Inverted Nipple Correction is a relatively straightforward procedure that is available in Brighton through acclaimed cosmetic surgeon Paul Banwell.
The surgery is one that can have a huge impact, especially psychologically.
Many women live with inverted nipples for many years and, while not a direct health concern, it is a condition that can greatly impact self esteem and confidence and so impinge in to all aspects of life.
Surgery to correct inversion of the nipples is not expensive – in Brighton it can cost under £1,000 including surgeon and hospital fees. It is also not a procedure that comes with a lengthy recovery period or demands weeks off work.
The decision to have inverted nipples corrected can have huge immediate benefits. It is a genuine delight to speak to women post surgery and see just how major a change this had had to their psyche, how their self-esteem has been boosted.
The surgery will be suitable for a high percentage of those who have inverted nipples, a condition that often becomes apparent either around puberty or following pregnancies (often after a few pregnancies).
At a consultation, a surgeon would ascertain your suitability, looking at your medical history and also whether a procedure can produce the results you are looking for.
It would be usual to have first tried non surgical methods for correction of inverted nipples, for instance nippelette. If you were unaware that non surgical options existed, please take the time to research their potential suitability in your case.
The surgery is often not suitable for anyone planning further pregnancies as it involves cutting the breast milk ducts. Other surgical approaches may be available but this will always be a consideration to factor in.
As with any cosmetic procedure, even one as relatively straightforward as a treatment for an inverted nipple or nipples, a thorough consultation at a Brighton clinic would always be applicable.
There is more than one procedure available, most of which involve the cutting of the milk ducts.
Usually, two incisions are made at the base of the nipple, the ducts cut and the nipple everted and suspended into position.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and Mr Bamwell likes to also administer an anaesthetic cream – patients can choose general anaesthetic if they prefer. The surgery takes around an hour and a half and the most uncomfortable part is the initial injection of local anaesthetic.
Patients can typically return home later the same day; this is not a procedure that places huge demands upon the body or leads to lengthy recovery.
A protective sponge dressing will remain in place for a week and the stitches are removed at around the two-week mark.
It is advised to take it easy for a while, but recovery is usually quick and without issue. It may be up to eight weeks until you can engage in strenuous exercise – your surgeon will provide you with full recovery details.
There can be mild pain post surgery as it settles down, this can be relieved with standard over-the-counter pain killers.
The treatment cost is made up of the surgeon fee and also the hospital fee – as such it can vary depending on the facility chosen.
In Brighton, Mr Banwell operates from the wonderful Brighton Nuffield on Warren Road, a modern private hospital with state of the art facilities and superb verified, independent reviews.
The only other expense to consider is anaesthetic, for any patient choosing genera there is an additional cost for the services of a professional anaesthetist.

I consider myself blessed when I came across you Mr Banwell. You performed my operation almost a year ago which I am pleased to say was a GREAT success. I am more than pleased with the results, my whole shape is so much more defined and I love it. From the first time I met you at my initial consultation, you put me at ease immediately and never pressured me at any point to undertake the operation, you also never tired of my questions and you offered me only professional sound guidance and advice. You as a surgeon I have found to be completely transparent, knowledgeable, educated beyond most surgeons (that I came across) and totally professional, your skills and attention to detail are second to none.
My whole experience was fantastic from start to finish and I am extremely happy with my results. If I had any questions I also got a satisfactory answer and quickly. I would recommend Mr Banwell to anyone who was interested, and I would and probably will be back!
Mr Banwell had by far the best experience and training for the procedure I needed; I was thrilled with the results. I was very pleased with everything. I was looked after by an amazing nurse and the results definitely made it worthwhile.
Now that I have been ‘signed off’ I just want to thank you so much for all your care, expertise and advice. I am so happy with the result of my surgery; it has bought back a confidence which I had lost, and enabled me to wear clothes which previously wouldn’t have suited me. I will know where to come if I decide I need anything else improved!
During the time I have been in the care of Paul and the team I have been treated extremely well and very professionally, I could not have asked for better care. Paul was extremely caring and considerate throughout this time and has put me at ease during any procedures that I have had carried out. I trust his judgement completely and recommended Paul to a close family member who had a similar problem.
I was made to feel at ease with everything. Nothing was too much, lots of care and thought. Pain was very minimal. Lots of follow up care which was first class. I got exactly what I wanted, I have a lovely new look which I could not achieve on my own. If something is bothering you and you can not get to your goal there is help. I had an excellent experience.
