Nipple Surgery in Australia – All About It

Nipple surgeons in Australia – what can they do for you?

Are you interested in undergoing nipple surgery in Australia? Such a procedure can be used to correct a wide range of nipple deformities (inverted nipples, excessively large nipples, etc) which can cause a lot of distress among women. A nipple surgeon in Australia can perform the aforementioned procedure to correct such conditions enabling the nipples to protrude.

Most women with enlarged or inverted nipples are born with such issues. If that sounds like you then you can turn to nipple correction or areola surgery for treatment. In order to become a good candidate for the operation though, one must be at least 18 years of age and have gone through the menstrual cycle for 2 to 3 years. The breasts need to have fully developed by the time of the surgery in order to avoid possible complications and yield effective results.

More about nipple correction surgery

The manner in which nipple surgery is performed can vary depending on the nature and extent of the problems. In the case of inverted nipples, breast surgeons need to create incisions enabling the nipples to protrude as normal. In some cases, making incisions may prove insufficient prompting the breast surgeon to work on the surrounding breast tissues. Nipple surgery typically takes around 30 minutes to complete and performed under local anaesthetics

Just as it is with any other surgical procedure, there are certain risks involved when undergoing nipple surgery in Australia. Such risks include excessive bruising and swelling, bleeding, infections, excessive scarring, inability to breastfeed, and adverse reaction to local anaesthetics. Choosing a reputable breast surgeon will help you to somewhat reduce these risks.

You can expect such a surgeon to help you set the right expectations for the operation and come to terms with the possible risks and what he can do to mitigate the aforementioned complications.
