If you have inverted, flat, or "shy nipples," your confidence could be lower than you'd like it to be. A short, simple, in-office procedure can address this concern and provide a natural, balanced aesthetic for your nipples. We strive to deliver the best inverted nipple surgery Newport Beach has to offer. Inverted Nipple Correction uses delicate surgical techniques to turn the nipple outward and give you the boosted confidence you've been missing.
Creating a more natural and symmetrical look for the nipples can greatly increase confidence and provide patients with a sense of aesthetic satisfaction. While this is typically not a medically necessary surgery and is performed for cosmetic reasons, there are both aesthetic and functional benefits.
Ideal candidates for inverted nipple surgery are those seeking to correct flat nipples or nipples that are turned inward. As with any surgical procedure, our Newport Beach inverted nipple surgery patients should be in overall good health, non-smokers, and be free from any chronic or underlying conditions that might make healing difficult. Those who are currently breastfeeding or pregnant should wait to undergo this procedure. It's also very important to understand the likely outcomes of this procedure and have realistic expectations for results.
Dr. Richland is truly dedicated to understanding his patient's unique needs and preferences in order to craft a detailed treatment plan and provide the most optimal results for each individual. If you decide together that inverted nipple correction is right for you, details on the procedure will be provided along with preparation instructions. Prior to surgery, you may need to adjust certain medications or supplements to prevent bruising or bleeding.
In many cases, inverted nipple surgery is performed in-office using local anesthesia, making recovery much easier and providing a quick treatment time of usually only 30 to 45 minutes. Dr. Richland will make extremely tiny incisions in order to release tension in the area and may use a strategic suture to reverse the position of the nipple and allow it to project outward. While this can absolutely be a standalone procedure, it is often performed as an addition to other breast surgeries such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery.
The majority of our Newport Beach inverted nipple surgery patients recover in under one week and are back to most regular daily activities within about three days. Some patients experience mild tenderness or discomfort, but it is typically mild and can be relieved by over-the-counter pain meds. While initial recovery is quick, it could still take one to two months before the area is healed enough to reveal final, optimal results. For most patients, results after inverted nipple repair are permanent.
Board-certified Fountain Valley and Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon Richland has impeccable qualifications, a premier education, and an unmatched attention to detail.
