… correct nipple deformities & enhance the overall
‘look’ of your breasts!
A well-developed and normal-sized nipple will not only add sensuality to the overall appearance of a breast, but it is also an essential functional requirement for any future breastfeeding.
As a result of the relaxation of social norms and the increasing uncovering of the nipple and breast in magazines, fashion, photographic shoots and social media, there has been an increasing trend worldwide for Corrective Nipple Surgery, dubbed by some as ‘Designer Nipples’.
Fortunately, most forms of Corrective Nipple Surgery can be performed in the privacy of our Clinic’s Operating Theatre under Local Anaesthesia with virtually no downtime and a speedy return to work and normal activities.
Of all the nipple deformities presenting for correction, the commonest by far are Inverted Nipples.
Although Inverted Nipples can occur in both men and women, most patients presenting for correction are women simply because an inverted nipple can affect the overall look of the breast as well as cause embarrassment or self-consciousness in intimate situations. Surgical correction is simple and will allow the nipples to project outwards and complement the overall appearance of the breast.
The condition can affect one or both breasts and it can also vary in degree. In its most severe form, an Inverted Nipple is permanently sunken beneath the level of the surrounding skin and cannot be manipulated out with the fingers. In contrast, a milder form is the ‘Retractile Nipple’ where the nipple is sunken beneath the level of the surrounding skin but can be manipulated out with the fingers.
An inverted nipple can make future breastfeeding more difficult, and in its most severe form, even impossible.
How is it done?
Surgical correction of an inverted nipple is a simple procedure performed in the privacy of our Clinic’s Operating Theatre under Local Anaesthesia only. Correction of one nipple takes around 30 minutes to complete whereas both nipples take around 60 minutes.
Over the years, variations on the basic surgical technique have been described but the one we recommend always involves attaching a small supporting frame to maintain the nipple in its new elevated position for two weeks during its healing phase. Irrespective of the surgical technique used, we believe that post-operative support of the nipple in its new position is absolutely essential to reduce the chances of recurrence.
Overly large nipples, known medically as ‘Macrothelia’, and which not uncommonly are saggy as well, can be easily reduced with a simple surgical procedure in our Clinic’s Operating Theatre under Local Anaesthesia only.
The areola is the pigmented circle around the nipple. Large areolas can be inherited or may develop as a result of an increase in breast size through pregnancy or weight gain. If you’re uncomfortable with the size of your areolas, they can be easily reduced.
Areola Reduction Surgery is a relatively simple procedure that will reduce the diameter of one or both of your areolas. It can be performed on its own, or as part of a Breast Lift, Breast Reduction or Breast Augmentation.
Please note, however, that, even when performed on its own, Areolar Reduction still needs to be done in a Licensed Hospital under General Anaesthesia. However, hospital stay is not required and you can go home shortly after your procedure.
