This 28-year-old woman was bothered by her inverted nipples. They made her very self-conscious, especially when her nipples contracted and became more inverted. Dr. Stoker performed an inverted nipple repair on both sides using local anesthesia and duct sparing technique. She is shown before and one month following surgery.
This 58-year-old woman had undergone inverted nipple repair many years earlier by another surgeon, but was disappointed with the improvement. She desired repair of the inverted nipples as well as breast augmentation. Dr. Stoker performed both procedures for her. For the breast augmentation he used 272cc, textured, silicone gel implants placed under her muscle. She is shown before and six weeks following her surgery.
This 24-year-old woman felt uncomfortable with the look of her nipples. Both of them were inverted, pointing inward instead of outward, making them look unnatural. Concerned with finding a qualified surgeon to perform her nipple surgery, this patient decided to schedule a consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons here at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
When she met with her surgeon, he examined her breasts and explained the process of nipple surgery to her. He would make a small incision at the base of the nipple and then by spreading the internal fibers in the tissue, he would nudge the nipple outward. Then, using carefully placed incisions, he would support the nipple, keeping it outward as it healed into its proper position.
After her surgery was completed, this patient was very happy with what her Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon had done. In the "after" photos, which were taken six weeks after her surgery, both of her nipples looked natural and normal and there is no obvious sign of surgery. She was very pleased.
This 43-year-old woman was concerned about the look of her breasts. She felt that her breasts were too small and looked unnatural with her inverted nipples. Instead of pointing outward, both of her nipples were inverted, or turned inward. The condition affects millions of women, usually as a genetic trait. For this patient, Los Angeles plastic surgerywas the best solution to address her concerns.
She met with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice to discuss her options. She and her surgeon decided that she would undergo a breast augmentation with 325cc Moderate Profile Plus silicone gel implants and then her surgeon would surgically address her nipples. Using careful incisions and sutures, her surgeon would be able to correct her nipples without severing nerves or damaging the milk duct. This would preserve her nipple sensation and function, which is a common concern with inverted nipple surgery.
When the surgery was completed, this patient was very happy with the results. She loved the new size and shape of her breasts, feeling that they looked natural, normal and full. She was also very pleased with the new look of her nipples and happy that they would permanently remain outward.
This 46-year-old woman was unhappy with the look of her breasts and right nipple. Over time, her breasts had begun to sag unattractively and to make things worse, her right nipple was inverted, pointing inward instead of outward. She eventually decided to find a Los Angeles or Santa Monica plastic surgeon who could help enhance the look of her breasts, and finally decided to schedule a consultation at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
When she met with her surgeon, she discussed her concerns and asked what her surgeon could do to address them. To start, her surgeon recommended that he perform a breast lift using laser breast surgery. This technique uses a section of the patient's tissue to create an internal "support" that supports the breast tissue. Once the lift was completed, her surgeon could move on to address her inverted nipple.
To preserve the sensation and function of the nipple, her surgeon performed a duct-sparing technique, where the milk duct is never cut or closed, allowing it to function normally. Her surgeon would also work around her nerves in order to preserve the sensation in that area. When the inverted nipple surgery was completed, her surgeon would place a special stent over the nipple to protect it after surgery.
The "after" photos were taken 3 months after surgery. The scars should fade into her skin tone with time, but the results will last. Now, her nipple projects outward, looking and functioning more naturally. She was very pleased with the results and happy that she had finally undergone cosmetic surgery to enhance her breasts.
This 30-year-old woman was generally unhappy with the look of her breasts. She felt that her breasts were too small and deflated and was uncomfortable with the look of her nipples. She suffered from a condition called inverted nipples, where the nipples point inward rather than projecting outward. About 2% of all women suffer from this condition which can cause many women to feel negatively about their bodies. After doing some research, this woman decided to find a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon who could perform both a breast augmentation and nipple surgery.
This patient decided to schedule a consultation with one of the talented Dr. Stoker's Practice plastic surgeons. Having had extensive experience with both nipple correction and breast augmentation, her surgeon recommended that he perform a special technique to preserve the function and sensitivity of her nipples after inserting her 600cc Moderate Plus Profile silicone gel implants into a pocket below the muscle. The breast implants would be placed using an incision around the areolas, or the darker skin around the nipple, and once the incision was closed, her surgeon would be able to address her nipple inversion.
Six weeks after her surgery, this patient's nipples looked healthy and normal, as can be seen in the "after" photos. They no longer "puckered" inward, and with the added boost of her breast augmentation, her breasts look fuller and more feminine. She was very pleased with the results of her surgery and glad that she had finally decided to undergo inverted nipple surgery.
This 25-year-old woman was unhappy with the way her nipples pointed inward. To find a solution, she began researching how inverted nipple surgery could permanently make her nipples look normal. And, after some consideration, she decided to schedule a consultation with one of the plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
Concerned with preserving the function of her nipples, her surgeon recommended that he perform a special duct-sparing technique that would not cut or close the milk duct. This technique would allow her to breast feed in the future and would help to preserve her nipple sensation as well. Her surgeon would carefully work around the duct and nerves to ensure that no unnecessary alterations would be made. Additionally, her surgeon would use carefully placed internal and external sutures with dissolving thread to ensure that the nipples stay outward without very visibly scarring.
After her Los Angeles plastic surgerywas completed, this patient's nipples look healthy and normal. As can be seen in the "after" photos, her nipple does not show any signs of having undergone surgery; the incision healed so well that the scar is not visible. She was thrilled with the new, natural look of her nipples and was glad that her surgeon was able to preserve the function and feeling of her nipples.
