Nipple correction surgery

We’re the UK’s most trusted weight loss & cosmetic surgery provider

Corrective surgery for a confident future

If you’re unhappy with the shape or size of your nipples, we can help.

Inverted nipples, enlarged nipples, or a large areola area around the nipple are conditions that are not uncommon so you’re not alone. They can be caused by pregnancy, breast feeding, trauma, or simply genetics. Whatever the reason for the appearance, nipple correction surgery may help to ease any discomfort or embarrassment caused by the look and feel of your nipples.

Our options include inverted nipple surgery, nipple lift surgery and areola reduction surgery. One of the leading cosmetic surgeons we work with can advise which nipple correction procedure is suitable for the results you want to achieve.

More details on nipple correction surgery


At The Hospital Group, we’re here to look after you. As UK market leaders in cosmetic surgery, we offer advice you can trust, treatment based on your individual needs, and support throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Nipple Correction Details

We want you to make a fully informed decision before you go ahead with surgery, so we offer a private consultation at your local clinic free of charge. At your consultation, you’ll meet with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss the nipple correction options available and whether the surgery is the most suitable procedure for your needs. You’ll be able to ask questions about all aspects of the surgery, from nipple lift, nipple reduction and aftercare to the results you can expect. You’ll also meet your patient care coordinator, who will be with you every step of the journey. They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale, our surgical facilities and door-to-door transport services.

At your consultation, you can book your surgery if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic surgery is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you a patient information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require patients to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about our surgeons’ qualifications, THG’s cosmetic surgery expertise and inspiring stories from some of our patients. Our patient care coordinators are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. There are various methods of surgery depending on whether you need to correct inverted nipples, reduce enlarged nipples or have an areola reduction. To correct inverted nipples, an incision is usually made at the base of the nipple to release the tissue that is causing the nipple to retract. Enlarged nipples can be reduced by removing part of the nipple tissue. The areola can be reduced by removing a circular part of the outer areola and bringing the surrounding skin inwards. Nipple correction surgery usually takes around one hour under local anaesthetic.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly. For nipple correction surgery you will normally be able to leave hospital on the same day following your procedure. Each patient is given a personalised care plan, developed with the advice of their surgeon. All THG hospitals are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and patient comfort. Following your surgery, it’s normal for your breasts to feel sore for a few days and we recommend that you take 1-2 days off work to give your body time to heal.
