The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Overview

Inverted nipple surgery, also known as inverted nipple correction is a simple yet effective procedure performed for cosmetic as well as functional reasons.  These treatments are especially chosen by moms with flat or inverted nipples who can potentially have a problem when wanting to breastfeed their babies. 


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 chest. This condition is also known as nipple retraction or nipple inversion. This may be caused by trauma, disease or congenital. An inverted nipple can occur on one or both breasts and it's estimated that 9 to 10 percent of women have at least one inverted nipple.

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 condition of the nipple becomes extremely important especially during the lactation period after pregnancy. Many women suffer from breastfeeding problems due to inverted nipples and the surgery is the only way to ensure breastfeeding functionality.

 

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

● Inverted nipple surgery for psychological reasons 
Women with an inverted nipple may feel somehow missing or less feminine because of this condition. Likewise, the asymmetry of the breasts can affect women's self-confidence and overall quality of life.

Preparation

Before performing an inverted nipple correction surgery, the patients should be evaluated and the degree of their condition should be determined. Inverted nipple condition is divided into three grades:

  • Grade one: minimal inversion. The nipples may protrude in cold weather and when manually stimulated.
  • Grade two: moderate inversion. The nipples cannot protrude easily or for longer.
  • Grade three: severe inversion. The nipples never protrude and it is impossible to breastfeed at this stage.

How It Is Performed

Inverted nipple correction is usually done under local anesthesia. The surgeon creates a very small incision around the base of your nipple. The incision is circular, going all around the nipple. Then the nipple and areola are both lifted from the breast and sewn into a protruding shape.  Patients suffering from severe nipple inversion will also have the milk ducts cut, in order to release and reposition the nipple and this will allow the nipple to protrude. The area is then bandaged with a medicated gauze and the procedure is complete. 

Recovery

Patients can experience some degree of swelling, tenderness, and soreness around the corrected nipple for around 2 weeks during recovery time. Most patients return to work in about 2 days after the procedure but heavy physical activities should be avoided for approximately 2 weeks as well, giving the nipple ample time to heal. Patients also need to avoid wearing any padded bras or tight tops during these 2 weeks. 

Risks

Risks and complications associated with inverted nipple surgery can include:

  • Scarring may occur
  • Infection may occur
  • Nipple could invert again
  • Milk duct may be damaged

Side Effects

Side effects associated with inverted nipple correction can include:

  • Discomfort
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Partial nipple necrosis
  • Delayed healing

Success Rates

Inverted nipple surgery is successful in 90% of cases after 2 years follow-up, but it depends on the degree of inversion the patient is suffering from

Before And After

Patients can see the procedure's results in 2 weeks after the nipples have healed. Some women can experience nipple inversion after a period of time.

Faq

Can I Breastfeed After Inverted Nipple Surgery? 
The answer depends on the degree of your situation. Generally speaking, patients with severe inversion do not breastfeed after inverted nipple correction.

How Long Do the Results Last?
The results of this surgery are usually permanent, but some factors, such as pregnancy or rapid weight gain, may cause the nipple to be inverted again.

Are There Any Alternatives to Inverted Nipple Correction?
If the patient suffers from a mild grade of inversion, some exercises and remedies may be helpful, but they do not fully solve the problem.Although the surgery is more effective, there is also an alternative inverted nipple treatment without surgeryduring which a device is used called niplette.
