Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

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
