Chirurgie du mamelon et de l’aréole

Flat or inverted nipples, reconstruction of the NAC

There are many problems of the areola and nipple that may require surgical intervention. Flat or inverted nipples make breast-feeding extremely difficult and spoil the aesthetic appearance of the breast. At the other extreme, very large nipples (hypertrophic) are also a problem as they are too prominent under clothing. Lastly, reconstruction of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) after a mastectomy or a trauma, is the final touch to give the reconstructed breast a natural appearance. There is also a surgical solution for very large or asymmetrical areolas.
