Nipple correction surgery is performed to reconstruct nipples that are too long, too large, are inverted or are bifid (split). These procedures are relatively simple, and therefore can most often be performed in the comfort of our office. Nipple corrections do not change the position of the nipple, but rather its shape or construction.
This type of surgery is purely cosmetic and driven by the desire to increase self-esteem. Most often performed on young women who feel embarrassed by the appearance of their nipples, nipple correction procedures come with few risks and invaluable rewards to your level of confidence.
