Inverted Nipple

BE MORE CONFIDENT WITH YOUR APPEARANCE.

Inverted nipples are a common problem. Some patients have always had this problem, some may develop it following surgery, and some may find that it occurs spontaneously.

The former two are generally non-concerning. Correction typically involves a small procedure, often performed under local anaesthetic, that releases the tethering tissue (short ducts or scar) and creates a more natural projecting nipple. The latter case however needs to be examined by a doctor to rule out anything more concerning such as breast cancer. If you have developed spontaneous nipple inversion or other changes, make sure to see your doctor for further investigation.

Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

In general, candidates for an inverted nipple correction procedure are in good health and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

 

 

N

dislike current shape and size of inverted nipple

N

desire to increase confidence in appearance when being intimate

N

want to change shape of silhouette in a bikini

N

improve breast contour and appearance in form-fitting clothing

What is the recovery time?

Depending on the extent of the inversion, different techniques may be used, including non-surgical options. In general, the recovery is fairly straight forward and minimal. You may need to wear some foam or other donut type dressing to prevent pressure on your nipple for six weeks while it heals in its everted position. There may be some external sutures that need removal at 1 week, but otherwise the sutures are all resorbable.

During your private consultation, Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical options, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, discuss what to expect pre and post surgery, and your estimated recovery time. You will need to wear a dressing afterwards that prevents pressure on the nipple while it heals. Sutures are usually removed at 1 week.

Inverted nipples: How common are they?

An area of plastic surgery that I sub-specialize in is surgery of the breast. I love sculpting and creating a beautiful and natural looking breast. I do so with breast implants, with fat transfer and even by moving tissue from one area to another There is no perfect surgery, and everyone needs something tailored to their own needs and goals. Some patients would look great with a small breast implant that has a teardrop shape; while others may want something larger and fuller at the top of the breast.

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results! Dr. Shortt and his staff are wonderful and very talented. I definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns, and he lets you know what’s possible and what isn’t – he will never do something that will make you look fake or “done.” Dr. Shortt likes to say that he will make you into a better version of yourself, not someone else. He goes above and beyond to achieve your goals and truly cares about his patients.

I had a septorhinoplasty done to correct my breathing and the appearance of my nose. I have always been insecure about the size and shape of my nose – I had a bit of a bulbous tip and a prominent dorsal hump. I am so thrilled with the results of my surgery! In addition to breathing better, I am also feeling a lot more confident. I used to freak out if anyone took a photo of me from the side, but now I actually encourage it!

The support staff at Briarwood are wonderful, too. They make the experience comfortable and easy.

I am extremely happy that I finally took this step

I just want to say Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased! The care I received prior to, during, and after my surgery has been great. Dr. Shortt and the stuff at Briarwood cosmetic surgical centre have been very thorough and detail oriented when tending to my needs, concerns and questions. I am extremely happy that I finally took this step and LOVE my results. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and am glad I chose Dr. Shortt for my surgery.

Dr Shortt did an awesome job

I recently had a breast reduction and am so happy with the final result – Dr Shortt did an awesome job!

Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.

Best Choice I Made!

The stretch marks, loose skin and a deformed belly button from my twin pregnancy really affected my self confidence. Dr. Shortt helped me get that “old me” feeling back! He is patient, professional and truly cares for you during the recovery process. I always felt that Dr. Shortt and his team were there when I needed questions answered. Before I went for my surgery, I had no idea how important the weeks and months after would be. Now, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Dr. Shortt to be my doctor. He also makes sure that you know what to expect and that made the journey so much easier for me. Best choice I made! I finally feel like myself again.

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt
