Inverted Nipple Repair
Inverted nipples are quite common and can be corrected using minimal-scar treatments that can restore harmony to the nipple-areolar complex. In most cases, Drs. Papazian and Karamanoukian can identify crucial fibers that are tethering the nascent nipple, thereby causing the nipple to be inverted. The surgical treatment involves identfication of these nipple fibers and non-surgical release or attenuation of the bands.
Inverted nipple repair can be performed under anesthesia or under local anesthesia. Immediate results are seen as the release of nipple fibers can cause a drastic improvement in nipple projection and size.
