Inverted Nipple Surgery in Turkey

Compare 8 clinics

Inverted nipple surgery, also known as inverted nipple correction is a simple yet effective procedure performed for cosmetic as well as functional reasons.

What are inverted nipples?

This is a condition in which the nipple is pulled and pointing inward into the breast, instead of pointing outward, away from the breast. This condition is also known as nipple retraction or nipple inversion. Nipple inversion can be caused by trauma, disease or it may be present at birth. It’s actually quite common, with around ten to twenty percent of women from all around the world suffering from it, to some degree.

Suddenly inverting nipples can be a cause for concern as it can be a sign for breast cancer, if the patient is not pregnant and has not suffered any trauma to the bust region – it’s better to have a routine check straight away.

Inverted nipple surgery is usually performed for three main reasons:

● Inverted nipple surgery for functional reasons
The nipple’s protrusion is extremely important after pregnancy – it actually helps during breastfeeding. Many women experience breastfeeding problems due to inverted nipples and when all other remedies fail, inverted nipple surgery is the only way to ensure full breastfeeding functionality.

● Inverted nipple surgery for cosmetic reasons
Women may feel more attractive with protruding nipples instead of inverted nipples. Some women turn to inverted nipple surgery after having their nipples inverted during pregnancy.

● Inverted nipple surgery for psychological reasons
Women with inverted nipples can feel incomplete or less feminine due to this condition. Asymmetry of the breasts can also affect the person’s confidence and overall quality of life.

Inverted Nipple Surgery Candidates

Inverted nipple surgery or inverted nipple correction is recommended for patients with nipple retraction or nipple inversion.

Am I Suitable for Inverted Nipple Surgery?

Inverted nipple surgery contraindications include one or more of the following:

● Pregnant or nursing patients
● Age under 18
● Infections around the breast area
● Other health problems
● Unrealistic expectations from the procedure

Preparing for Inverted Nipple Surgery

An evaluation of the patient must be done before undergoing inverted nipple correction. There are three main degrees of nipple inversion:

● Grade one: minimal inversion – the nipples can and do protrude in cold temperatures or when manually stimulated
● Grade two: moderate inversion – the nipples can’t protrude easily or for longer periods of time
● Grade three: severe inversion – the nipples never protrude and breastfeeding is impossible

How is Inverted Nipple Surgery Performed?

Inverted nipple correction is usually done under local anaesthesia but some patients may opt for general anaesthesia.

The surgeon creates a very small incision where the nipple connects to the areola. The incision is circular, going all around the nipple. Both the nipple and areola are then stitched together, ensuring that the nipple protrudes out of the breast.

Patients suffering from severe nipple inversion will also have the milk ducts cut, in order to release and reposition the nipple. The area is then bandaged and the procedure is complete. It takes around an hour.

Turkey

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.

Healthcare

Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 



● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.
