More details on nipple correction

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Nipple Correction step by step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering nipple correction surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.


At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your nipples to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks – with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. There are various methods of surgery depending on whether you’d like to correct inverted nipples, reduce enlarged nipples or have an areola reduction. Your surgeon will discuss these with you and the outcome that you can anticipate, as well as any potential complications involved in the procedure. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.


On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. The procedure will depend on the type of nipple correction you’re having and you’ll have been given all the details before deciding to go ahead. Generally, you can expect your surgery to take around one hour and be carried out under local anaesthetic, so you’ll be awake but shouldn't experience any pain. You might opt to have a mild sedative which may make you feel a little drowsy.


Many procedures can be carried out on an outpatient basis, which means you should be able to leave the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place on the same day. We advise that you don’t drive yourself home after your procedure – we can arrange transport for you if required. Your breasts may feel sore for a few days, so you may want to take painkillers to ease any discomfort. You’ll have a light dressing in place and before you leave the hospital we’ll make an appointment for you to see your surgeon again to check on your progress. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.


We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. You’ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and we’ll give you detailed guidance on the best way to do this. You may be able to return to work after a couple of days, although we recommend that you avoid doing anything strenuous for around seven to ten days after your nipple correction procedure. Any scars may appear firm and pink for several weeks, but usually start fading over subsequent months. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.
