Nipple correction surgery corrects the problems associated with enlarged, asymmetrical, protruding or inverted nipples.
Inverted nipples are sometimes seen in younger women, and occur due to a growth problem as the breast develop, and the nipples are held back by internal connections. This can be embarrassing and cause concerns with the appearance of the breasts, and if severe may cause problems with breast feeding. Nipple inversion can usually be corrected with a fairly simple surgical procedure, with minimal scars. Dr Merten will explain this in detail to you at your consultation, and explain the likelihood of a successful outcome, as well as the potential for loss of nipple sensation and problems with later breast feeding.
Enlarged nipples are usually a result of breast feeding, and can also cause embarassment and be unattractive. Nipple reduction surgery is usually a simple procedure, to return the nipples to a more proportionate size and appearance to complement your breasts, with minimal risk or scars.
