Details for Case #9113
This 40-year-old woman was embarrassed by the inverted nipple in her left breast. She also felt that her breasts were too small for her frame and wanted to look more proportional. Having heard positive reviews about Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, she called and set up a consultation.
During their meeting, she told her Los Angeles plastic surgeon that she often felt self-conscious in intimate situations because of her inverted nipple. She also admitted that she was uncomfortable wearing thin bras or certain shirts. Her surgeon listened and mentioned that inverted or “shy” nipples can also cause physical complications, such as inhibiting a woman’s ability to breast feed. He recommended nipple repair and breast augmentation in Los Angeles to rebuild her nipple and enhance her breast size.
For the operation, her surgeon used silicone gel implants which are pre-filled and have a smooth, soft feel. The nipple surgery was performed by placing a slight incision at the base of the nipple and creating an outward, erect projection and then suturing the nipple in place. The patient returned six months after her surgery and shows no signs of scarring and a normal nipple position. She is very happy with her results.
