Why Nipple Correction
Clients that are unhappy with their inverted nipples may benefit greatly from a Signature Inverted Nipple Correction by Board Certified Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jaime Schwartz. It is estimated that 9-10% of women have at least 1 inverted nipple. Although less common, men can have them too. There are varying degrees to inverted nipples. Some only indent some of the time and are reversible with stimulation or changes in temperature. While others are permanently inverted which can be a source of embarrassment, difficulty with breast feeding and even hygiene problems. If an inverted nipple has come upon suddenly or gotten worse, there could be a concern for a breast cancer pulling it inward and a screening mammogram might be necessary. However, for most the inverted nipple was noticed during adolescence, puberty or pregnancy with breast growth.
DISCUSSING INVERTED NIPPLE CORRECTION
During a personalized inverted nipple correction consultation with Dr. Schwartz, you will discuss your individual goals and desires. The most common underlying cause of inverted nipples are ducts and other tethering tissues which are too short and pull the nipple inward.
Inverted Nipples have a grading classification system to determine
- The degree of inversion
- The likely effect on breastfeeding
- The best solution to correct the inverted nipple.
Grade1: Using your thumb and index finger to push and gently squeeze on the areola (Hoffman technique) can pull the nipple out. Once out, it may stay out for some period of time. Temperature, stimulation and breastfeeding can also bring the nipple out. Suction cups tend to work for some time.
Grade 2: The nipple is more difficult to pull out then grade 1. When inverted, the nipple tends to retract inwards. Suction cups can work but usually for limited amounts of time.
Grade 3: Difficult or impossible to pull the inverted nipple out.
Surgery can correct any grade of inversion.
"If I could give 6 stars I would!! Dr. Schwartz is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I have been researching breast augmentation doctors for the past three years and have been on numerous consultations. The minute I met with Dr. Schwartz, I knew I was in excellent hands. Dr. Schwartz treats you like a family member instead of a patient. He is very honest and really takes his time with you. Dr. S is an artist!!!! I was very scared of the pain for a breast aug because all my friends who had their boobs done said it feels like an elephant is sitting in their chest. Not to mention, I have the lowest pain tolerance ever!!!!!! ( accupuncture hurts me). I'm not sure the technique he uses, but I had ZERO pain and only took ibuprofen. The day after surgery I was shopping at home goods ( but not lifting anything). I was and am still blown away that I didn't have ANY pain!!!! My boobs look great and natural and I couldn't be any happier. I have now started going to Dr. Schwartz for my Botox and filler. He is amazing with that too. I can honestly go on and on about how great he is, but the truth is, you have to go see him for yourself. My first consultation he spent 2 hours with me and answered every question I had. The office staff is great too. Nicole and Dawn are amazing too."- L.W. / Yelp / May 30, 2018
"A Pain-Free, Easy Decision leaving me Confident and Happy! - As a busy working wife and mom of 2 toddlers I was extremely nervous about taking the time to do what I had carefully considered for years....getting a mommy makeover! So, I opted for one piece of that makeover, a breast augmentation. Working in the healthcare industry and meeting many surgeons along the way challenged me to be quite selective. Meeting Dr. Schwartz and his staff made my..."- S. / RealSelf / Apr 29, 2018

"botox for vaginismus - I've been dealing with vaginismus since 2012, and I quite honestly didn't even know it was called that until this procedure with Dr. Schwartz was featured on Buzzfeed. My previous gynecologist had merely told me it was a muscle spasm and that I needed physical therapy (which helped but did not work). My good friend had known I was dealing with it and sent me the video as soon as she saw it. I..."- C. / RealSelf / Apr 17, 2018
"Incredible work - I had a labiaplasty done with Dr. Schwartz and it's been day and night for me. Ive had insecurities about my vagina since I can even remember; always kind of nervous to have new partners, not really wanting a lot of light in the bedroom. This has been so liberating and the results are amazing. I had very thick tissue which did cause my recovery to be really extended and quite painful, but that..."- K. / RealSelf / Apr 02, 2018
INVERTED NIPPLE BREASTFEEDING
Inverted nipples can be more challenging during breastfeeding. Some things to help bring the baby latch on include, manual stimulation, nipple shields or breast shields that apply pressure on the nipple. Some find a breast pump also allows better milk flow.
After performing hundreds of Inverted Nipple Corrections, Board Certified Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jaime Schwartz prefers his signature technique. He makes a micro-incision at the base of the nipple to gain access to the tethering ducts and tissues. This allows him to gently release the areas putting downward pressure on the nipple. Once released, he closes off the base of the nipple and areola with a suture a designed to keep the nipple out while it heals. Most clients have this corrected in the office utilizing the Schwartz Rapid Recuperation™ technique which includes specialized local anesthesia to undergo the procedure without any discomfort. It usually takes less than an hour to correct an inverted nipple.
