Breasts are the part of the body that expresses the femininity of women. The breast is made of the areola (dark skin around the nipple) and the nipple at its center.

From an aesthetic point of view, the harmony of the breasts can be affected by an inverted nipple or a disproportionate size of the areola compared to the areola or entire breast.

 

Dr. Cordoba, plastic surgeon, can correct these defects by using the latest surgical procedures and modern technology.

The inverted nipple is a congenital deformity. It is caused by the short milk ducts. Because of their density and strength, these ducts prevent the nipples from being everted.

Inverted nipples do not affect their physiological functions, but can alter their aesthetic appearance.

During inverted nipple surgery, the incisions are placed at the base of the nipple. Then, the adhesions that cause the inversion of the nipple are cut. In severe cases of inverted nipples, all of the lactiferous ducts are cut and breastfeeding is not possible.

 

There is also surgery to reduce the nipples if they are too prominent. Prominent nipples can cause discomfort or visibility through your clothes.

Another situation that may be of concern is the enlargement of the areola when its size is too large compared to the breast. This imperfection can be corrected by reducing the size of the areola. During this surgery, incisions are made around the areola. The excess areola is removed to reduce its size. The areola is then repositioned and sutured.

 

Alternative Treatments

One option would be not to undergo inverted nipples surgery, nipples reduction or areola reduction surgery.
