Not aesthetic appearance of the nipple or areola surrounding it in most cases does not interfere with the function of the breast. But women seeking perfection of its shape, this small flaw can cause significant psychological distress and can therefore be corrected for aesthetic indications. If the inverted nipples hinder breast-feeding, their correction becomes necessary for functional reasons.

The choice of surgery technology depends on the type of existing defect.

Inverted nipples are due to the presence of short strands in the milk ducts that can be eliminated using microsurgical techniques. By doing this milk ducts are remained safe making sure that in the future the patient will be able to feed her baby. The breast tissue is not damaged and the postoperative scar is almost invisible.

To correct the excessively developed nipple, which in most cases is formed after repeated periods of breast-feeding, we use the method of wedge excision of tissue.

Areolas forms are corrected by excision of pigmented areas without affecting the milk ducts. In the future the surgery conducted will not affect the possibility of breastfeeding.

Finally, if there is an absence of the nipple or areola we conduct reconstructive surgery. In order to form the nipple, we use the skin of the breast and areola — the pigmented section of skin from the area of ​​the perineum or from the second, non-deformed areola. In some particularly difficult cases after areola correction surgery permanent makeup can be made.

The operation is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Usually patient is not experiencing pain after correction. In some cases there is only a slight burning sensation which does not even require the use of analgesics.
