What is nipple inversion?

Some women have nipples that are stuck in or inverted. This may be permanent (your nipples won’t come out at all) or temporary (they may come out but go back in again). If this is a longstanding problem and unchanged then you may benefit from surgery to release the nipple and stop it from inverting. 

If nipple inversion is a new problem or is associated with any other breast symptoms, such as pain or a lump, then you should see your GP and ask for urgent referral to breast clinic for a check up. 

How are inverted nipples corrected?

There is a relatively straightforward procedure to release an inverted nipple, via a small cut under the nipple. We usually do this with local anaesthetic (awake) and it takes about 30 minutes per nipple. You can go home straight afterwards and return to your normal activities as soon as you wish.

Before treatment

First appointment

At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon. Your first appointment with your surgeon a lasts around half an hour and includes specialist assessment and discussion of your options for treatment so you understand what is involved and answer any questions you may have.

After your first appointment we will send you information about your treatment options and provide you with a fixed cost for your package of care. We will then give you time and space to decide what you would like to do. When you are ready our office team will help you book a date for your procedure.

Pre-assessment appointment

We correct nipples using local anaesthetic (awake). Occasionally women choose general anaesthetic (asleep) for this procedure. In this case, a few weeks before your procedure you will have an appointment with our nurses for a pre-operative medical. Our nurses will tell you everything you need to know for the day of your procedure, such as what time to stop eating and drinking, what time to come in to the hospital, and what to bring with you. If you have any questions about these details or anything else then please ask your nurse or feel free to email or call us.

Can I get finance?

The private hospitals we work with offer finance for your procedure. Please ask for further details at your consultation or click here for more information.

On the day of your procedure

Things to bring

Bring your phone and a book or magazine. There can be a bit of waiting around in hospital so bring things to keep you amused. Your partner, family member or a friend can stay with you while you wait.

Will I see my Consultant Plastic Surgeon on the day?

When you arrive at the hospital you will be greeted by the nurse who will get you ready for your procedure. At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and you will see them again on the day of your procedure to go through some final paperwork, including the hospital consent form, take photographs for your medical records and do your pre-operative markings. Then you are ready to go.

Who will give my anaesthetic?

Your surgeon will give the local anaesthetic the start of your procedure. If you choose general anaesthetic (asleep) and then you will have the opportunity to meet your Consultant Anaesthetist on the day as well. They will complete your pre-operative assessment to make sure you are safe and ready to go ahead. They will talk you through the anaesthetic and your recovery. We only work with experienced Consultant Anaesthetists, all of whom are also NHS Consultant Anaesthetists. General anaesthetic (asleep) can make people feel sick and surgery can be painful. We take great care to make your procedure as smooth as possible and do lots of things to help you wake up without feeling sore or sick. 

Your package of care

All of your aftercare is provided as part of your package of care, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. When you are ready to go home, the nurses will give you an appointment for your first check up a week later. Our nurses will arrange to see you again for as long as you need. You will see your Consultant Plastic Surgeon 3 months after surgery. If you have any problems in between appointments then don’t worry, just give us a call, speak to the nurses and come back to see us.

Dressings, tapes and massage

We use showerproof dressings after your breast surgery. After your dressings are removed you can massage the scar every day with Bio-oil (which you can find at Superdrug and supermarkets).

Can I shower after my procedure?

Yes – you can shower from day one. We encourage you to shower and wash your hair every day after surgery. The dressings we use are showerproof and are designed to get wet. After showering simply dab your dressings dry with a towel before putting your bra back on.

When can I return to normal activities and work?

Please gently return to all your normal activities straight after your procedure. Washing your hair is great physiotherapy for your arms and shoulders after breast surgery. Most of our clients are back to most things (including work) a week or two after breast surgery and are back to everything (Including the gym and exercise classes) in a month. You can drive as soon as you feel safe and able to do so. Most of our clients drive themselves back to their appointment one week after surgery and go back to work the week after.

When can I go on holiday?

This is a common question in clinic, particularly leading up to the summer. You could travel the following day if you need to. However it would be sensible to wait a couple of weeks. Most patients settle well and without any problems after breast surgery. However if you do have any issues then it is nice to be able to pop in and see us.

Sun protection and skin conditioning

Look after yourself in the sun after surgery as your skin can be a little more sensitive. Factor 50 suncream and lots of moisturising cream (or Bio-oil) are helpful.
