Aesthetic problems and psychological atrophy

It is not just pretty breasts; it is also functional improvement.

  • 01 Inverted Nipple

    Inverted nipples do not protrude outside mostly due to the natural causes, usually due to a lack of root fibrous nipple material beneath the nipple which does not support the nipple in the normal level. The lacteal duct (tubes with breast milk) is short, allowing the nipples to be inverted under a pull-in force.

    If the depth of the retraction is not severe, then the method of preserving the lacteal duct is relatively simple and rarely reoccurring.

  • Lacteal Duct Non-preservation Method

    As a method of surgery conducted in severe degree of indentation, the lacteal duct itself is short and the pulling force is strong inside, the surrounding nipple material is used to inculcate the nipple during the operation so that the nipple does not fall back in.
    Breastfeeding is impossible after the surgery, but it is a surefire way to prevent a recurrence.

  • Lacteal Duct Preservation Method

    Depending on the degree of nipple retraction, if you wish to breastfeed later on, we recommend that you get a simple operation to draw the inverted nipple out through a minimum incision of about 3mm below the nipple.

  • 02 Nipple Reduction

    It can be corrected by a relatively simple operation, mainly by using a method of suturing after cutting out excessive nipple nipple material.

    If your nipples grow bigger and get smaller after childbirth, you generally need this procedure. Even after surgery, you can still breastfeed. We can adjust the nipple size that suits your needs, guaranteeing great satisfaction with a relatively simple procedure.
