Inverted Nipple Surgery
Inverted nipples are a condition that is extremely common amongst women and men. 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 are 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.
I recently had surgery with Dr. Scott Newman 5 months ago. He did a breast lift with implants and, at the same time he fixed my upper and lower eyelids. I must say, Dr. Newman has changed my life. My eyelid result looks completely natural- I look refreshed but no one can even tell it was from surgery. My breast result is better than anything I imagined I could ever achieve. I saw two other doctors before deciding on Dr. Newman and neither of them gave me the confidence that Dr. Newman gave me. Now, 5 months later, I have scars that are barely visible and I just got back from a vacation where I wore a bikini for the first time in fifteen years! This was the best decision I ever made and I recommend Dr. Newman highly.

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 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.
