Nipple Correction London
Inverted Nipple Surgery
Specialist Plastic Surgeon Mr Dario Rochira has over 15 years experience in cosmetic surgery and regularly performs all types of breast surgery, including to correct inverted nipples, at private hospitals in London.
Inverted nipples are a relatively common problem but can cause a significant amount of anxiety and distress. However correction may be achieved with surgery. In Mr Rochira’s experience, Nipple Correction Surgery is an operation with a high success rate and can have major positive effects on patient well-being.
A variety of surgical techniques may be employed most of which involve cutting the milk ducts. Usually two incisions are made at the base of the nipple, the ducts are cut and then the nipple is everted and suspended into position. The whole procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic.
While recurrence is considered rare, it is known to occur.
Complications of Surgery
Unfortunately complications can occur following any surgery and patients need to be fully aware of this. Mr Rochira does his utmost to minimise known complications, the commonest of which are, hypertrophic scars, bleeding, infection, nipple necrosis, inability to breast feed, asymmetry in the healing and outcome, alteration in nipple sensation and recurrence.
Recovery following Nipple Correction Surgery
Following surgery, a protective sponge dressing remains in for 1 week. The stitches around the nipple are dissolvable or removed after 2 weeks.
It is important to take things easy for a week or so and it is recommended that you refrain from excericise until the sutures are removed. Otherwise recovery is rapid and patients usually experience few problems.
Some people, especially men may be unhappy with the size of their nipples as they feel they are too long or too projected. They may be unhappy for a purely cosmetic reason, or it may be because their nipples are causing them discomfort.
It not uncommon for men to feel self-conscious about their nipples and affect how comfortable they feel in certain items of clothing or when doing activities that require a bare chest, such as swimming.
A nipple reduction is a minor surgical procedure that can address these concerns by reducing the size and the projection of your nipples. The procedure takes usually 30 minutes leaving no visible scars.
