Nipple & Areola Correction Plastic Surgeon NYC

The board certified Manhattan based plastic surgeons of the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC are top experts in the highly specialized field of cosmetic breast plastic surgery including nipple correction surgery. The best in class plastic surgeons at the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC are some of the most sought-after nipple correction surgeons in Manhattan, NYC and around the world. 

Nipple correction surgery corrects problems associated with enlarged, asymmetrical, protruding, or inverted nipples and can be seen in both men and women.

Inverted Nipple Repair Surgery

Women who are born with nipples lying flatly along the breast or else recessed within the areola itself are often embarrassed by the condition. Inverted Nipple Repair Surgery is a simple procedure that produces excellent, long-lasting results and fully restores the appropriate amount of nipple projection from the breasts.

Inverted nipples are the most common nipple correction surgery. Inverted nipples are the result of an imbalance in muscle traction, where the strength of the outward muscle is weaker than the inward, which can be longer or have a stronger pull, causing the nipple to remain retracted.

Nipple Reduction Surgery

Due to reasons such as breastfeeding, genetics, or aging, many women develop excessively large nipples that tend to flop or droop down over the areola. As a result, many women who are considering breast augmentation with breast implants have raised these concerns about their nipples. The correction for this condition involves surgically recessing the nipple into the areola by trimming redundant skin around the nipple. This procedure not only fully restores an appropriate nipple projection from the breasts but also helps instill confidence for women who have long experienced embarrassment by the condition. Nipple reduction surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with little downtime – most people can return to work and resume normal routine within a few days. Next day or same day Nipple Reduction Surgery can be done in conjunction with other Breast Surgeries.

Nipple Enlargement Surgery

Nipple enlargement surgery is performed on women who have nipples that are normal in projection and shape, but who want them to be larger in circumference. There are several surgical techniques to enlarge nipples, usually incorporating tissue grafts. There is minimal risk of scarring. In most cases, nipple and lactation functionality are unlikely to be affected since neither the nerves nor the ducts within the nipple are severed.

Areola Reduction Surgery

Areola reduction surgery can help if you are unhappy with either the size or shape of your areolas (the brown or pink area around the nipple). The procedure is quick, simple, and can be performed on both men and women.

Areola reduction surgery is performed by removing a circular area of the outer brown area of the areola. The skin surrounding this is then brought inwards in a purse-string fashion to surround the areola. Absorbable stitches inside the areola are used to reduce the diameter and, in most cases, surgeons at the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC will use a permanent stitch placed deeply in the tissues to prevent widening of the areola occurring following surgery.
