Saint Louis Inverted Nipple Correction

How are inverted nipples corrected? Individuals can naturally develop inverted nipples, or they can occur after breastfeeding or surgery. To correct inverted nipples, a series of specialized stitches are placed around the nipple to push them out and provide a stable platform. Scarring is minimal.

Inverted Nipple Correction

Associated procedures: Inverted nipple correction can be combined with most other cosmetic procedures of the breasts, body and face.

Anesthesia: Inverted nipple correction is usually performed with the patient under local anesthesia, but under general anesthesia when accompanying other procedures.

Length of procedure: Less than 1 hour.

Estimated recovery time: You can return to work the next day but should avoid vigorous activities for 1 to 2 weeks. Visible bruising and swelling should clear up within 1 to 2 weeks.

Side effects: Common side effects include bruising and swelling. The shape of the nipples may change over time, and the final result may not be realized for a few months.
