Inverted Nipple Correction
Dr. Piccard-Ami gave me thorough information, as well as complete follow-up care. I, being a gastric-bypass patient, prior to coming to see him, as well as botched procedures prior, was relieved by my results following reconstructive breast augmentation and a tummy tuck to remove scarring from previous intestinal exploratory surgery and twice botched breast augmentation. I was relieved to find a competent and professional who has honed his craft. Dr. Piccard-Ami's work was cut out for him, as I was a difficult case, he confidently and skillfully restored my self confidence. My gratitude thus far is immesurable. You're the best doc, thank you so much! When, I have more money.... my thighs are next!!!

Absolutely wonderful. I received nothing but the best of care not only from Dr. Picard-Ami but from his whole staff. I am totally happy with the results and all the care and attention I received before, during and after the surgery.

The results I obtained with Dr. Sterman are nothing short of stunning! From the initial consultation to the numerous follow-ups afterward, Dr. Sterman and his staff are professional, courteous, and do everything possible to ensure a positive experience while in Brazil. Despite traveling alone, I always felt I had the support and assistance I needed from start to finish (Dr. Sterman provides his personal cell and home phone--a gesture you’ll be hard pressed to find in the US). And, as a healthcare professional, I thoroughly reviewed all the options (both in the US and abroad), but did not find anyone who could match the expertise or years of experience of Dr. Sternman. He is, without question, a world class surgeon. Moreover, the hospital where I had the operation was superb, the nurses: attentive, and the general ambiance: clean and pleasant. I had post-op consultations with Dr. Sterman every two days for two weeks to ensure proper healing. And when each consultation is accompanied with a relaxing facial massage set amid chic, white decor, one quickly realizes that having plastic surgery with Dr. Sterman is much more than some quick nip/tuck, it’s a holistic approach to ensure the best results. As for the results, I have yet to go to a restaurant, the beach, or the mall without someone asking for my number. Before the surgery, that NEVER happened! I could not be more pleased with the results! If you’re looking for the best, then you’ve arrived... -TE, USA

What is Inverted Nipple Correction?

The objective of the Inverted Nipple (inverted nipple repair or nipple inversion surgery) is a procedure used to correct inverted nipples so that they protrude out rather than in. Areola reduction, breast reduction, or breast lift surgery may be accompanied by this procedure.


A Good Candidate for Inverted Nipple Correction

Good Candidates for Inverted Nipple Correction are women with inverted nipples due to congenital deformities, breast feeding, or prolonged use of medication. Patients that are self-conscious or unhappy with the appearance of the nipple are good candidates for this “corrective” aesthetic surgery. The minimum age requirement for this procedure is 18 years of age.


Inverted Nipple Correction Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will explain and discuss with you the best method to help you achieve your desired results. After undergoing general anesthesia, incisions are made just under the nipple on the areola. The nipple is gently lifted, but remains attached to the areola to preserve sensation and future ability to breast feed. A suture is placed around the outer lining of the nipple, and the “purse-string” technique is employed.


The size of the suture depends on the degree of nipple inversion. After the procedure, the nipple is supported with a sombrero splint and sutures for one week. Scarring is barely visible due to the circular direction in which the sutures are placed around the nipple. This procedure is outpatient, which means that the patient can return home the same day that the surgery is performed.


Average Duration Inverted Nipple Correction: 1-2 hours
