Inverted nipple correction is a surgical procedure designed to address the discomfort and aesthetic concerns associated with inverted nipples. Dr. Artur Fahradyan offers inverted nipple correction in Thousand Oaks to restore a natural nipple projection, improving physical comfort and aesthetics.

Restore Natural
Nipple Projection

Inverted nipple correction is a surgical intervention to rectify a relatively common anatomical variation where the nipples are retracted or inverted rather than protruding outward. This can cause physical discomfort, hinder breastfeeding, and impact self-esteem. During the procedure, Dr. Fahradyan releases the tethering tissue that causes inversion, allowing the nipple to project naturally. Inverted nipple correction can be a life-changing solution, offering improved functionality and enhanced body image for those affected.

Inverted Nipple Correction FAQs

What causes inverted nipples?

Inverted nipples are often caused by shortened or constricted mammary ducts, which can pull the nipple inward. Sometimes, this condition is congenital, while in other cases, it can be due to factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, or breast infections.

How does inverted nipple correction work?

Dr. Fahradyan uses one of two techniques for inverted nipple correction in Thousand Oaks. The first involves releasing the tight, constricted ducts that tether the nipple, allowing it to extend outward. Alternatively, he may use a small skin graft to reinforce the nipple’s projection. Both methods restore the nipple’s normal positioning by addressing the structural issues at the root of the inversion.

Who is a suitable candidate for inverted nipple correction?

Any individual bothered by the appearance of inverted nipples or experiencing discomfort or difficulties related to them can be a candidate for this procedure. A consultation with Dr. Fahradyan can help determine your eligibility based on your circumstances.

Is inverted nipple correction painful?

During the procedure, patients typically receive local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Afterward, some soreness and mild discomfort are common, but these can be managed with prescribed pain medication.

How long does the recovery process take?

Recovery times vary from person to person, but most individuals can return to light activities within a few days. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for a few weeks. Complete healing and final results may take several months.

Will the results be permanent?

In most cases, inverted nipple correction in Thousand Oaks provides long-lasting results. However, factors like pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the appearance of the nipples over time.
