Ideal candidates for nipple correction
Ideal candidates for nipple correction surgery are women and men with oversized, malformed, or inverted nipples. Typically, those with inverted nipples are either born with this condition or develop this trait later in life, often specifically after certain medical conditions such as breast cancer.
Overly- large or misshapen nipples can be caused by genetics or can develop after breastfeeding. Regardless of the cause of your condition, our team can perform a thorough assessment to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for nipple correction.

Procedure for nipple correction
Nipple correction surgery is performed under local anesthetic and usually only takes about 30 minutes. Since each person is unique, the procedure techniques will vary. Typically, an incision is made around the nipple to divide and separate the ducts. This process allows the nipples to sit naturally. Once the ideal contour is created, dissolvable stitches are placed to hold the nipple in place. The results will yield a more forward and natural projection of the nipples.
What to expect from nipple correction
You may experience some mild discomfort or swelling in the treatment area, but these symptoms should subside within one to two days. Any pain can be eased with over-the-counter medication such as acetaminophen. Optimal healing usually takes a few weeks and reveals a perkier, nicely-formed appearance. The level of scarring will reflect your specific condition and the surgical technique used during your procedure. Our highly trained and skilled surgeons will do their best to make incisions strategically to conceal scarring as much as possible.
