What is Nipple Correction Surgery?

A Nipple Correction Surgery is a procedure done to improve the appearance and functionality of the nipples, particularly in inverted nipples condition.

An inverted nipple is a state in which your nipple is pulled into the bust. A correction can be done with a simple surgery to push the nipples out. This is not only recommended for cosmetic purposes, but also for breastfeeding disorders and mastitis.

How It Works

In this procedure, the connecting tissues that keep the nipples inverted will be released by the surgeon. In the majority of cases, a tiny incision will be performed at the nipples and through the incision, a very fine instrument will be used to release the foreshortened duct that causes the nipples to be inverted. The scar from the incision will heal, in which it will not be visible.

Treatment Procedure

1. Consultation and examination with the doctor.
2. Before the procedure starts, anesthesia will be administered.
3. Small incision will be made at the base of the nipple, and the nipple will be lifted up.
4. The tethering tissue will be released.
5. Stitches will be made to close the incision and support the projection of the nipple.
6. End of procedure. The doctor will give guidance on aftercare.
