola, giving it that flat or depressed appearance.
Elongated nipples are more common than you think and effect a wide range of women with both smaller and larger breasts. Nipple reduction may give you the confidence you need to sport that bikini or even feel comfortable in certain tops.
A larger areola also known as “pancake nipples” can seriously affect a woman and/or mans confidence in their bodies. A very simple, minimally invasive procedure has helped many people boost their confidence and change their lives.
How is Inverted Nipple Correction performed?
Dr. Lockwood or Dr. Islur will make an incision at the base of the nipple and release the tissue by cutting through the shortened milk ducts. The scar is virtually invisible.
This procedure is done under local anesthesia and takes no more than an hour. Invert Nipple Correction surgery is performed at out state-of-the-art surgical facility located at The First Glance Clinic.
How is Nipple Reduction performed?
This procedure is a minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Lockwood or Dr. Islur will start by reducing the length of the actual nipple to make your breast as a whole more proportionate. This procedure is also performed under local anesthetic and will take no more than one hour.
How is Areola Reduction performed?
Dr. Lockwood or Dr. Islur will start by using a nipple marker to choose the correct areola size that best fits your breasts. After the correct areola size has been marked your Doctor will extract a circular area of skin. Some will be the areola and some will be breast skin. Your Doctor will then suture your breast skin to your areola tissue which will also give you a slight “skin tightening” effect. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic and will take no more than a hour.
What’s the recovery period after a Nipple Correction procedure?
As with most cosmetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient depending on the extent of the surgery, and the patient’s health.
After Inverted Nipple Correction, the nipple region may be sore for 4-7 days and bruising may last 1-2 weeks. You can return to normal activities almost immediately, avoiding anything strenuous for 2-4 weeks.
Are there any risks to Inverted Nipple Correction?
This is a very low risk procedure, although breast feeding after this procedure cannot be guaranteed. There is a risk of reoccurrence.
During your consultation, Dr. Lockwood or Dr. Islur and their expert medical team will clearly outline all of the necessary precautions you need to take, as well as any postoperative limitations you should follow. Any risks and benefits will be discussed in full detail. Dr. Lockwood, Dr. Islur and their staff take every necessary precaution to minimize any risk involved with all surgeries or cosmetic procedures.
