What Is Nipple Correction Surgery?
Nipple correction surgery is a procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the nipples. If you are unhappy with the look of your nipples, this corrective surgery may be the best way to help you achieve the breasts you desire. This simple, outpatient procedure can be used to correct enlarged, small, protruding, or inverted nipples. You will not have to stay overnight in the hospital and can return immediately to your Rancho Mirage or Palm Springs, CA home. Our doctor can answer any questions and tell you more about the procedure during your consultation.
The Nipple Correction Procedure
The surgical process used to correct the appearance of nipples is very simple and quick. This procedure can often be completed in under an hour but may take up to two depending on what is being addressed. The surgeon will only need to make a few small incisions to gain access to the area and then do what is necessary to correct the appearance of the nipple. For inverted nipples, this may mean pulling and lifting the nipple from the breast and suturing it in its new position. For protruding nipples, the procedure will include trimming the excess skin to minimize its overall size. Depending on what results you want to achieve, your doctor will go over the specifics of your procedure before beginning.
Post-Care Treatment following Nipple Correction
Following your procedure, the doctor will cover the treatment area with a protective dressing. There will likely be some swelling and bruising, and you’ll want to keep the area covered as directed by your doctor. In most cases, you will be able to return home on the day of your surgery and will not have to stay overnight in the hospital. Your doctor will send you home with instructions on when you can return to certain activities. As long as you don’t have a physically strenuous job, you may be able to return as soon as the next day. However, some people may need to take time off work. Your doctor will also tell you when you can resume exercising, showering, and bathing as you normally would. It’s also essential that you keep your follow-up appointments with your doctor.
The Results of Nipple Correction Surgery
When you undergo nipple correction surgery, you can expect noticeable results immediately following the procedure.

Our Other Brace Enhancement Procedures
In addition to nipple correction surgery, our skilled surgeon can also complete other breast enhancement surgeries. All of our procedures are designed to enhance the appearance of the breasts, whether that’s altering their size or placement or correcting the results of previous breast surgery. If you want to do more to enhance your breasts’ appearance, consider undergoing one of our other treatments in addition to nipple correction. We offer the following procedures:
- Breast Lift: As women age, it is not uncommon for their breasts to lose the fullness and perkiness they had in their youth. A breast lift is a procedure used to lift and firm sagging breasts. Our doctor can perform this procedure at our Rancho Mirage, CA location.
- Breast Reduction: Some women are genetically more likely to have larger breasts, leading to discomfort as the extra weight can cause back, neck, or shoulder pain. A breast reduction can help to prevent this by reducing the size of the breasts. This will not only help to minimize any discomfort but will also enhance the appearance of the breasts.
- Breast Augmentation: A breast augmentation procedure is a surgery that uses implants to increase the size of the breasts or even out breasts of different sizes. There are numerous types of implants you can choose from, and you’ll have your choice of the size and shape of implants used to create your desired results.
- Breast Correction: Unforeseen complications can sometimes arise from previous breast surgeries, requiring the need for corrective surgery. We can complete breast correction when previous implants deflate, you want to further increase the size, or if implants have shifted out of place.
