Fortunately, inverted nipple surgery is a minor intervention, performed with great proficiency at our plastic surgery clinic in Budapest. The surgeon can completely retain the milk ducts, and this way the surgery does no damage at all to the natural breastfeeding capabilities of the patient.
The correction of inverted nipples means surgically reshaping them to a naturally protruding state. Men are also candidates for inverted nipple surgery; in this case the purpose of the operation is purely cosmetic. When you first hear about nipple surgery, it may sound frightening and painful, but in reality the procedure is very simple, very safe, and completely painless.
Inverted nipple surgery is performed under local anaesthesia.Our experienced,board certified surgeon makes a very small incision in the areola, the darker region around the nipple. The nipple and the tissues under the nipple are then raised to a normal protruding posture. Stitches are then applied to hold the nipple in this position. This method allows the nipple to remain in this position permanently. If breastfeeding capabilities are to be retained, the milk ducts inside the nipple can be fully preserved. However, if breastfeeding is not a concern, then the milk ducts can be detached by the surgeon: this makes the operation simpler and much easier to perform. After the stitching is done, dressing is applied to the area of operation. The whole duration of the surgery is very short compared to other cosmetic interventions; the operation usually does not last for over half an hour.
The healing period
The total amount of time that recovery after nipple correction takes is usually not more than two weeks, and the dressing can be removed after 7-10 days. There may be some natural bruising and swelling during the recovery, and the scars from the surgery will probably take several months to fade. However, you should keep in mind that this is a very minor surgery, and aside from a few uncomfortable side-effects, like pain in the breast area, or a little swelling, there should be no complications at all. Furthermore, if you closely follow your doctor’s directions, everything should be in perfect order, and your recovery will be as quick as possible.
