Nipple Correction in New Jersey

Nipple appearance is an important feature of attractive breasts. The nipple is a projectile surrounded by dark skin- the areola. Albeit, a small area, women are embarrassed by visibility, size, shape or inversion. Rumor had it that one famous TV actress wore pasties over her nipples to prevent them from being visible.

Am I a Good Candidate for Nipple Correction?

Board Certified Female Plastic Surgeon Dr. Beverly Friedlander

Nipples are a small part of the breast, but like their big sister, they are associated with positive self-esteem when they behave, and embarrassment in social situations or during intimacy when they don’t.

Dr. Friedlander has a great deal of experience correcting these problems, in both men and women. Interestingly, men are plagued by some of the same issues here. While the incidence in men is significantly lower than in women, the problems can be equally distressing. Nipple and areola correction are frequently performed with other cosmetic breast procedures. You may be a candidate for New Jersey nipple correction if you have any of the following:

  • Overly projecting or large nipples
  • Nipple visibility in clothing
  • Nipple inversion
  • Large areola
  • Puffy areola
  • Nipple position

What Can Be Done to Correct Areola Problems?

Beverly Friedlander, MD

Often times, areola correction is done as part of a different procedure. Large areola are routinely reduced and nipple position adjusted during uplift or reduction procedures. Puffy areola are usually a tell tail sign of tuberous breasts in their more severe form and are corrected during that procedure.

What Can Be Done to Correct Nipple Problems?

Procedures to correct overly projecting nipples and nipple inversion can be performed under local anesthesia and take less than one hour. Of course, they can also be performed with any other breast procedure.

  • Nipple inversion is caused by retractile bands pulling the nipple into the breast. These bands need to be divided and the nipple supported with sutures for about a week to reduce the likelihood of recurrence. Nursing will not be possible after this is done, so this should be postponed until after child bearing if you are planning to nurse.
  • Nipple reduction is a relatively simple procedure where the nipple is treated like an accordion. Some of the outer skin is removed allowing the nipple to partially retract. This will not affect the ducts, and nursing is possible afterwards. Alternatively, the tip of the nipple may be amputated, leaving ¼ to ½ of the nipple behind. This heals nicely leaving the ducts intact. If the base of the nipple is wide, this can be reduced by removing a wedge of tissue followed by advancing the edges resulting in a smaller diameter.

Am I a candidate for Nipple Correction?

Determining your candidacy for nipple correction treatment depends on several factors. The primary purpose of this procedure is to address issues such as inverted, enlarged, or asymmetrical nipples. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your nipples and desire to improve their aesthetics, you may be a candidate for nipple correction. It is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon who specializes in this procedure to evaluate your specific case and discuss your goals and expectations.

While nipple correction surgery is generally safe and effective, there are certain contraindications and disqualifications to consider. Age is an important factor, as individuals should typically be at least 18 years old to undergo this procedure. This ensures that the breasts have fully developed and stabilized. Additionally, individuals who have underlying health conditions that may affect the healing process or increase the risks of surgery may not be suitable candidates. These conditions may include uncontrolled diabetes, certain autoimmune disorders, or active infections. It is crucial to disclose your complete medical history and any allergies you may have during your consultation to ensure your safety and determine your eligibility for the procedure.

What Is the Recovery Like After Nipple Correction?

These procedures can be performed under a local anesthesia. Patients can return to work the next day. A protective nipple guard needs to be worn 24/7 for 1-2 weeks. These procedures result in a high degree of patient satisfaction.

How much does Nipple Correction cost?

Nipple correction costs typically between $1,500 and $5,000, although the final price may vary based on factors such as location, surgeon expertise, and complexity of the case. This estimate covers the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility fees, and post-operative visits.

It’s important to note that nipple correction is usually considered a cosmetic procedure and is not typically covered by insurance. However, it’s advisable to check with your insurance provider to determine if there are any specific circumstances under which coverage may be available. Financing options or payment plans may be offered by some clinics to help manage the cost.

It’s crucial to prioritize selecting a skilled surgeon for safe and satisfactory results, as opting for lower-cost options may compromise the quality of the procedure. Consulting with a plastic surgeon will provide accurate cost estimates and the opportunity to discuss financial considerations and insurance options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, nipple correction surgery is generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. Like any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks involved, such as infection, bleeding, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. However, with proper preoperative evaluation, meticulous surgical techniques, and postoperative care, the risks can be minimized, making nipple correction a safe option for eligible candidates.

Yes, nipple correction surgery typically provides long-lasting or permanent results. The procedure aims to address issues such as inverted, enlarged, or asymmetrical nipples and reshape them to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. While the results can be long-lasting, it is important to note that the aging process and certain lifestyle factors may influence the shape and position of the nipples over time. Nevertheless, most individuals experience significant and enduring improvements in the appearance of their nipples after the procedure.

Nipple correction surgery may result in some degree of scarring. However, skilled plastic surgeons employ techniques that aim to minimize visible scarring. Incisions are typically made in inconspicuous areas and are strategically placed to optimize the healing process. Over time, scars tend to fade and become less noticeable. It is important to follow postoperative care instructions and keep the incision sites clean and protected to promote optimal healing and minimize the appearance of scars.

Breast surgery, including nipple correction, can potentially affect nipple sensitivity. Some individuals may experience temporary or permanent changes in nipple sensation following the procedure. However, the extent of these changes can vary among individuals. While some individuals may notice a temporary decrease or increase in nipple sensitivity, others may experience no changes at all. It is important to discuss potential risks and side effects, including changes in nipple sensitivity, with your plastic surgeon during the consultation to make an informed decision.

Breast surgery, including nipple correction, does not increase the risk of developing breast cancer. However, it is crucial to have regular breast screenings and mammograms, as recommended by your healthcare provider, to monitor breast health. As with any surgical procedure, there are general risks and potential complications involved, such as infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, or poor wound healing. By selecting a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon and following preoperative and postoperative instructions, the risk of complications can be minimized. It is essential to discuss any concerns and potential risks specific to your case with your plastic surgeon to ensure a safe and successful outcome.
