With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
If your nipples are a source of insecurity, nipple correction surgery is a simple procedure that has amazing results. Treatment can reduce overly projecting or correct inverted nipples as well as oversized areolas. At Harley Street Skin you’re taken good care of and left with results that successfully dispel old anxieties.
There are various forms of corrective nipple surgery, and these generally include - but are not limited to - Nipple Inversion, Nipple Reduction, and Areola Reduction. Each of these may be performed either in isolation, or as part of a more complex procedure involving further breast augmentation.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
While there is rarely a medical necessity to undergo nipple correction surgery, the procedure is often found to ease (and sometimes eradicate) self-consciousness regarding the size, shape or visibility of the nipples or areola.
For example, if nipples are extremely pronounced or projecting, patients (both male and female) may find that they are visible through clothes or are perhaps be a source of embarrassment during moments of intimacy. If this is the case, treatment may be geared at reducing the protrusion of the nipples by cutting away a small fraction of the tissue responsible for this. This type of treatment may very well be conducted using only local anaesthesia, and patients are free to return to normality almost immediately.
Your body will always influence your confidence levels, but when that influence is negative we aim to step in, and fix whatever is damaging your mind-set and outlook. Despite nipples being a relatively small part of the body, anything you deem as an imperfection in yourself can be a source of psychological distress.
Nipple correction is the perfect solution for those with concerns for both size and shape. In addition to more common aesthetic reasons, nipple correction can also be a great option for those suffering discomfort from inverted nipples or, in some cases, those who find that their ability to breastfeed has been impacted.
Treatment may involve fashioning a new nipple from soft tissue taken from elsewhere on the body, or simply cutting away from where there appears to be excess. Either way, for inverted, protruding or out of proportion nipples that have been a source of embarrassment long-term, corrective surgery can provide fanastic peace of mind.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
The procedure is simple and normally performed under local anaesthetic. In the case of inverted nipples, small incisions are made at the base of the nipple in order to allow access to the milk ducts that are pulling the nipple inwards. Then, depending on the severity of the inversion, the milk ducts are either stretched or cut to pull the nipple forward.
A protruding nipple, on the other hand, is normally treated by trimming the skin and bulk of the nipple to reduce its overall size. Both height and width of the nipple can be diminished while still preserving sensation.
Any other nipple correction treatments can be discussed at a consultation with a Harley Street practitioner.
Depending on what you need, nipple correction will either bring forward inverted nipples or reduce the size of those that are overly protruding. Following a consultation and discussion, nipples are reshaped into the desired form, so that you are left with exactly what you had in mind.
Nipple correction is permanent.
It should be noted, however, that factors such as weight gain and pregnancy can alter completed results longer-term.
Nipple surgery can be performed in a multitude of ways depending on the desired result, however most procedures can be completed in between one and two hours.
For women undergoing inverted nipple correction surgery, the milk ducts are normally divided during the procedure which can, on occaision, interfere with the ability to breastfeed. It is recommended that you discuss breastfeeding with your practitioner at your consultation to assess and discuss the risks of this prior to treatment.
During recovery stages, patients may experience bruising or swelling however 'over the counter' pain medication, such as Paracetomal, can be used to manage this. After surgery, some patients do also experience some changes to nipple sensation, however, once healed, most patients find that everything returns to normal relatively quickly.
Nipple correction is a relatively simple procedure and recovery will usually take around a week or so. Your doctor may advise against wearing padded bras or tight-fitting clothes during this time, or for up to two weeks after surgery depending on the specifics of your treatment.
Many patients feel comfortable returning to more sedentary roles after a few days of surgery, however it is advised that you avoid doing anything strenuous for about a week following the procedure. This may mean that roles which are particularly demanding require a little more downtime than others. If you are concerned about this, please feel free to discuss this with your practitioner at consultation as they should be able to give you a more accurate recovery timeline based on your specific case.
