3 Things to Know About Inverted Nipple Repair Surgery
- Posted on: Apr 15 2017
There is nothing that can boost your confidence quite as much as feeling comfortable in your skin— especially when you’re naked. If you have inverted nipples, however, you may be extremely self-conscious about anyone–including yourself— seeing you without your shirt on. Luckily, Dr. York Yates can perform surgery to help permanently fix your inverted nipples— leaving you with the confidence you need to feel 100% comfortable in your skin. Read on to learn more.
How Is Surgery Done?
There are two methods that can be used to repair inverted nipples. One of the procedures involves releasing scar tissue, and the other involves shortening milk ducts. During your initial consultation with Dr. York Yates, you will be examined to determine what exactly is causing your inverted nipples. Depending on the problem and the severity of the issue, Dr. Yates will then decide what method is best to use. By making a small, discreet incision at the bottom of the nipple, Dr. York Yates will be able to release tissues or sever the shortened milk ducts. Once that portion is complete, Dr. Yates will then stitch you up and send you into recovery.
What Are Results Like?
The great thing about inverted nipple correction surgery is that you will receive great results. After your nipples have healed properly, you will notice that your nipples are no longer inverted— the best result possible.
What Is Recovery Like?
Once you are done with surgery, you will be closely monitored for an hour or so to make sure that you are stable enough to go home. Once you are at home, we encourage our patients to rest for a few days to help with the healing process. During recovery, most patients experience some swelling and discomfort, but that should subside after just a few days. If your swelling or pain worsens, contact Dr. York Yates right away to make sure that you don’t have an infection.
Having inverted nipples is enough to make you never want to take your top off— even if it’s just to shower. However, with surgery, Dr. York Yates can fix this problem and help you feel as confident as ever.
