Nipple Surgery in Houston, Texas (TX)
The appearance of your nipples can affect how you feel about
your breasts, and conditions such as inverted nipple can cause problems with
breastfeeding or infection. Nipple surgery can correct issues with your nipple size,
shape, and protrusion for healthier and more attractive breasts.
How nipple surgery is performed
Nipple surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under
local or general anesthesia. Your surgeon can reduce the size of your nipples by making incisions at the base and
removing excess skin. The base of the nipple is then stitched back into the center
of the areola, which is the circular area of darker skin around your nipple.
There are multiple surgical options to correct inverted nipples so they project
normally. Your surgeon can make incisions at the base of your nipples and
stretch or sever the interior tissue that is pulling your nipples inward. If
your milk ducts are causing your inverted nipples then correcting the condition
may affect your ability to breastfeed. For severe cases, your nipple can be
supported with a prosthetic device placed inside it to prop it up.
Recovery after surgery
Most women can return to work after three days, and you’ll
have to avoid strenuous activity for two to three weeks while you heal. Pain, swelling,
and discomfort will diminish after a few days. Some women may have decreased
sensation after nipple surgery and your ability to breastfeed may also be
The cost of nipple surgery vary on a case by case basis. Factors
that affect costs include surgery fees, anesthesia fees, your location, and
your health insurance coverage. Your surgeon can explain the costs related to
your specific procedure.
