When people think of plastic surgery or breast augmentation, nipple surgery doesn’t usually come to mind. However, it is a very real and common procedure that is helping to restore confidence in women and improve the appearance of their breasts.
Improve Appearance of Nipples and Areolas With Reduction
Enlarged nipples can cause many women to become self-conscious in and out of clothing. When nipples become unusually large, it is usually following breastfeeding. Nipple reduction helps to surgically correct large nipples to appear rounder and more symmetric. Along with enlarged nipples, overly large areolas also result in embarrassment and concern for women. More often than not, excessively large areolas are associated with large breasts. Though areola reduction can be performed by itself, it, like nipple reduction, is corrected frequently during breast augmentation or a breast lift. Though there is no correct size for an areola, Dr. Keith Neaman and Dr. Dustin Christiansen will discuss with you your desired results and carefully reduce the areola to a more aesthetically pleasing size.
Correct Inverted Nipples for Improved Breast Appearance
About 2% of women in the United States have inverted nipples. Inverted nipples are inward pointing nipples and can either affect one or both nipples. Causes of inverted nipples can be due to a narrow nipple base, short milk ducts or by possible scarring of the milk ducts. There are stages of inversion and depending on the severity can make women feel self-conscious and may cause breast-feeding problems. The nipple inversion procedure can be performed alone or in combination of another breast procedure such as breast augmentation, breast reduction or breast lift. Depending on if it is combined with another procedure or not, the actual nipple surgery for nipple inversion is quick and the recovery period is short; however, the benefits of increasing your self-confidence and self-esteem are significant.
