Nipple correction

Large Nipples
Oversized nipples can easily be reduced, although some of the milk ducts are then lost. It is imperative to inform the surgeon at the initial consultation if you wish to breastfeed after surgery. In this case, he will opt for another procedure which does not reduce the nipple as much thus preserving the milk ducts. 
 
Disformed nipples
There are different forms of inverted nipples. Some nipples are malformed, a phenomenon noticeable at puberty. This form is the most difficult to treat since it is necessary to cut the milk ducts which are too short and pull the nipple inwards. Breastfeeding is no longer possible after an intervention. This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and often leaves a crust for a few weeks. 
 
Normal nipples
A normally constituted nipple can sometimes invaginate. This can easily be solved by means of a small ring placed under the skin preventing repetition, a procedure which is performed under local anaesthetic leaving no scar.
The success rate of nipple correction is not 100%. Some invaginate again after the operation in which case it is necessary for a nipple implant to be made by making a small incision on the edge of the areola. This operation is only performed as a last resort since it also increases the risk of infection and rejection.
 
Oversized areola

It is simple to reduce the size of areola leaving only a small scar. An areola has an average diameter of 4.5 cm. This also takes place under local anaesthetic leaving the mammary gland and the milk ducts intact.
