Nipple correction surgically improves the size, shape or projection of the nipple whether the result of the natural appearance or due to changes resulting from pregnancy or aging.
Incisions to reduce nipple size, to correct projection, or to reconstruct the nipple are inconspicuously placed at the base of the nipple in the areola, the dark skin surrounding the nipple.
These procedures are usually performed as an outpatient procedure, under local anesthesia with sedation, or may be performed under general anesthesia when combined with other breast surgery procedures such as an augmentation or reduction.
Recovery depends on the extent of your nipple correction and any other procedures you may undergo at the same time. You can generally return to normal daily activities within 1-2 days.
Results can be long-term, but any changes to the size or shape of your breast that may result from additional surgery, pregnancy or weight gain or loss, may influence your results.
