NIPPLE REPAIR IN SCOTTSDALE
Inversion occurs because of several factors. In some women it is a genetic condition, while others have breasts that are damaged due to breastfeeding, infection or trauma. The condition occurs when the ducts underneath the nipples shorten, pulling the nipple inward into the breast.
Dr. Shaw’s surgical correction involves very little downtime and can be performed under local anesthetic or as part of a cosmetic breast augmentation or lift. He simply makes very small incisions at the base of the nipple, releasing the ducts that are pulling the nipples down. Dr. Shaw also places a permanent internal suture around the base of the nipple keeping it in the "out" position preventing recurrence. This simple procedure allows the nipples to return to a natural position, without visible scarring or long recovery periods.
The risks to this procedure are minimal but it can interfere with future breastfeeding and some women experience decreased sensation. Recurrence may occur in some instances. Otherwise, the results typically remain permanently, freeing the woman from the uncomfortable feelings about her body associated with this condition.
