Nipple surgery is usually an outpatient procedure
Women from around the world have come to Dr. Priti P. Patel, MD for nipple repair.
Inverted or “shy” nipples are often more than a cosmetic problem because they may inhibit the ability to breastfeed or enjoy stimulation. Large nipples can cause you to feel self-conscious or even physically uncomfortable when wearing thinner bras or certain shirts. Similarly, many women with overly large areolas are emotionally uncomfortable in intimate settings.
Dr. Priti Patel is experienced in performing this surgery to improve the appearance of the nipple and takes this cosmetic problem seriously. Nipple correction can also be performed as part of another breast enhancement procedure.
Nipple reconstruction surgery
Nipple reconstruction surgery is usually an outpatient procedure that uses skin from the area of the breast where the nipple will be located to form a new nipple. Later, the reconstructed nipple may be tattooed to add color and to create the areola.
The main advantage of getting your nipple reconstructed with surgery is that it will project out from the breast. Some women feel this creates a more natural look.
Nipple reconstruction can give you a good cosmetic outcome, but a reconstructed nipple won’t look and feel like your original nipple. It’s also important to know that most women lose sensation in their breast area after mastectomy and breast reconstruction, so you likely won’t have sensation in your reconstructed nipple either.
