What is Nipple Surgery?

Cosmetic Nipple Surgeries are a group of procedures which address aesthetic concerns affecting the nipples.

The nipples can be impacted by several issues which can affect people’s confidence, making them feel uncomfortable in certain clothing, or taking part in activities such as sport.  

There are three types of Nipple Surgery available at Cadogan Clinic:

Nipple Reduction 

Nipple Reduction is a simple surgical procedure which can be carried out under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. It aims to reduce the overall size and projection of the nipples giving a smoother, more balanced appearance to the chest, which restores confidence and allows people to take part in activities they feel they haven’t been able to.

Areola Reconstruction 

Following certain breast surgeries such as Mastectomy to treat Breast Cancer, the nipple and areola have to be removed. This can make some patients feel self-conscious about the appearance of their chest. Areola Reconstruction uses tissue from other areas of the body to rebuild the areola, resulting in a natural look to the chest.  

Inverted Nipple Correction 

Some people find that their nipples fall inwards towards the chest rather than naturally protruding outwards slightly - known as Inverted Nipples. This can cause a loss in confidence around wearing tight clothing or showing their chest. Inverted Nipple Correction is a simple procedure, usually carried out under local anaesthetic to release the tissue around the nipple, allowing it to move into an outwards position. This results in a more natural and proportionate appearance to the nipples restoring confidence and quality of life.

What Affects the Price of Nipple Surgeries in the UK?

Areola Reduction surgery cost UK, Inverted Nipple surgery cost UK and Nipple Reconstruction surgery cost can vary dramatically between clinics or surgeons. There are many reasons for this, and it is important to consider these factors when researching Nipple Surgery.

The experience and expertise of your consultant 

Choosing a consultant who specialises in Nipple Surgery will mean you achieve the highest quality results and that your procedure is performed using the most advanced techniques available. It is important to understand that a general surgeon will likely charge slightly lower prices, and may still be able to achieve a very good result, but depending on the complexity of your concerns, finding a specialist may be important to consider.

During your consultation, it is important to ask how many Nipple procedures your surgeon has carried out so you can get an understanding of their experience. The more procedures they have performed, the higher the quality their results are likely to be. Performing more surgeries also allows the consultant to develop consistency in their results. 

Cadogan Clinic is proud to have curated over 100 of the best specialist consultants from all over the world. We have many surgeons who are experts in their chosen fields and have even developed the surgical techniques and safety guidance in their specific procedures.

The location of the clinic 

Clinics based in large cities such as London are likely to attract the most experienced and specialist surgeons and clinic staff, which will often mean the price of Nipple Surgeries is higher than in other parts of the country.

The cost of living and wages are also higher in capital cities meaning business overheads are higher, which also drives up the price of services.

This doesn’t mean that clinics outside of large cities or in areas such as London aren’t delivering very high-quality results, but it is important to understand why Nipple Surgery costs vary around the UK.

Cadogan Clinic is located conveniently in Chelsea, London. All of our facilities are on-site in our dedicated hospital providing a central location for your entire surgical journey.

The safety record and patient outcomes of the clinic 

When looking at the various prices for Nipple Surgeries throughout the UK, it is important to take into account the safety and patient outcomes data available.

Key points to look at include:

  • Their surgical infection rates 
  • Their revision rates 
  • Their patient outcomes data showing how many patients were satisfied with the service and results 
  • Any reports published by regulators such as the Care Quality Commission (England), Healthcare Improvement Scotland, and Care Inspectorate Wales 

Clinics that maintain high safety standards and have low infection and revision rates may be investing more time and money into high standards of care, which means their prices may be higher than other clinics. This can include having a higher ratio of clinical staff to patients, having dedicated, specialist staff, and providing extra training and qualifications to their staff. 

Cadogan Clinic is dedicated to the highest patient safety possible. We carry out over 30,000 appointments a year. Our revision rate is 2.4%, with the average being 10%; and our infection rate is 0.2% with the national average being 4.7%. 

Innovation and Clinical Development 

Clinics and surgeons who are actively involved in research, education and developing surgical techniques often have higher costs than other providers. This is because they are at the forefront of patient safety and surgical innovation which requires investment to continue. 

Cadogan Clinic has published several papers and has been involved in the development of surgical techniques and safety including Liposuction, Fat Transfer and Brazilian Butt Lift. We continue to offer training for surgeons who wish to perform these surgeries and want to access high-quality education from the original source of these methods. 

We were also one of the first clinics in the UK to invest in the use of Total Intravenous Anaesthesia (TIVA) for all surgical procedures, which has improved patient outcomes, faster recovery, and allows for all procedures to be performed as daycases. We have continued this by pioneering the use of sedation for many procedures which continues the results of faster recovery and better surgical outcomes. 

Why Should You Choose to Have Surgery in the UK?

When looking at surgery pricing, some patients do look outside of the UK where prices are often cheaper. However, we always caution against this, as it is not always possible to assure that the best care will be provided.

Many clinics outside of the UK don’t have dedicated aftercare, which means once you return home, it is very difficult to speak to anyone about any concerns or questions you may have. By way of a contrast, Cadogan Clinic has a dedicated team of experienced cosmetic nurses who are available by phone 24/7 after your procedure to offer any help you may need.

It is also not always possible to verify a surgeon’s experience or qualifications when seeking surgery in another country. This means you may not be aware of any standard or integrity issues there may be with your surgeon.

If problems do arise following surgery abroad, it can be very challenging to make a complaint or raise the problems with a regulatory body. Healthcare is managed differently in every country, so unless you have a full understanding of how that country’s healthcare operates you may not be able to follow the process to ensure the surgeon or clinic responsible is held accountable.

Seeking surgery in the UK from a reputable provider is the safest way to ensure your surgery is safe and successful, and that if you do have any concerns they are addressed effectively. 

Words From Our Founder

Mr. Bryan Mayou

When looking at the prices of Nipple Surgeries, it is important to consider the wider picture, and not just the cost itself. Make sure you understand what is included in any package being provided and how that price may be affected by location, expertise and safety – which should all be prioritised. Having been a plastic surgeon for over 40 years, I have seen how transformative Nipple Surgeries can be to people’s confidence and quality of life. However, I have also seen how choosing a low-cost procedure can have a very negative impact.
Mr. Bryan Mayou
