Nipple Surgery and Areolae Reduction

For many women, long, oversized, or inverted nipples can be embarrassing. Areolae reduction and nipple surgery at Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic presents a safe, efficient way to address the problem permanently.

Nipple Reduction Surgery

Nipple surgery also known as nipple reduction surgery or nipple correction surgery, most often simply reduces the size of the nipple, but it can also include reshaping of the nipple and the areolae (the area of skin around the nipple) to achieve better proportions. The surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction.

Inverted Nipple Surgery

Nipple inversion occurs when the nipple is pulled towards the inside of the breast instead of protruding normally. It can occur on one or both breasts and can be very embarrassing, particularly when wearing thin summer clothing or swimwear. It is the most common abnormality of the nipple. While inverted nipple surgery is a very straightforward procedure, after inverted nipple surgery breastfeeding is no longer possible.
