Nipple Correction Surgery

While considering breast surgery, many patients desire alteration in the size of the nipple/areola area. Patients are happy to hear that nipple correction can be performed at the time of their breast augmentation, lift, reduction or reconstruction, with little, if any, additional recovery time. Nipple surgery can also be performed by itself often times in the office using local anesthesia.

Inverted nipples can cause functional as well as emotional concerns for women. Depending upon the severity of the condition an inverted nipple can look flat or a slit like depression or hole at the normal nipple location. Correction can be planned after carefully assessing the patient’s needs and severity of the problem.

Large and/or puffy areolas cause patients to be concerned with their appearance as they may be visible through their clothing.
Large nipples can be bothersome to a woman’s appearance. In addition to genetics nipples can change their shape after pregnancy and breast feeding. When nipples are long or have a large circumference, women may find this unattractive and uncomfortable.
