YOUR BREAST reconstruction EXPERTS
Nipple Reconstruction

Your breast aesthetic concern may be less about size and shape, and more about the nipples or areolas. Nipple revision surgeries can take a few different forms and are designed to correct the size, shape, position, or projection of the nipples. Whether you wish to address inverted nipples, asymmetry, enlarged areolas, or other nipple-related issues, Verso Surgery Centre offers personalized nipple revision procedures to suit your unique needs.

YOUR Nipple reconstruction PROCEDURE

Nipple reconstruction is a transformative procedure offered at Verso Surgery Centre, designed to restore the natural appearance of the nipples for both men and women. Whether due to breast cancer surgery or congenital conditions, nipple reconstruction can provide a renewed sense of confidence and femininity. At Verso Surgery Centre, we utilize advanced techniques to create beautifully contoured and realistic nipples. This personalized procedure aims to match the size, shape, and colour of your original nipples, delivering natural-looking results that complement your unique body.


Inverted nipples can affect both men and women, leading to self-consciousness and lowered self-esteem. At Verso Surgery Centre, we understand the impact of this concern on our patients’ lives. Dr. Roberto Tutino offers personalized treatment options, including nipple correction surgery, to address inverted nipples effectively.

Whether you have one or both nipples affected, our expert team is equipped to provide compassionate care and restore natural-looking nipples. We rate inversion on a scale of 3 degrees, with 3 being the most severe. With precision and artistry, our surgeons tailor the procedure to your unique needs, whether for cosmetic enhancement or functional improvements.

The nipple is inverted or flat but can be stimulated to protrude. Those presenting with grade 1 can usually breastfeed if they wish and the nipples may protrude more after that. As well, these patients sometimes note the issue resolves after they have a breast augmentation with implants. The nipple eversion procedure can be done to correct the mildest form of inversion if the patient feels it will be worthwhile.

With some difficulty, the nipple can be forcefully made to protrude, only temporarily. Eversion surgery may affect milk ducts.

The nipple is profoundly inverted. Surgery is designed to release and reposition the nipple outside of the areola. After these corrections, the function of nipples for the purpose of breastfeeding is not typically possible.


How Is Nipple Reconstruction Done?

During nipple revision procedure at Verso Surgery Centre, your plastic surgeon will be able to ‘evert’ your nipple using a release and secure technique that requires only very tiny incisions. Through a small surgical opening, a precision tool is inserted at the base of the nipple and used to release or stretch the fibrous bands which attach the bottom of the nipple to the areola. Simultaneously, the nipple will be pulled out to a protruding position and secured there with a couple of sutures.

One of the reasons this procedure has a very high satisfaction rate is that scarring is virtually invisible. The incision is made on the areola, and often within a natural nipple/areola juncture. The areola pigment hides the faint scar well.  That means no one will need to know that you had corrective cosmetic surgery. Breasts will often change in appearance over a lifetime, and while nipple inversion may be present from birth, it can also develop due to trauma or breastfeeding. It may appear during puberty as the breast tissue grows. In rare cases, a growth within the breast could pull on the nipple and cause retraction or tethering. If you notice a sudden change in the appearance of a nipple, ask your primary care physician to examine you.

Inverted nipples appear because of an imbalance in muscle pull around the nipple. The strength of the outward muscle will be weaker than inward, causing the nipple to remain pulled in. These tiny bands of tension are released during surgery. While they don’t usually cause discomfort, many people wish to correct inverted nipples for aesthetic reasons. Luckily, the procedure designed to do this is straightforward and relatively easy.
