Inverted Nipple Correction Brighton

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.

Suitability for inverted nipple correction in Brighton

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.

The Inverted Nipple Procedure

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.

Post Inverted Nipple Surgery Care

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.

Cost of Inverted Nipple Surgery Treatment in Brighton

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.

Just a note to say a big thank you for your professional expertise, your excellent care and your kindness towards me during my treatment.

The team at the McIndoe Surgical Centre who looked after me were very friendly and helpful. They calmed me down and put to rest any last minute concerns. I love the outcome of the surgery and would definitely recommend Mr Banwell to other people.

I went to see Mr Banwell to get reassurance about the moles and blemishes which have been steadily growing since I was a young adult. 30 years ago we were not aware of the dangers of the sun and burning on holiday way an annual ritual. Thankfully we are all now aware that the sun damage can cause skin cancer and the changes in my moles mean I have a precautionary approach, particularly as older family members have had tumours removed. Paul knows exactly what he was looking for and studied each and every mole methodically. The two he highlighted for treatment were two of the least innocuous (in my opinion) which surprised me. Clearly to the trained eye they needed removal. I have since had an excision of one and due to have photo dynamic therapy treatment for the small red mark on my nose later this year. Without seeing Paul, this minor irritation would have been left and could possibly have created problems later in life. I advocate regular checks for anyone with moles and skin blemishes. The technology now is so impressive and it makes absolutely sense to take full advantage of Paul’s expertise.

I thought the team were helpful and efficient because they helped me to schedule my appointments around my working hours. They were always at hand to discuss any questions I had with a friendly and professional manor. Mr Banwell was amazing. He was totally honest and helped me decide which type of breast implant and procedure to have. We talked through my torrent of questions and concerns with ease. He asked me how I wanted my breast to look and I said I wanted them as natural as possible and that is exactly what I got. My new breasts have certainly made me feel more confident with ym body. I previously felt inadequate in the breast area and now I can?t stop smiling! I am so pleased with the outcome I only wish I?d done it sooner. The operation certainly wasn?t as scary as I thought it would be and I was looked after with the utmost care.

Mr Banwell’s care of my daughter was excellent – he is a great communicator with children. The hospital staff was very helpful and efficient. The surgery is very neat with minimal scarring – I’m sure it will make a big difference to her life as she grows up.
