Oversized nipples can easily be reduced, although some of the milk ducts are then lost. It is imperative to inform the surgeon during the initial consultation if you wish to breastfeed after surgery. In this case, he will opt for another procedure which does not reduce the nipple as much thus preserving the milk ducts.
There are different forms of inverted nipples. Some nipples are malformed, a phenomenon noticeable at puberty. This form is the most difficult to treat since it is necessary to cut the milk ducts. The milk ducts are too short and pull the nipples inwards. Breastfeeding is no longer possible after this intervention. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetisia and often leaves a scab for a few weeks.
A normal nipple can sometimes invaginate. This can easily be solved by means of a small ring placed under the skin preventing repetition, a procedure which is performed under local anaesthesia, leaving no scar.
The success rate of nipple correction is not 100%. Some invaginate again after the operation in which case it is necessary for a nipple implant to be made by making a small incision on the edge of the areola. This operation is only performed as a last resort since it also increases the risk of infection and rejection.
It is simple to reduce the size of areola, leaving only a small scar. An areola has an average diameter of 4.5 cm. This procedure also takes place under local anaesthesia, leaving the mammary gland and the milk ducts intact.
