Nipple Surgery

When the nipples are inverted or excessively large, the breasts do not appear as beautiful as they could be. Nipple surgery is performed to correct the nipples in terms of shape and size. Nipples serve an important function in breastfeeding, so when it comes to nipple surgery, it is crucial that their function is kept intact, while enhancing their appearance.

Inverted Nipple

An inverted nipple refers to a condition in which the nipple is buried inside the breast as it is pulled by the mammary ducts that are too short.

Types of Inverted Nipples

Slightly inverted nipples that protrude outward by stimulation

This condition may be corrected with massage therapy or a corrective device. However, if it continues for several months, surgery may be a better option.

Nipple protrusion can be induced by stimulation but doesn’t last long

Surgery should be considered in this case, as it cannot be corrected by massage therapy or a corrective device.

Nipple protrusion cannot be induced by stimulation

Correction is nearly impossible, except with surgery.

Method of Surgery for Inverted Nipples

Preservation of Mammary Ducts

An incision is made in the area surrounding the nipple to resect the fibrous tissue. This method leads to minimal scarring and keeps the breastfeeding function intact.

01 Prior to correction
02 Incision is made on both sides
03 Ducts are extended and the nipple is pushed out
04 Sutured closed

Non-Preservation of Mammary Ducts

This method is applied to cases in which the degree of inversion is severe. There may be damage to the mammary ducts during surgery and this may affect the breastfeeding function later on.

Nipple Reduction Is Recommended For/To

A normal nipple has a diameter of 1 to 1.5cm, on average. If the nipple is too big and protruding, it does not look beautiful aesthetically, and it may even cause problems in breastfeeding.

Method of Surgery for Nipple Reduction

Preservation of Mammary Ducts (Enabling Breastfeeding)

An incision is made in the area surrounding the nipple to resect the fibrous tissue. This method leads to minimal scarring and keeps the breastfeeding function intact.

Non-Preservation of Mammary Ducts (Breastfeeding Not Possible)

A V-shaped incision is made in the upper part of the nipple and sutured closed. This is a definite way of reducing the size of the nipple, but it will lose its breastfeeding function.
