consequently a lack of self-confidence, but often a medical problem. In
these situations, it is almost impossible to breastfeed, and quite often can
come to a standstill of secretions, which can result in infection. Hence,
the nipple surgery is not only performed in order to satisfy the aesthetic
flaws of patients, but it is also performed for medical justified reasons.
However, too large nipples, or nipples that after extensive surgery are
partially or completely missing may again be reconstructed.
Depending on the nipple changes, shape and position, there are a variety of
techniques and approaches that can be used for nipple correction. The most
common applied techniques are used in order to preserve maximum of mammary
gland ducts, and thus the patientís ability to breastfeed. The techniques
that do not preserve tubules can also be applied, but they are more reserved
for patients who are not planning more children.
Duration and Anesthesia:
The nipple surgeries are outpatient
procedures and they are performed under local anesthesia. The duration
of the procedure varies from 30 minutes to an hour.
