Inverted nipple correction and breast augmentation
Breast Augmentation and Inverted Nipple
Thank you for your question. Yes both Surgery can be performed in one operation. Breast augmentation” operation is performed under general anesthesia and it takes to perform the procedure nearly 1 to 1.5 hours when it is performed by a team of plastic surgeons. It is really important to decrease the operation duration to give less anesthesia to the patient yielding a better postoperative period to the patient. You will be advised not to eat 6 hours before the surgery and that is all! You will get a physical examination by your surgeon and anesthetist. After the examination; we will prepare you for the surgery. You will receive a sedation in order to reduce the preoperative anxiety and fell yourself more comfortable.
Breast augmentation/nipple repair
Thank you for your question.
I can understand your excitement, this is an exciting decision! But you are going to get the most accurate answer from your plastic surgeons office. Every office offers different prices and discounts. Most do offer discounts on multiple procedures but that doesn’t mean to say that they all will. Cost varies on location and surgeon but I can tell you that the RealSelf average cost for nipple repair is around $2,000-$3,000. Best of luck!

Correction of inverted nipples can be done at the same time as your augmentation. The price will likely be less than if you had the procedure performed separately. The cost will vary, so unfortunately for a specific quote you will need to speak with your surgeon's office.

Correcting inverted nipples at the time of BA?
Usually secondary procedures are discounted when done together at the same surgery. The cost will vary from surgeon to surgeon and community to community.
Since the operation on inverted nipples can introduce bacteria into the equation, it's prudent to do this procedure a month or two after the breast augmentation. This is a simple in office procedure which can be done under local anesthesia. Talk to your plastic surgeon about fees. Best of luck.
Breast augmentation and inverted nipple correction?
It is possible to have both a breast augmentation and an inverted nipple correction done at the same time. Your surgeon would probably give you a discount for doing both at the same time. Separating the two surgeries may save you money on anesthesia costs however, since the nipple correction can be done under local anesthesia in an office O.R.. Discuss this with your plastic surgeon and good luck.
These procedures are done safely together routinely in my practice. It is imperative that the nipple procedures be performed after the completion of the augmentation procedure. Discount policies are unique to each surgeon.
Hope this helps.
