Surgical Techniques for Nipple Surgery

The different surgical techniques for Nipple Surgery include:

Nipple Reduction

This procedure is performed to reduce the size or prominence of the nipple by removing excess tissue and reshaping it to achieve the desired size and proportion.

Nipple Augmentation

Also known as Nipple Enlargement or Nipple Enhancement, this technique involves adding volume and projection to the nipple using various methods such as tissue grafting, dermal fillers, or fat transfer.

Nipple Reconstruction

This technique is utilized in cases where the nipple has been lost or damaged due to trauma, mastectomy, or other medical conditions. It involves recreating a new nipple using local tissue.

Inverted Nipple Correction

Inverted Nipples occur when the nipple is retracted or pulled inward instead of protruding outward. This technique involves releasing the tethering tissues and reshaping the nipple to correct the inversion and achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Areola Reduction

Although not specifically a Nipple Surgery technique, it is often performed in conjunction with nipple procedures. Areola Reduction involves reducing the size of the pigmented area surrounding the nipple.

Where are the Incisions and Scars for Nipple surgery?

The location of incisions and resulting scars for Nipple Surgery depends on the specific technique being performed. In general, incisions for Nipple Surgery are strategically placed around the nipple-areolar complex or along natural creases and contours to minimize the visibility of scars.
