Breast correction with microsurgical technique

Inverted (turned inwards) nipples:

This is one of the most common congenital problems, with as many as nine percent of women having one or both nipples inverted, flat or only slightly prominent.

Inanna Weiss is one of the few plastic surgeons experienced in microsurgical techniques for treating inverted nipples.
Inverted nipples are a common congenital problem that few people talk about. Up to nine percent of women have one or both nipples inverted, where they appear ‘flat’ or only slightly prominent. The condition is caused by an overproduction of short and highly resistant collagen fibers and often worsens with repeated pregnancies and breastfeeding.

Besides the unwanted aesthetic issues, inverted nipples can be the source of recurring inflammatory or infectious conditions in the external milk ducts or in the mammary gland itself. In addition, women with severe cases experience difficulties with breastfeeding.
Few know that it can be treated with minor surgery under local anesthesia with a very discreet, often invisible scar.

Operative correction

There are several methods of treating this condition, the most common of which involve creating small flaps of skin or inserting traction sutures inside the nipple so that it can keep its corrected shape.
Microsurgical technique: Dr. Weiss operates with a special technique using optical magnification that allows dissection (loosening) of the fine strong collagen fibers that cause the inverted shape of the nipple.
This is more likely to preserve nerves and milk ducts, thereby maintaining nipple sensitivity and improving the chances of future breastfeeding. This method preserves the natural function of the nipple (gives a more natural result) and can be performed with minimal scarring under local anesthesia.

Candidates for surgical correction of inverted nipples:
Most patients are aged between 20 and 60 years old. Candidates are women with a fully developed breast who are not pregnant or breastfeeding.

Gynecomastia (male breast formation)

Gynecomastia, or more specifically, male breast development, affects many men of different ages. This can be treated with liposuction and removal of the enlarged mammary gland.
