Nipple Surgery?

For ideal breasts, the shape of the breast, not only the size, the nipple is very important. If the nipple is sunk or extremely big, you cannot obtain an ideal breast line. Nipple surgery at the breast surgery Clinic Korea allows us to reshape and resize the nipple, and not only the beauty preservation, the restoration of breastfeeding capability is also available.

For who?

If infection appears because of a nipple retraction

If you want to restore the breast feeding capability

If you want to reduce the size of the nipple for the beauty preservation

1. Nipple

01. Nipple retraction in Breast Surgery Clinic Korea?

Sunk nipples mean that the nipples are not erect and sometimes flat, and/or sunk inside the breasts. There can also be technical reasons under having this surgery.

02. The need of nipple retraction surgery

  • Sanitation : The 15-18 nipple tissues supply the breast milk, and retracted nipples can cause infection or bad odor because of the stacked bodily waste.
  • Secondary infection prevention : If the secretion is stuck in the breast feeding line the bacterium that are forming can bring disability to breastfeed.
  • Beauty : You might carry a lack of confidence or lower the sexual appeal if your nipples look bad.
  • Breastfeed : A normal breastfeeding is not available if the retraction is extreme.

Self checkup

You will consult with the experts, but this is how you grade from grade 1 to 3.

  • Grade 1 : The retracted nipples are easily pulled by the hand and it is often normal without the pulling
  • Grade 2 : If the pulling is not as easy as the grade 1 and it retracts back in after pulling
  • Grade 3 : If they’re heavily retracted and it is not easy to pull it back by hand.

If the nipple is fixed by massage or calibration instrument, you might not need this surgery, but if this happens for many months, you might want to consider the surgery.

If the nipple size is too big compared to the breast size or its way too erect, we operate this surgery. There are premature reasons behind this, but it is often affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. It does not look good in the beauty standards but it can cause problems while breastfeeding the baby so we resize it to a balanced state.
