What Is Nipple Surgery?
Nipple surgery is a type of aesthetic surgery. Aesthetic surgery alters a patient’s physical appearance to create an aesthetically pleasing outcome. It is characterised by its minimally invasive nature and lack of scars.
The term ‘nipple imperfections’ covers a wide range of problems such as large areolas, bulging areolas, flat nipples, and inverted nipples. Nipple imperfections are a common problem that can be corrected with minimally invasive aesthetic surgery.
Our surgeons specialise in nipple reduction surgery, flat nipple correction surgery, and inverted nipple surgery. In most cases, it does not take more than an hour to complete the surgery and create a happier, more confident you.
What Types of Nipple Surgery Are There?
There are lots of different types of nipple imperfections. Large areolas, bulging nipples, and inverted nipples are among the most common imperfections that people all over the world contact us about.
Nipple reduction surgery - This type of surgery covers large areolas and large nipples. Some nipples can bulge and become asymmetrical. Like bulging nipples, large areolas can cause self-consciousness and discomfort.
For areola reduction procedures, our surgeons remove a circular amount of flesh from the areolas. Bulging nipples require a different approach. Our surgeons work on a case by case basis. In some cases, they will perform liposuction to remove excess tissue.
Inverted nipple correction surgery - Like reduction surgery, inverted nipple correction surgery is a safe and simple procedure. Our surgeons cut underneath the nipple and free it from the areola. They add a stitch to the nipple and secure a temporary splint to hold it in position. Patients need to keep the splint and stitch in place for around a week to achieve their desired outcome.

Nipple Surgery Recovery
Nipple surgery is considered to be an aesthetic procedure. This means that it is not as invasive as other types of breast surgeries. Patients who opt for aesthetic surgery can expect fewer scars and a shorter recovery period.
The recovery time for nipple surgery varies from person to person. Most patients can resume their usual day-to-day activities after a week of surgery. It is important to secure and protect any gauze and dressings until it is safe to remove them. Failing to do so can result in infections.
