Nipple correction

For a beautiful breast, not only shape and fullness are important, but also an aesthetic nipple of the right size, shape and positioning.

Correction of the nipples and areolas is possible under local anaesthesia and only rarely affects breastfeeding function. However, nipple corrections are not only interesting for women! Men are also affected by deformities that can be corrected in minor procedures.

Before and After Pictures

Reduction of the areola

The reduction of the areola is usually performed in the course of a breast lift or augmentation. However, it is also possible to have a small operation with a local anaesthetic, in which a fine incision is made around the areola to adjust it to the desired size. The causes of inverted nipples are varied and are often the result of too short mammary gland ducts or scarring caused by breastfeeding periods, genetics or breast infections. The nipple often even disappears behind the surface of the breast. In an outpatient procedure, the shortened mammary gland ducts are separated and fixed with the help of a special suture technique so that the nipple remains permanently on the outside.

Nipple shortening/ nipple reduction

Longer breastfeeding periods and genetic predisposition can cause the nipple to appear too long and pose an aesthetic problem. This can be quickly corrected in a small operation: after local anaesthesia, the excess tissue of the nipple is first marked and then the skin of the marked area is carefully “peeled off”. The shortened nipple is then sutured back to the areola. Sensitivity and the ability to breastfeed are retained.

Any form of nipple correction can be performed under local anaesthesia, if not in combination with another procedure. The area of the suture must not be allowed to get wet for about 7 days, which is why heavy physical exertion is not recommended during this period. However, no loss of work or other activities is necessary.
