FAQ Inverted Nipple Correction
Can plastic surgery correct inverted nipples? Can I enlarge or reduce the size of my areola?
With inverted nipples, the problem is that the ducts are too short and tether the nipple. This can be corrected in the office under local anesthesia. The procedure is very and fairly simple. The incision is small and located on the underside of the nipple so that it is difficult to see.
The areola can be reduced in size or enlarged. This may be done as a standalone type of procedure under local anesthesia. Or, it may be done in conjunction with an augmentation, breast reduction or breast lift.
