What Are The Most Common Types of Nipple Procedures?
Nipple surgery performed by our skilled San Antonio plastic surgeons can treat a variety of nipple conditions, including the following.
Inverted nipple correction is the most common nipple procedure in our practice. An inverted nipple is a condition in which fibrous bands that travel along the milk ducts pull the nipples inward. This tethering of the nipples can keep the nipple inverted. Our surgeons will make a tiny incision at the base of the nipple and release the fibrous bands constricting the nipple. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or in combination with breast augmentation surgery.
Nipple Size Reduction/Asymmetry Correction
This surgery will treat enlarged or asymmetric nipples, reducing them to make them more aesthetically pleasing. Your surgeon will perform a minor surgery under local anesthesia or in combination with a breast enhancement surgery. The nipple can be adjusted to decrease the size and or projection of the nipple. The ultimate size of the nipple can be tailored to each individual person.
Removal of Extra Nipples
Extra nipples are a congenital condition that our surgeons treat through a minor surgery that removes the excess nipples. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia with a rapid recovery.
Nipple Surgery Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation with our plastic surgery team in San Antonio, we will determine if you are a suitable candidate for nipple surgery. This procedure works best for individuals in good general health but who have a cosmetic issue with their nipples they want to correct.
During your consultation, our team will thoroughly review the pre-and post-operative instructions for the nipple surgery. You will need to follow general surgical pre-operative procedures, including smoking cessation, stopping nicotine products, recreational drugs, and alcohol, and avoiding certain medications to reduce the risk of complications.
