While it can be performed to enlarge nipples or make them smaller, nipple correction surgery is most often used to correct inverted nipples. Inverted nipples point inwards, making it difficult to breast feed. Aside from breast feeding issues, inverted nipples are considered to be a benign problem that is largely cosmetic in nature. Health insurance often refuses to pay for cosmetic surgeries, so you may have to pay for your surgery yourself. The average cost for a nipple correction surgery for both breasts in the United Kingdom is 2,000 pounds and is about $2,000 in the United States.
Inverted nipples can make breastfeeding difficult or impossible, but so can nipple correction surgery. Though surgeons are sometimes able to keep the nipple and milk ducts connected during surgery, this is not always the case. If the connection between the two is severed, breastfeeding in the future will be impossible. As a general rule, cosmetic surgeons recommend against nipple correction surgery if you ever plan to breastfeed. It is important for women seeking this surgery to understand that the procedure should not be viewed as a solution to breastfeeding problems.
Nipple correction surgery is often performed as outpatient surgery and is sometimes done using local rather than general anesthesia. This makes for a speedy recovery. You will leave the surgery with a bandage over your nipple and instructions on when and how to change the dressing. You'll need to avoid strenuous activity for 7 to 10 days so plan to take a week off work. Over-the- counter painkillers are usually all that is required to keep patients comfortable as they heal. Be aware that some scarring will be present but will fade in a few months. Your doctor will set a follow up appointment with you before you leave his office after your surgery. Be sure to keep it so he can check the progress of your healing.

Make sure the surgeon who performed your surgery does the final check before you go home and not other members of the clinic staff.
