When one looks at the female breast, the eye is drawn to the nipple, but for many women with inverted nipples, this fact makes them feel unattractive. With Dr. Pittman’s minimally invasive nipple surgery, Athens women can choose to have their inverted nipples corrected, restoring their self-confidence once again.
Inversion occurs because of several factors. Some women are born with a genetic pre-disposition for this condition, while others have breasts that are damaged due to breastfeeding or trauma. The condition occurs when the ducts underneath the nipples somehow tethers them to the breast tissue, pulling them inward toward the breast.
Dr. Pittman’s surgical correction involves very little downtime and can be performed under local anesthetic. He simply makes two small incisions, releasing the ducts that are pulling the nipples down, and closing the incisions. This simple procedure allows the nipples to return to a natural position, without visible scarring and long recovery periods. Dr. Pittman then uses tiny stitches to bolster the positioning of the nipples and prevent a recurrence.
The risks to this procedure are minimal, as the incisions are tiny. It can interfere with future breastfeeding attempts, and some women experience decreased sensation. Otherwise, the results typically remain permanently, freeing the woman from the uncomfortable feelings about her body associated with this condition.
