Are you thinking about breast augmentation but wonder how your nipples will look after surgery? It’s a concern many women have, so they often ask their surgeon this question – Will breast augmentation affect nipple size. The nipples are located in the center of the nipple/areola complex, and the areola is the dark area of skin around the nipples.
Is breast augmentation right for you
If you would like bigger breasts, because you think that your breasts are naturally too small, breast augmentation may be right for you. Breast augmentation is also beneficial for moms wanting to restore breast volume, after pregnancy and breast feeding.
Will breast augmentation affect nipple size?
Many breast augmentation patients believe that making the breasts bigger will lead to an increase in the size of the nipple/areola complex. However, in most cases, there is no significant change in the size of the nipples after breast augmentation. The areola may look somewhat fuller after breast augmentation, but the size of the nipples are largely unchanged.
Patients undergoing breast augmentation also have other questions about how the procedure affects nipples, including the following:
- Can breast augmentation fix inverted nipples?
Yes, breast augmentation can correct some cases of inverted nipples. Inverted or retracted nipples can occur due to various factors. Depending on the cause and the severity of the nipple inversion, breast augmentation surgery can fix this issue.
- Will breast augmentation affect breastfeeding?
Most women are able to breastfeed without difficulty after breast augmentation.
