Inverted nipples are a relatively common problem. Correction may be achieved using both non-surgical and surgical means. Most ladies would have tried proprietary methods available to improve inverted nipples but if these are unsuccessful then consultation with a plastic surgeon may be indicated. A variety of surgical techniques may be employed most of which at the cost of cutting the milk ducts. Mr Banwell will discuss the procedure most appropriate for you.
Mr Banwell recommends the surgery be performed under local anaesthesia although some patient elect to have this performed under general anaesthesia undertaken by a specialist anaesthetist.
The procedure is relatively minor in terms of recovery and most ladies on average are able to return to the activities of daily living immediately. The sutures used need to be removed at 2 weeks. Sometimes a small wire is inserted; when this technique is used, it too needs to be removed at 2 weeks. A small dressing is applied and this will be removed at one week at the first post-operative visit.
