Inverted Nipple Repair at South Coast Plastic Surgery
Are you self-conscious about the appearance of your nipples or areolas? Then it’s time to discover inverted nipple repair at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA.
What is Inverted Nipple Repair?
Inverted nipple repair is a type of plastic surgery that corrects the appearance of misshapen, inverted, and even puffy areolas and nipples. The goal of inverted nipple repair is to help patients feel more confident in their skin again, as well as address any issues that may be causing frustration with breastfeeding or other physical sensations. Inverted nipple repair surgery can be an excellent medical and cosmetic procedure, with high patient satisfaction outcomes.
Some may have an inverted nipple on just one side and others may have them on both sides. Our plastic surgeons are trained in the best, most reliable techniques to correct your inverted nipples.
How Does It Work?
In many cases, inverted nipple repair can be performed right here at South Coast Plastic Surgery and under local anesthesia. Typically, this surgery involves correcting the shortened milk duct, which is usually responsible for creating an inverted appearance. The surgery is short and sweet, with many patients able to return to their normal routine a few days after the procedure.
Sometimes women notice their inverted nipples correct when they push on the breast. When women have smaller breasts, the inverted nipples can actually be corrected with a breast augmentation as the implant inside pushes the inverted nipple out.
Am I a Good Candidate For Inverted Nipple Repair?
You’re a good candidate for inverted nipple repair surgery if you have shortened or inverted nipples, and you feel self-conscious about their appearance. The best candidates are healthy nonsmoking individuals with realistic expectations for their procedure.
