Nipple Surgery Scottsdale

Inverted Nipples:

Inverted nipples, or nipples that remain buried, can usually be corrected in a straightforward procedure under local anesthesia in our office Procedure Room.  Depending on the severity of the inversion (some come out when stimulated, others won’t come out at all), they are usually corrected with a small incision at the bottom of the nipple.  Protectors are worn for approximately a week after surgery.  The sutures usually dissolve around 2 weeks out.   Correction of inverted nipples can permanently damage the ability to breast feed out of that nipple, and can also decrease their sensitivity, which needs to be considered when choosing this procedure.

Nipple Reduction Surgery:

Nipples can be too long or too wide, whether genetically or after breast-feeding.   This can make it difficult to wear certain styles of clothing.  This can be corrected in the office under local anesthesia.  Dr. White will consult with you as to your desired size of nipple.  The sutures typically dissolve in 2 weeks or so.  This surgery can permanently damage the ability to breast feed out of the corrected nipple,  and can also decrease their sensitivity, which needs to be considered when choosing this procedure.

Nipple Reduction Surgery, Male:

Just like women, men can have nipples that are large enough to show through their clothing.  It is a very straightforward procedure done using local anesthesia in our office.  The sutures are dissolvable and are usually gone by about 2 weeks after surgery.

To Our Valued Patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your loved ones in good health. Per directives by the Governor and HonorHealth we will be restarting surgery and several in-office procedures, while following new protocols to decrease the risk of transmission of any illness.

FOR SURGERIES AT THE OUTPATIENT CENTER: All patients MUST be covid negative. The hospital will coordinate the testing which must be done 2 days before your surgery and will be at NO COST to you.

We have decided to begin with our younger, lower risk patients having shorter surgeries for the first couple of weeks. Preops will of course be in person.

FOR CONSULTS AND BOTOX AND IN-OFFICE PROCEDURES: All patients must be screened for exposure to coronavirus (questionnaire) and have no symptoms or fever. We will not be doing any procedures around the mouth for the first few weeks. Patients MUST wear MASKS.

You will see some changes to our office procedures:

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you and our staff safe in our practice! To make an appointment please call 480-614-3535 or visit our website at www.drwhiteplasticsurgery.com.

Sincerely,
Deborah White, MD and staff
