What to Expect During Recovery from Nipple Correction Surgery–
Dr. Ali is a renowned Oakland County board certified plastic surgeon who has performed hundreds of nipple correction surgeries. In this article, Dr. Ali discusses what to expect during the nipple correction surgery recovery period.
How Long is Recovery from Nipple Correction Surgery?
Most patients report that the recovery takes place gradually, but by about six weeks, they are back to normal. Taking care of yourself right after surgery and getting plenty of rest is key to a successful recovery.
As with any surgery, you will need to arrange for someone to drive you home from your procedure since you will have received anesthesia and pain medications. Upon arrival at home, you should plan to rest and relax – no strenuous exercise for at least a week, and optimally more. Over several weeks, you will be able to return to your normal activities, but you should do so gradually. Give yourself plenty of time to heal.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Nipple Correction Surgery?
You will be told to wear a post-surgical compression bra that will keep your breasts in place while they heal. The compression bra will likely be worn for six weeks or so. Dr. Ali will let you know when you may wear your normal bra again.
Your nipples will be sore after the procedure, and most patients find it best to sleep on their backs. Some report that triangle pillows or cushions help them to rest most comfortably.
Don’t be concerned if your nipples seem misshapen for a while after the surgery. Most patients experience some swelling, and that hides the result of the corrective surgery. As the swelling subsides, your nipples will begin to take on the natural, improved appearance that you desire. Final results should be seen in about a month or so.
Will I Have a Scar after Nipple Correction Surgery?
There is always scarring with any incision. However, a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali takes great care to position the scar around the areola so it is virtually undetectable. This scar actually also helps to hold and maintain the shape of the areola.
