A custom nipple repair surgery can give you the beautifully balanced, ideally-shaped nipples, dramatically enhancing the appearance of your breasts.

What is nipple repair?

The nipple structure includes both the areola (the colored tissue surrounding the nipple) and the nipple itself. One or both aspects of your nipples may be less attractive than you want. A custom nipple repair surgery can do any of the following:

  • Reduce areola size
  • Flatten a puffy nipple
  • Correct inverted nipples
  • Repair the shape of overly-long, irregularly shaped, or bumpy nipples

Why have nipple

repair surgery?

If you are one of the many women who are unhappy with the appearance of your nipples, you have the right to create the look that brings you greater joy and confidence. A custom nipple repair will create a more attractive size, shape, and structure, so your nipples look beautifully balanced on the breast mound. Dr. Courtney is among the most talented breast surgeons in Houston and is often called upon to perform this custom surgery, either as a standalone procedure or combined with a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction.

What is the procedure?

You are a unique individual in every way, from your personality to your breasts and body. The surgical procedure will reflect the condition of your nipples and what you hope to achieve. You may feel that your areolas are far too large, and want them reduced in size, or be living with puffy nipples that you think are less attractive. Whatever your aesthetic goals, Dr. Courtney can perform a customized surgery to create the nicely balanced, perfectly sized nipples.

Your breasts will look significantly more attractive once the surgery is completed. Generally, the procedure is performed with a local anesthetic. An incision is placed at the edge of the areola through which the size, shape, or projection of the nipples is improved. As the incision line is at the junction of the areola and your breast skin, the incision scars are virtually undetectable once healed.
