What is nipple correction?

With the breast and the most harmonious nipples, both functional and aesthetical!

A normal nipple is not protruding and is flat or buried in the breast.
It is one of the inconveniences of many women who have in three of 100.
The nipple tissues are short or short and the nipple is caught in the papillary ducts. In severe cases, the nipple is covered with white secretions, smells, inflammation and papillitis occur. If the nipple is inverted, many surgeries are performed to restore the function of feeding as well as for cosmetic purposes.

Recommended to

Case 01

If the nipple is inverted and you want to improve it aesthetically.

Case 02

If there is a problem with the feeding function after giving birth.

Case 03

Injury to the papilla with inflammatory disease.

Causes of Inverted nipple

When the nipple and the supporting tissue are lacking and buried inside.
If the duct below the nipple is short and pulls the nipple inward
If you are born naturally due to genetic influences

Types of Inverted nipple

Type A
If the nipple is occasionally inverted.
Type B
Pulling on the nipple can be possible but not retained.
Type C
If you cannot pull the nipple easily.

Type A is a natural healing case, which can be calibrated using instruments such as massage or pumping, and can be cured naturally during lactation. In case of B or C type, do not protrude to the irritation, and it is recommended to receive correction surgery to prevent diseases such as inflammation for breastfeeding.

Purpose of Inverted Nipple Correction

Around 15-18 mastoid tissues are required to be discharged to the outside in total in the process of milk secretion in the nipple. If the nipple is inverted, the secretion is not smoothly discharged, and it may accumulate as residue, resulting in odor or inflammation.
Prevention of Secondary Infection
If the infection is infected by the bacteria that resides in the ducts and when the secretions are clogged, the inflammation will not be discharged to the outside and it will take longer to heal. In some cases, the mammary line may be damaged, melted or not breastfed.
As for the aesthetic view, the shape of the nipple can be out of the normal category, which can lead to loss of sexual attractiveness, which can reduce confidence.
Normal feeding may not be possible if the nipple is deeply inverted.
