Inverted Nipples Correction Day of Procedure
Inverted nipple corrected is performed as day case procedure and you will be able to return home shortly after.
Inverted nipple procedures are performed under local anaesthetic but if being performed in combination with another procedure such as a breast augmentation then general anaesthetic will be used.
There are different techniques to inverted nipple correction depending on the severity of the inversion. The most common way is that the surgeon will make an incision at the base of the nipple and the ducts are then separated leaving the nipple to be able to sit back in its new position.
