Nipple inversion can be treated surgically, but this may risk developing permanent nipple numbness and the inability to breastfeed. A non-surgical home-use device; the Advent Niplette can correct inverted nipples without these risks. Dr. Colony is here to assist you with this procedure, call today.
Types of Nipple Surgery
Nipple Inversion issues often occur during one’s period of growth and development. Other instances where nipple inversion may occur is from scarring due to breastfeeding or even previous breast procedures. This type of nipple correction can be done in conjunction with a breast lift and augmentations.
If you are looking to achieve a more enlarged or erect nipple, this can be done either with the use of cartilage, fat graft, or possibly injectable fillers.
If you feel that your nipples are too large or possibly droop at a position that is unsatisfactory, Dr. Colony may be able to excise the part of the nipple that you would like removed. This can be done under local anesthesia and is recommended to those that are done with or do not plan to breastfeed in the future.
Areola reductions may be desired by a patient because of a variety of breast conditions and anatomies. Most often this can be experienced in women with very large breasts and breasts that have endured breastfeeding. In general, it is recommended to include this procedure with a breast lift or augmentation after bearing children.
Male Nipple Reduction
Male nipple reduction can be done the same way it is done for a female; however, if there is any unwanted volume attributing to the protrusion your doctor may recommend that you have a procedure to address gynecomastia as well.
Dr. Colony and his staff are amazing. I have called at least 7 times with questions for them (I am getting surgery in May) and they have been so patient, informative, and kind to me. The best part is that they take health and safety very seriously. They care about the patient and care about the work they do and it shows. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in plastic surgery.
I am beyond thrilled with my choice of a plastic surgeon. Dr. Colony is not only incredibly smart and he's got the bedside manner going for him which is quite hard to find in surgeons. I have not only recommended Colony to many friends, but I've actually realized a couple of friends had gone to him before without me realizing.
Dr. Colony did AMAZING work!!!! I could NOT be happier with my results. I am 6wks post op breast augmentation and I am completely 150% satisfied. I spent 2hrs asking questions in my consultation. He answered every single one of them. The procedure went perfectly and great CRNA and staffing. Great pre/post-op packet given before surgery. Am sooooo pleased with my results!! Couldn't be happier!! Would recommend to everyone, tell everyone about Dr. Colony!!
