Types of Nipple Surgery

There are lots of different types of surgical procedures that we perform on nipples. We specialise in inverted nipple correction surgery, nipple reduction surgery, and flat nipple correction procedures. Nipple imperfections affect millions of women. Our surgical interventions are suitable for anyone who wants to correct their imperfections and gain self-confidence. 

Nipple Reduction Surgery

Lots of people experience protruding nipples. They are a result of congenital imperfections or breastfeeding. Enlarged or puffy nipples can cause discomfort against form-fitting clothing and lifelong embarrassment. Most of our patients report feeling self-conscious about wearing form-fitting clothing. 

Nipple reduction surgery is a fast, simple, and efficient procedure. Women from all over the world seek nipple reductions so that they can live their lives to the fullest. Our surgeons can solve your embarrassment and discomfort in an hour. 

Your surgeon will create an incision around the base of your nipple. They will then cut away excess tissue and pull the rest of the nipple upwards. They use stitches to secure your nipple in the correct position and apply dressings to protect the stitches.

Areola Reduction Surgery

Some people have larger areolas than normal. Large areolas can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness. They can become a problem in the summer months for men. Our female patients report feeling embarrassed about their large areolas during intimate moments or even whilst wearing semi-transparent clothing. 

Areola reduction surgery reduces the overall diameter of the areolas. It is a simple procedure that does not take more than an hour. Our surgeons will remove a circular area of flesh from the areolas. They will then stitch the remaining areola to your skin. They will also cover your stitches in special dressings.

Inverted Nipple Surgery

Around 10% of women have flat or inverted nipples. Both types of nipple imperfections present psychological and aesthetic problems. They can cause shame and embarrassment. 

As the name suggests, inverted nipples occur when the nipple does not protrude from the areolas. Flat nipples do not protrude either. Unlike inverted nipples, they are not held within the breast cavity. 

In most cases, inverted nipples are a naturally occurring imperfection. Inversions also occur as a result of these factors.

  • Weight loss
  • Infections such as mastitis
  • Breast surgery
  • Breast cancer
  • Fat necrosis 

Surgery is one of the most effective solutions for these imperfections. Nipple correction procedures are performed under local anaesthesia. More often than not, our surgeons can preserve the milk ducts. The surgery itself is relatively simple. It involves creating a small incision underneath each nipple. The procedure should take no more than an hour for both nipples.

Suitable Candidates For Nipple Surgery

In most cases, nipple imperfections are congenital. Many of our patients are born with flat, inverted, or protruding nipples. Some patients experience nipple imperfections as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, or surgery. Whether you are experiencing nipple retraction after breast reduction or flat nipples after breast reduction, we can help. 

Some of our patients live with the shame and paranoia associated with imperfections for a lifetime before they seek help. Anyone who experiences one or more of the above-mentioned conditions is a suitable candidate for surgery. 

 

Can Inverted Nipples Correct Themselves?

It is important to note that inverted and flat nipples do not correct themselves over time.

If you have inverted or flat nipples, there is a small chance that you might be able to correct your imperfections with non-surgical inverted nipple correction procedures. The Nipplette suction device can correct inverted nipples.

The chance of the Niplette device working depends on the grade of inversion. There are 3 grades of inversion, with number 1 being the easiest to treat with non-surgical methods. If you have grade 2 or grade 3 inverted nipples, the Niplette device can traumatise your areolas and create puffiness without fixing the problem.

What to Expect After Nipple Surgery?

Nipple reduction surgery, flat nipple correction surgery, and inverted nipple surgery are not as invasive as our other breast procedures. They do not require the use of foreign materials.

Our surgeons perform corrective surgery on people all over the world. To make your experience seamless, they use dissolvable stitches. You do not have to travel back to our clinic for extra appointments. Your stitches will dissolve over time without any further intervention. 

The recovery period for nipple surgery is less intensive than other surgeries. You can expect to resume your normal activities within a few days. We advise our patients to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities for a few weeks after surgery. You can manage the pain with common household painkillers such as paracetamol. 

Our aftercare team will give you all the information you need to have a successful recovery.
