Nipple Correction The perfect cherry on top

Who is a good candidate for nipple correction surgery in Los Angeles?

While most chest surgeries focus on reshaping, volumizing or contouring the breasts, nipple correction treatment helps to improve flaws and defects in the nipple or areola caused by aging, breastfeeding or genetics. Nipple correction can be performed as part of a breast lift, augmentation, reduction or revision, or it can be undergone as a stand-alone procedure.

A qualified surgeon is able to reduce overly enlarged nipples or areolas; balance nipple symmetry; reverse nipple inversions; reconstruct the nipples after a mastectomy; or move the nipples to a more attractive and natural position on the breast. Outcomes for nipple correction surgery are generally excellent, as incisions remain nicely camouflaged by the darker pigment around the areolar complex.

Surgical technique

Nipple/areola correction is performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the extent of the revisions required. Treatment typically lasts 1-2 hours, although it can be shorter if nipple correction is performed by itself. In the majority of cases, the doctor will be able to preserve nipple sensation, and women undergoing the procedure will still be able to breastfeed if they so wish.

During nipple reduction, excess tissue is removed through minute, undetectable incisions around the areola that are then sutured closed. Nipple reduction is commonly performed in conjunction with breast reduction, in which case the nipple/areola size will be precisely adjusted to complement the new breast shape and position.

If the nipple needs to be reconstructed, the doctor may use a variety of innovative techniques that include the grafting of skin, cartilage or tissue flaps, or the use of tattoos. Your surgeon will discuss these options with you at length during your initial consultation.

What is recovery like?

Mild soreness, discomfort and swelling are expected side effects of nipple correction. Your doctor will provide the necessary pain medications as part of a comprehensive aftercare plan individualized to your surgery. Most women can return to work and normal activities within 48-72 hours, although they are encouraged to avoid strenuous exercise or lifting for up to three weeks. Incision sites should be protected from direct sunlight for up to six months, as sun exposure can affect pigmentation, causing scars to darken.
