What can I expect the day of my Inverted Nipple Repair in Houston, Texas?
If inverted nipple repair is to be performed alone, it will likely be performed in the procedure room at The Oaks Plastic Surgery Clinic. When you arrive at The Oaks Plastic Surgery Clinic, you will be brought back to the procedure room. You will be given medication to make you comfortable and numbing cream will be placed to eliminate or minimize the pain of local anesthetic injections. Once you are completely numb, Dr. Danielle Andry or Dr. Nandi Wijay will perform the procedure. The procedure typically takes between 30 minutes and one hour to perform. Afterwards, you will have a very bulky dressing, which helps keep the nipples in the correct position and protects the repair. This dressing will be removed 5 - 7 days post operatively.
