We can all relate to seeing a gorgeous woman walking down the street and thinking to ourselves she has it all. Sometimes looks can be deceiving. All of us try to put our best foot forward and look our most fashionable, yet for some an aesthetic issue can be hiding underneath that erodes confidence that the best designer dress can’t fix. Not all of us get the perfect shake when it comes to our bodies and what Mother Nature hands out. Having something slightly off can be difficult to want to talk about and or share. One of those conditions on the “not talked about list” is living with an inverted nipple.
It’s not a condition that impacts breast health or function, but if you have inverted nipples, it may be impacting your self-esteem. No worries about keeping your lingerie on as the end game, because according to Dr. Danovich, inverted nipples can be corrected quickly, safely and painlessly in the office setting.
“Many of the patients who come to my practice with inverted nipples have resigned themselves to the situation,” states Dr. Danovich. “They feel imbalanced, ‘different’, thinking it’s something they just have to live with. But you don’t have to live with it. It’s an easy fix with significant impact on the self-confidence with immediate self-esteem boost!”
The procedure involves a one millimeter incision at the base of the nipple, from which Dr. Danovich quickly cut the attachments and release the inversion, and then she reconstructs a naturally – looking nipple with just a few tiny internal stitches. The Inverted nipple surgery is performed under local anesthesia, and the patient remains fully awake during the short procedure – approximately 15 to 20 minutes per side. Results are immediate with outstanding cosmetic results! If the patient experiences some soreness, Dr. Danovich recommends an over-the-counter pain reliever. Patients can return to work and other normal activities right away, and can resume strenuous exercise in seven to 10 days.
“One of the best things about this technique,” notes Dr. Danovich, “is there is absolutely no scarring whatsoever. It’s really such a small procedure, but for every one of my patients, it makes them feel so much better. It is the little details that are vital to feel complete even if you are the only one to know!”
