Detached milk ducts:
This is a more common procedure and may even be necessary in more difficult cases. Local anesthesia and sedative will be applied for the procedure.
For this method, an incision is made at the nipple base, and shorted milk ducts are detached. This will allow a more *natural-looking projection of the nipple. The incision is then stitched up and medicated gauze is applied to the area.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure will take about one to two hours, depending on the technique used and the anatomy of the patient. *Post-procedure recovery takes about a week but patients may be back at work, days after.
