Nipple Correction Surgery Candidates

Candidates for surgery must be in ideal physical health and be non-smokers. Please note that the best way to determine if you are a candidate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. D’Agostino.

Patients interested in this surgery are:

  • Dissatisfied with the appearance of inverted nipples
  • Having trouble with hygiene
  • Experience self-image issues due to the condition of nipples

The Nipple Correction Surgery Procedure

During inverted nipple surgery, a small incision is made surrounding the areola to reduce visible scarring. The connective tissue stabilizing the nipple is severed, and the problem ducts are cut. Afterward, you receive a stitch around the area, and Dr. D’Agostino may inject dermal filler to prevent retraction.

Individuals who have undergone breast cancer may have gone through reconstructive surgeries after a mastectomy. After breast reconstruction, a patient may want to undergo nipple reconstruction. In this surgery, small incisions are made on the tip of the breast to mimic the appearance of a nipple.

Nipple Correction Surgery Recovery

After your procedure, you’ll experience swelling and bruising that typically subsides within several weeks. You’ll likely experience discomfort in your nipple and chest area. You will be instructed to limit your activity level for a few weeks while you recover. Dr. D’Agostino will provide detailed aftercare instructions. You can expect to see full results after the swelling subsides.

I knew two things were most important to me when looking for the right surgeon: the results and bedside manner. I feel so grateful to have hit the jackpot with Dr D who gave me the BEST of both of those. From the first moment I met her in the consult, I knew she was different from most doctors. She is incredibly kind, sweet, patient, and attentive. She made me feel cared for in a way that’s hard to put into words, but when you’re preparing for a big surgery, it’s the exact type of energy that puts you at total ease. Dr D not only answered all my questions, on multiple different occasions, leading up to surgery but she was extremely patient with them all. 

Dr.D is amazing and truly the best!

The results are better than I imagined and I am so grateful to have found Dr. D. I couldn’t have made a better choice then choosing Dr.D for my surgery. She is one of a kind!
