What is Nipple Correction?
Nipple correction surgery is a procedure 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 beautiful 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 home after your procedure. Dr. Sofonio can answer any questions and tell you more about the procedure during your private consultation.
What is the 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 hours, depending on what is needed in your case. A few small incisions are placed to gain access to the area and then do what is necessary to correct any nipple issues.
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 size. For overly large areolas, the incision is placed around the areolas, and the size of the areolas is meticulously reduced.

Your Recovery After Nipple Correction Surgery: What to Expect
Following your procedure, your nipples will be covered with a protective dressing. There will likely be some swelling and bruising, and you’ll want to keep the area covered as directed. In most cases, you will be able to return home on the day of your surgery with no need for an overnight stay in the hospital.
You will have a set of aftercare instructions to follow. As long as you don’t have a physically strenuous job, you may be able to return to work the following 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. You will have several follow-up appointments so Dr. Sofonio can ensure your recovery is proceeding well.

Our Other Breast 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:
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.
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.
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.
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 increase or reduce size, replace older implants, correct the problem of implants out of place, or capsular contracture.
