Nipple correction

Pretty and well shaped breasts represent a symbol of femininity for most women. The nipple is placed centrally on the breast and it greatly contributes to its esthetics. Beside optical, it is also very important in the sensory way, as a hypersensitive point of women's breasts. Beside breast size, inverted nipple can also negatively influence the woman's psyche. This anomaly is mostly congenital, but it can also be caused by an infection or surgical procedure in the past.

How is inverted nipple correction done?

In order to place an inverted nipple into its correct position we have to make a few millimeters long incision along the nipple line. Connective tissue and milk glands, that invert the nipple must be detached. Thereafter, using circular sutures under the skin we connect the edge of the nipple with the tissue and glands, and it is tightened in order to bring the nipple to its correct position. The procedure is generally done under local anesthesia, although it can also be done under general anesthesia.

Before a nipple correction for women

What happens before an inverted nipple correction?

At the day of the surgery you must not use any greasy shower creams, but soap or showering gel. The skin should not be hydratized. You will get all important information from your doctor during the consultation. You should avoid coagulants at least one week before the surgery and one week after the surgery (consult your general general practitioner). You will be instructed not to eat or drink in the six hours preceding the surgery.

What happens after an inverted nipple correction?

You should wear a bandage a few days after the surgery. After 4 - 7 days we remove the sutures and recommend usage of antibiotic ointment. You must also avoid all external heat sources (sauna, solarium, sunbathing and similar) for at least 2 months after the surgery, and you may take a shower or a bath only after the sutures have been removed.
