Nipple Correction

Inverted Nipple Correction

Nipple Correction Treatment in Ahmedabad, Gujarat

Nipple correction surgery is a surgical procedure that aims to allow the nipple to stick out from the areola (the dark skin around the nipple). A very simple surgery, nipple correction can increase your confidence in intimate moments, and make certain close-fitting styles of clothing more comfortable to wear.

It is a very common condition that occurs in around 1 out of 10 men and women. It is often due to the milk ducts in the nipple being too short. These short milk ducts pull the nipple in, therefore not allowing it to protrude out naturally. This happens gradually and is often present since puberty since this is when the majority of breast changes occur. It can be present in one or both nipples.

What can nipple correction surgery achieve?

An inverted nipple correction aims to correct the nipple so that it projects out in a natural way. To achieve this, your surgeon will either stretch the short milk ducts or cut them. This releases the tension that is pulling the nipple in, therefore allowing it to protrude out again.

Having a nipple correction can help boost self-esteem in patients, particularly when they are in intimate situations.
