Correcting inverted nipples with nipple surgery in Sydney

Have you ever heard of nipple surgery in Sydney? It’s a form of breast surgery and one that is designed specifically to correct inverted nipples. Breast surgeries are not only about breast augmentation or implants because the issue is not always about breast size. Some women may have a problem with their areola or nipples.

Nipple surgery in Australia can be an effective solution for nipple size reduction or to lessen the diameter of the areola but it is more commonly performed to correct an inverted nipple which can be quite a problem for many women.

What are inverted nipples?

So what does an inverted nipple actually look like and what are some of the issues associated to having such a condition? Cases of inverted nipples are generally described as one that has a “slit” in place of where the nipples should be and flat in appearance.

Now just as it is with any other breast surgery, the cost of nipple surgery in Sydney can be fairly significant hence it would be best to know all that you can about it before considering areola reduction surgery to treat the condition mentioned above.

Call Dr Tavakoli today on 1300 368 107 to arrange a consultation with a foremost expert on nipple surgery in Sydney.

Inverted nipples not only look unpleasant but can also cause women to feel conscious about how their breast looks and may affect their self-confidence. Inverted nipples can also make breast feeding difficult which can be an issue in child rearing. Nipple surgery presents the most effective solution for addressing such a problem.

Inverted nipples not only affect women but can also be found among men as well although it is certainly a non-issue for the latter. About 20 percent of women are born with the condition but inverted nipples can also be cause by other factors – breast cancer, tuberculosis or the onset of pregnancy.

How is areola reduction surgery performed?

Cases among women with inverted nipples can vary but is always one and the same – to get the nipple to protrude from the areola without affecting nipple sensitivity and breastfeeding functions. Nipple surgery in Sydney is typically performed as an outpatient operation typically taking only 1 to 2 hours to complete.

A typical operation for nipple surgery in Sydney basically involves creating an incision to pull out the nipples along with the fibres within with the intention of spreading it all out on the surface to create a more natural and attractive appearance.

The incision is then treated and closed with layered sutures and surgical dressings. Recovering from the operation is fairly quick and patients can expect to return to their normal routines in a week or two after the surgery.

Patients can expect some bruising and swelling after undergoing a nipple surgery in Sydney and this is completely normal. Women are advised to get back to their regular activities as soon as they feel that they are able to. The stiches are removed in two weeks time with the onset of complete recovery although patients should wait at least 3 weeks before doing anything too strenuous.

Nipple correction is fairly simple compared to other types of breast surgery operations with very few complications. It’s also one of the easiest breast surgery operations to recover from. Nevertheless, you should bring up all of your concerns when consulting with a breast surgeon for the operation.

A good and reputable plastic surgeon ought to be more than able to address any questions or concerns with regards to nipple surgery in Sydney.
