New Web Site Offers Expert for Those Who Need Nipple Correction

A new website available online at allows who are self-conscious or worried about their own nipple size and shape to explore surgical options for cosmetic correction.

“Most women do not realize how common it is to have inverted nipples,” says Dr. Stevens. “At first they feel some relief that they are not alone. Then they usually get excited about the possibility of having their nipples corrected.” Dr. Stevens’s pioneered one approach to correct inverted nipples in which 100% of the treated patients have maintained their post-surgical nipple projection – a drastic improvement over other techniques. Simple surgical procedures can also be performed on areolas that are too large and out of proportion with breast size as well as nipple that are too large or that project too much. Many women are not aware that these solutions are available, and instead live their lives feeling self-conscious or going out of their way to camouflage their bodies.

Many women who are self-conscious about the size, projection or inversion of their nipples feel isolated, embarrassed or even worried about their ability to breastfeed. The poll allows people to both express their own idea of beauty as well as to realize that if they don’t have the “perfect” nipples themselves, they are not alone.

“The results after the nipple repair surgery are remarkable – both physically and psychologically. Our patients report feeling more confident and comfortable with their bodies, often with a higher sense of freedom,” explains Dr. Stevens.

Inverted nipples can differ in severity. While some inversions can be “coaxed” out when aroused or cold, others are more densely inverted and can lead to infection, irritation and the inability to breastfeed. Most inverted nipples are congenital, though some nipples become inverted due to scar tissue forming after breastfeeding. Nipple repair can guarantee the nipple’s ability to retain projection, but not all women will be able to breastfeed afterwards. Areolas and nipples that are too large or that project too much are also very common and respond very well to nipple reduction techniques. Marina Plastic Surgery offers surgeries to minimize size as well as nipple length.
