Nipple Correction

Nipple correction at Rosenpark Clinic: for a pleased glance into the mirror.

Enlarged or asymmetrical nipples and inverted nipples are not just an aesthetic problem for many women. They are often hypersensitive and tend to become irritated.

  • The most frequent problem involves inverted nipples – shortened strands of connective tissue pull them inwards or allow them to become sunken.
  • Overly large nipples – enlarged areolas – generally occur when the breast does not return to normal dimensions after weaning.
  • Isolated enlargement or slackening of the actual nipple may even occur.

At Rosenpark Clinic, the breast experts correct any nipple anomalies you may have with comparatively trouble-free procedures, much experience, expert knowledge and a sense of proportion.

How is it performed?

  • In the case of inverted nipples, the incision begins near the edge of the areola before the connective tissue strands are severed. Then a special suturing technique pulls the nipple permanently outwards.
  • To reduce the size of the areola, a part of the circumference is cut out. Using a special suturing technique, the wound is then closed: The sutures are not visible; in an ideal case, a thin and barely visible scar remains.
  • In nipple reduction procedures, various techniques are used – in accordance with patients' requirements.

What kind of anesthesia is required?

The surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia and, if desired, also under sedation. For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

When can I resume normal daily activities?

We will place a pressure dressing after the outpatient surgery. You should in any case take it easy for a few more days.
