The areola is the pigmented skin surrounding the center of the nipple. The nipple is the very center part of the areola that is usually raised. However, about 20% of women have experienced some degree of inverted nipple at some point.
Although inverted nipples are asymptomatic and painless, the condition can make some patients very self-conscious. Abnormalities in the nipples and areolas can be a source of insecurity for both men and women. If you think your nipples are inverted and it is bothering you, you should contact Dr. Abel Mounir, Breast Cosmetic Surgeon, to arrange an appointment. At the Manchester Cosmetic Centre, we perform modern surgical techniques to correct nipple or areola deformities, including inverted nipple correction and nipple reduction.
If the nipple is too big or over-projecting, Dr. Mounir offers nipple reduction surgery in Manchester to reduce the size of the nipple and produce a pleasing look of the nipple-areola complex.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nipples or/and areolas, please feel free to contact us to arrange an appointment with Dr. Abel Mounir to discuss your expectations.

Typically, the recovery process is straightforward, with some discomfort. The dressing will depend on the procedure performed. For example, Grade I inverted nipple correction involves a light dressing that will be removed after seven days. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mounir will inform you that there is about 3% risk of recurrence of the inversion. One of the most dangerous complications is the possibility of nipple necrosis (nipple loss). This happens when the blood supply to the nipple is damaged.
The total cost for nipple or/and areola correction will depend on the complexity of the procedure and the length of the required surgery. You will be provided with a more precise quote at the end of your initial consultation with Dr. Mounir.
