Nipple correction surgery corrects problems associated with enlarged, asymmetrical, protruding or inverted nipples and can be seen in both men and women.
The nipple is made of two parts: the nipple and the areola. The nipple is the projected part and the areola is the dark pigmented skin that surrounds the nipple. Inverted nipples is the most common nipple correction surgery.
Inverted nipples are the result of an imbalance in muscle traction, where the strength of the outward muscle is weaker than the inward, which can be longer or have a stronger pull, causing the nipple to remain retracted.
We have worked hard to be able to offer an affordable price so patients do not feel pressured to visit under qualified practices or destination surgery.
After a through assessment is made during the consultation a copy for the estimation can be given.
Inverted nipple is an irregularity in which a woman’s nipples point more inwards than outwards. It may be noticeable from childhood or develop over time and results from breast tissue that pinches the base of the nipple, limiting stretch and movement. The constriction may be caused by shortened milk ducts, a reduction in breast tissue (usually after pregnancy), or a combination of the two. Inverted nipples are not typically considered a health hazard, but they can be cosmetically embarrassing, reducing a woman’s quality of life in some situations. Fortunately, there are ways to correct this issue and create a nipple that points outward once again.
Dr Wessels performs nipple reduction to correct nipples that are disproportionately large or long or nipples that tend to droop. He can also bring balance and symmetry to nipples that are different sizes or shapes. The procedure is available to both men and women, since both genders may experience self-consciousness about their bodies due to the size, shape or appearance of the nipples.
Areola reduction surgery is another cosmetic option designed for men and women to correct enlarged, puffy or asymmetrical areolas. For some, the enlargement may be due to a somewhat familiar congenital issue. Others may see changes occur to the size of the areolas over time, due to factors like pregnancy and breastfeeding. In either case, the increased size can cause embarrassment, self-esteem issues and even prevent proper breastfeeding. Fortunately, Dr Wessels performs surgery to correct this.
For patients seeking any type of breast surgery with Dr Wessels correcting an inverted nipple will simply be done during surgery at no extra cost.
For patients who are not interested in breast surgery, a nipple correction can be done under a local anaesthetic in out treatment rooms. Find our more by contacting our team.
