The double fellowship-trained NYC Plastic Surgeon has corrected even the most complex inverted nipples using a variety of best in class techniques, some of which do not require surgery.

Many women have nipple and areola abnormalities which can include inverted, enlarged or extended nipples, and puffy, enlarged or discolored areolas. The surgical procedures to correct these issues is actually quite common. Many of these stated conditions can impact breast function, but the abnormalities also all impact the way women feel about their breasts, their self-image and, ultimately, their body self-esteem.

I never thought I would have the guts to go through with the surgery, but am so glad I did. The procedure itself was barely uncomfortable (I’ve had worse experiences at the dentist). I only had minor pain for one day and didn’t need any of the pain meds. Rest of recovery was just awkward and stuff. Dr. Schaffner is as nice as he is talented. I traveled from Boston and would do it all over again without any hesitation! ~ Google

Inverted Nipple Correction Plastic Surgery is a fairly fast and straight-forward and common procedure performed by NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Schaffner.  Inverted Nipple Correction is a safe and a quick out-patient plastic surgery procedure that is performed at the plastic surgeon’s fully accredited surgical suite Manhattan, New York.

The Inverted Nipple Correction plastic surgery procedure (surgical or non-surgical) is generally performed under local anesthesia and takes approximately 30-60 minutes (this varies from case to case). During the Inverted Nipple surgery, adhesion’s which tether your nipple inwards are released by the NYC Plastic Surgeon during the operation. This process allows your nipple to come out and lie in its normal position.

Dissolvable internal stitches are used during the operation and are positioned at the base of the nipple to hold it in position during the healing process. Overall, inverted nipple correction surgery is very successful and the surgeon’s patient report that it is not a painful surgery to recover from.

Please note: You will be less likely to breast feed after inverted nipple correction plastic surgery. This is because the milk ducts which carry the milk from the underlying breast glands to the nipple will be divided during the operation.

The inability to breastfeed afterwards is the main downside of inverted nipple correction and is something you’ll need to consider carefully before going ahead with the procedure if you are planning to have a family and would like to breastfeed.  In addition, it is common to have altered (usually decreased) sensation to the nipple because sensory nerve fibers may be affected.
