Nipple Repair

Nipple RepairWhile much attention is given to the size or shape of the breast itself, the truth is that the appearance of the nipple can have just as much to do with the overall appearance of your breasts. Nipples that are too large, too small or irregularly shaped can lead to just as many feelings of self-consciousness as concerns over your cup size or breast shape. Nipple repair can ensure a centered, even look to the nipples and areolae for a beautiful outcome.

One of the best breast surgeons in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, Dr. Otto Placik is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in nipple repair and correction along with a number of reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery procedures. Dr. Placik has helped women just like you feel confident again about their breast appearance.

Please contact us online or call our Chicago or Arlington Heights plastic surgery offices for more information on nipple repair, including prices.

Options for Nipple Repair

Dr. Placik offers a few different surgical procedures for nipple repair that can help improve the aesthetics of your entire breast:

  • Inverted Nipples – Although nipples normally turn outward, some women experience inverted nipples, a primarily genetic condition where nipples turn inward instead. Dr. Placik can correct inverted nipples with a simple surgical procedure.
  • Nipple Prominence – Overly large or puffy nipples and areolae can overwhelm the appearance of the rest of the breast. With nipple reduction surgery, Dr. Placik can restore a more balanced look. Nipples can be shortened or areolas can be decreased in diameter or size.
  • Nipple Reconstruction – Complete nipple reconstruction may be necessary in women with significantly asymmetrical nipples, misshapen areolae or as part of breast reconstruction.
