Nipple inversion is a common condition in which the nipple lies flat or inverted to the breast and does not protrude in a normal way. The condition can exist from birth, but in some cases can develop later in life. Inverted nipples must be checked by a medical professional as they can be a symptom of more serious underlying medical problems. There are of course different grades of inverted nipples and not all require surgery.

The surgical procedure is a highly straightforward and swift corrective treatment for inverted nipples and has been performed for several decades. Inverted Nipple Correction is particularly effective for removing any embarrassment related to the condition and can usually be completed in under one hour. It commonly involves the creation of a number of small skin flaps around the nipple to push the nipple up and out.

Whatever your personal requirements, Inverted Nipple Correction at the Cadogan Clinic will provide the leading experts and techniques for your treatment at its state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London facility.

FAQs

Your experienced Cadogan Cosmetic surgeon will give you pre-operative advice at your initial consultation and this may include stopping smoking and taking certain medications such as aspirin which will delay your healing.

Recovery from Nipple Correction usually involves mild discomfort and most patients are able to return to work within two days. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks. Swelling may last for several weeks after surgery, depending on the individual.

You may feel some discomfort in the first 24 to 48 hours following your nipple correction but this can readily be controlled with mild pain killers. Once you have been discharged from hospital you will be given pain killers by your surgeon to take as required.

Recovery from Nipple Correction usually involves mild discomfort and most patients are able to return to work within two days. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks. Swelling may last for several weeks after surgery, depending on the individual.

Nipple surgery is carried out regularly as Cadogan Cosmetics, and any risks associated with this surgery are the same as with any other surgical procedure that involves a general anaesthetic if this is what you choose rather than local anaesthetic. There are no specific risks to be concerned about, but your surgeon will explain the nipple correction surgery procedure to you in detail.

Inverted nipple correction surgery permanently extends the nipple to the outward position, by stretching or dividing the milk duct muscles, so they don’t withdraw inward as their normal position. The method used to rebalance the muscles’ pull depends on the surgeon’s assessment of nipple inversion and its severity. The nipple correction treatment is performed as day surgery.

Protruding nipple correction at Cadogan Cosmetics can reduce the height and width of the nipple whilst still preserving sensation. It can be carried out under local anaesthesia or in combination with other procedures (under general anaesthesia). Recovery from protruding nipple surgery is quick with very little disruption to your normal routine.

A flat nipple is one which will not become erect with cold or stimulation and appears to blend into the areola.  Flat nipple correction at Cadogan Cosmetics is a straightforward procedure which can commonly be completed in under an hour. It commonly involves the creation of a number of small skin flaps around the nipple to push the nipple up and out.

Inverted nipples are actually quite common and occur in about 10-20% of all women. True inverted nipples are present from birth though they can develop in later life, and do not protrude with cold or stimulation. The cause is usually due to connections in underlying tissue, ligaments and the skin.

Inverted nipples from birth are not medically harmful though can be a source of embarrassment and the good news is that there is treatment available for inverted nipple correction.  At Cadogan Cosmetics, we provide surgical treatment to fix inverted nipples.

You may be wondering if liposuction really works – to put it simply, yes!

Liposuction at Cadogan Cosmetics provides a quick, safe and effective solution for permanently removing unwanted, excess fat deposits from your body.  It is particularly effective in cases where men and women have difficulties shifting stubborn fat reserves in body areas which are hard to reach despite eating healthily and exercising.

Cadogan Cosmetics was founded by Mr. Bryan Mayou, the surgeon responsible for introducing liposuction into the UK more than 30 years ago.  The Cadogan Cosmetics team are experts in performing more liposuction than anyone else in the UK.

It is completely normal to experience minor swelling, bruising and tenderness following liposuction treatment at Cadogan Cosmetics, but this should subside one to two weeks afterwards.  The full results are often not seen until around six weeks post-surgery when the area and incisions are fully healed, with minimal if any scarring, as they are so small.

Your expert Cadogan Cosmetics surgeon will advise you on when you can commence normal daily activities and exercise, but we usually recommend taking one to two weeks off work to recover and you are likely to wear a support garment to protect the area for a short while post-procedure.

Liposuction at Cadogan Cosmetics is a safe and effective solution of permanently removing fat from the body.  It is suitable for fat removal from virtually any part of the body, but popular areas include liposuction to the lower back, inner thighs, upper arms, stomach, chin, hips, abs, knees, loins and ankles.

Cadogan Cosmetics was founded by Cadogan Clinic founder Bryan Mayou, the surgeon responsible for introducing liposuction into the UK more than 30 years ago. As such, he has more experience of the various techniques than anybody else in the country and now heads the country’s leading team of experts in performing more liposuction than anybody else in the UK.

We carefully evaluate all available liposuction techniques and currently offer four: Traditional Liposuction, Bodyjet (Water Assisted) Liposuction, Laser Liposuction and Power Assisted Liposuction.  This enables us to choose the most suitable technique for your condition. After carrying out extensive research into other techniques, including Ultrasound Liposuction, or Vaser Liposuction, the Clinic has abandoned all ultrasound techniques as we consider them to offer no advantages and add unnecessary complications.

At Cadogan Cosmetics we have 30 years experience pioneering liposuction treatments and have developed the best protocols for the best results with lowest level of risk. Whilst there are always minimal risks associated with all types of surgery, we take direct steps to mitigate these:

• We treat all our patients in our own dedicated hospital in which we control and maintain standards to the highest levels.
• All procedures are carried out as day cases, allowing patients to get home to their own home environment and reducing the risk of infection. Our post-operative infection rates are among the lowest in the country.
• We only allow surgeons to practice who have demonstrated a track record of being amongst the most skilled in the country. With carefully selected techniques, we avoid uneven results.
• We avoid techniques such as ultrasound Vaser which can burn the skin and cause collections of fluid (seroma) which have to be drained.
• We provide comprehensive post-operative care at the hands of our expert team of cosmetic nurses.

Tiny incisions are made to introduce the suction tube in areas that are usually hidden to ensure that any small scars are well hidden after surgery. Typical locations include the groin or armpit where they will not be seen. If you are particularly worried about scarring, you are welcome to speak at any time with our specialist scarring nurse who will be on hand throughout the process.

We recommend local anaesthetic where possible as a surgical alternative as recovery can be quicker and prices cheaper. However, we do recognize the decision ultimately must have input on both the doctor and patient sides and as all our procedures can be carried out under local anaesthetic, the choice is yours.

We do not recommend it for larger procedures, as local anaesthesia can be uncomfortable to inject on a repeated basis and it becomes less effective as one comes towards the end of the procedure.  It is the closing stages of the procedure which are the most important in removing the maximum amount of fat and also to produce a smooth result.

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.

All techniques of liposuction tighten the skin.  This tightening will be significant where the skin is thin, such as in the neck and arms.  Elsewhere, where the skin is heavier, it will generally be sufficient to take up the extra laxity due to the removal of fat.  In areas where the skin is already hanging in folds, such as the hanging bottom or abdominal apron, these folds tend to remain.  However, where there are folds of heavy fat over the lower back, liposuction can make a very significant improvement.

In extreme cases of fat removal, where the skin is loose, such as the abdominal apron, or where there has been significant weight loss, a combination of liposuction and skin excision may be the better option.

Step 3. The Procedure

On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Clinic by your patient advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.

After the procedure you will recover in the capable hands of your nursing after care team. As we are a day case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours and able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure.
