Inverted Nipple Correction Consultations: What Are Your Options?

What Are Inverted Nipples?

Inverted Nipples are caused by shortening of the milk ducts (mammary ducts) which restricts the milk glands to the nipple. The reason for this shortening of the milk ducts is uncertain in many cases, but the result is that the nipple turns inwards and is unable to evert naturally. The inversion varies and is graded on a system from 1-3 according to severity and ease of everting.

Did You Know There Are 3 Types of Inverted Nipple Correction Consultation?

1) Inverted nipple correction consultation in person

Wherever possible, it is always far better to come into clinic and have your consultation in person with a reputable surgeon. This allows you to discuss your concerns about your inverted nipples and the surgeon to carefully examine the area physically. This gives the best possible opportunity to assess the situation and give you the fullest explanation as to the best treatment for you.

At your inverted nipple correction consultation you will also be given further information about inverted nipple correction which will help enable you to make an informed decision whether to go ahead with the procedure.

2) Inverted nipple correction consultation and surgery on the same day

If you are travelling from a long way away or a have a busy work schedule, you may find it more convenient to have a consultation and then – if you are 100% certain you want to proceed with your inverted nipple correction surgery – have the procedure on the same day.

This is more convenient for some patients, but it is vitally important that you have first fully researched the procedure and understood what it involves as fully as possible before your consultation.

At Aurora Clinics you can listen to our detailed free CD on inverted nipple correction and look at other information on our website which includes inverted nipple correction video testimonials from other patients who have undergone this procedure themselves.

3) Inverted nipple correction consultation remotely by telephone

Many patients who are considering inverted nipple correction surgery are very shy about their conditions. They may also live a significant distance from their preferred clinic (inverted nipple correction is not widely offered by top surgeons) and thus find it inconvenient to come for a consultation in person.

In exceptional cases, you may be able to ask for the initial consultation stages via telephone or email exchange if this is more convenient for you.

If you are having consultation via this method, it is important for your surgeon to see high resolution photographs of your nipples from different angles so that they can assess the appearance of them before consultation. They can then advise you as to the grade of your nipple inversion and recommend the best treatment for you.

Many people find this a good option as you can have an opinion about the best treatment for your inverted nipples without having to attend an appointment with us. If your surgeon agrees that your nipples are suitable for inverted nipple correction surgery and you decide to go ahead, you can then discuss possible dates for the procedure at your telephone consultation.

Overall surgeons do usually prefer it if you can come to see us in person to allow us to assess your nipples fully, and give you the best possible advice before scheduling any possible surgery at a later date.

However surgeons do understand that, for a number of reasons, it is sometimes impossible for patients to come and see us on two separate occasions and will do our best to accommodate you via a remote consultation or by combining the consultation and procedure.
