You will be an appropriate candidate if you have inverted nipples which you are wanting to correct.
You will have to be at least 18 years old to have this procedure.
If you are planning to have more children and breastfeed following inverted nipple correction, it is important to raise this with your surgeon during the consultation. This will allow the surgeon to use the correct method during surgery which will ensure the milk ducts are preserved.
Prior to your surgery, you will be given a local anaesthetic. This means you will still be awake during the procedure, but you will not feel any discomfort. You may feel slight discomfort following the procedure. You may wish to take pain medication to help with any symptoms.
You will be able to return home on the same day as your procedure once the effects of the local anaesthetic have worn off.
Compared to other breast and nipple procedures, inverted nipple correction has a relatively quick recovery period. You will experience some minor discomfort, bruising and swelling in the days after the procedure. You may wish to take medication to help alleviate this. You should avoid sleeping on your front, make sure you sleep on your side or preferably on your back.
You should avoid any vigorous exercise for at least three weeks.
