Inverted nipples are a condition that is extremely common amongst men and women. Some individuals have nipples that are permanently inverted, and some have nipples that only invert sometimes. For instance, their condition can reverse after changes in stimulation or temperature. In most cases, having one or two inverted nipples will not affect you drastically or affect your nipple sensitivity. In addition, it is a natural occurrence and does not increase your risk for any major health complications. However, you can reverse an inverted nipple for aesthetic reasons. That’s where inverted nipple surgery in New York City comes in.

Understanding The Procedure

Inverted nipple surgery is considered as a minor procedure so it can be performed under local anesthetic. In most cases, the procedure can be completed within 30 minutes (15 minutes for each nipple). In fact, you will be able to walk in and out of your appointment in under an hour. Since it is a very common procedure, there is little to no risks associated with inverted nipple surgery.

The surgical procedure involves making an incision around the nipple, separating or dividing the ducts, and then allowing the nipple to sit naturally. Once this part is done, your surgeon may use soluble internal stitches at the base of your nipple to hold it in position during the recovery period.

My overall experience with Dr. Newman and his staff was excellent!
My initial meeting with Dr. Newman was for breast augmentation, but after finding out I had breast cancer just a short time later, Dr. Newman was the best doctor I could have asked for to help me through. He assisted my breast doctor in performing my double mastectomy and performed every reconstruction surgery after that, and my results are amazing!!

How Will Inverted Nipple Surgery Impact Your Life?

A majority of individuals who have inverted nipples are extremely embarrassed and reluctant to discuss the condition with loved ones. Naturally, this level of embarrassment can result in some negative issues within intimate relationships, wearing tight-fitting clothing, or entering public changing rooms. You may be pleased to know that inverted nipple surgery NYC brings positive results. You will be happier and confident with the appearance of your breasts and do not feel the need to disguise/hide your nipples.

How Long Will It Take For You To Recover From An Inverted Nipple Surgery Procedure?

When you are recovering from an inverted nipple surgery procedure, you may experience mild discomfort but can return to work within a day or two. During the first week of recovery, your dressings should be kept intact and only changed at the end of the week. To make it more convenient, you may even request to return to our clinic to help you change the dressings. Other than that, slight bruising, scabbing, swelling, or bleeding is to be expected, so there is nothing to worry about. Keeping the skin moisturized and taking Paracetamol can help with pain-relief. All in all, full recovery may be around 6 weeks post-surgery.
