Inverted Nipple and Areolar Reduction in Dubai

An Overview:

Inverted nipples refer to those that retract inwards rather than protrude outwards, and areolae are the dark areas that surrounds them. Inverted nipples or irregular areolas don’t cause any medical complications, except for some difficulty in breastfeeding. However, in recent years, there has been an increasing number of patients who opt for inverted nipple and areolar reduction surgery in Dubai because they would like to improve their appearance.

What are the causes of inverted nipples?

An inverted nipple is generally a congenital condition that is caused when breast tissues have adhered tightly to the base of the nipple. However, when it occurs in later years, it may be due to an underlying disease- such as breast cancer. If this is the case, you should consult a doctor without delay. 

The other causes of the inverted nipple are as follows:

Inverted nipple surgery

  • Inverted nipple surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under local anaesthesia and takes around an hour. 
  • To perform this, the plastic surgeon first makes an incision under your nipple to detach it from the underlying connective tissue. 
  • Next, a ring of skin from the base of the nipple is removed, and the fibres that pull the nipple inward are divided and spread. 
  • The new nipple that faces outwards now is returned to its natural position. To hold to the nipple in this desired position, dissolving stitches are used.

Areolar reduction surgery

  • The areola reduction surgery is a simple and short procedure performed under local anaesthesia. 
  • To perform this surgery, the doctor makes a circular incision along the outer, darker area of the areola and removes some amount of tissue. 
  • Next, the skin is brought inwards in a purse-string fashion to surround the areola. 
  • This new areola is secured with a permanent suture and closes the incision site with dissolvable sutures.

Post-op recovery

  • Having an inverted nipple and areolar surgery won’t affect your daily activities significantly, but you should have someone to take care of you during the initial recovery period. 
  • Avoid strenuous activities and exercises for at least three weeks.
  • It may take 10-15 days before the swelling and bruising of your breasts go away. As the swelling subsides, the sensations of numbing and tingling will also disappear. Also, know that one breast may heal faster than the other and that this is completely natural.
  • Wear a surgical bra for a few weeks.
  • Stay in touch with your doctor.
