Can I breastfeed after an inverted nipple correction operation?
Depending on the technique used, it can mean that breastfeeding is not an option in the future, although many women are unable to breastfeed for a number of reasons and inverted nipples can make it difficult. Mr Paul Tulley will explain this aspect in full at your consultation and answer any questions you may have.
What is the recovery like after inverted nipple correction?
An inverted nipple correction typically takes just 15 minutes to perform the procedure on each nipple. For this reason, many people choose to have the surgery as a day case under local anaesthetic. Scarring is kept to a minimum and you should be able to return to work within two days, although each patient’s recovery time will differ.
Are there any risks to an inverted nipple correction?
Some discomfort around the nipple is common within the first week following the procedure. However, if the pain is severe you should contact the surgeon immediately. A dressing will need to be worn for a week before it is changed. All risks will be discussed within your initial consultation, where you’ll also be able to ask any questions you may have.
