There are a range of nipple issues that occur in both men and women, some medical and some cosmetic, though almost all problems with your nipples are usually harmless. However we understand how inverted nipples, enlarged or misshapen nipples or a large areola (the darker skin around the nipple) can make certain people feel self-conscious.
For many women the shape, size and position of their nipples are as important as the overall look and size of their breasts. Your nipples change during your lifetime this may be during puberty, during or after breastfeeding, or they simply change shape, size and colour as your age. If you are concerned about the appearance of your nipples, if you have inverted nipples that are uncomfortable then modern day nipple surgery can help address these concerns. In many cases this surgery can be offered as a “see and treat” procedure with the surgery being done directly after consultation with your surgeon in a one stop visit.
For most nipple issues such as inverted nipples, enlarged or misshapen areola, accessory nipples, etc. the best and most effective treatment is a minor surgery under local anaesthetic to correct the specific problem.
These procedures are generally simple and can be done within an hour under a local anaesthetic and in most cases they can be done in a single see and treat visit if that suits the patient. During your consultation the surgeon will advise on what the surgery will involve for your specific condition.
