Dr Moncrieff uses specialised nipple surgery techniques to create or reshape the nipple to one that is better balanced to the breast shape.
He combines nipple reshaping with breast augmentations, lifts and reductions. It is not offered as a stand-alone procedure.
The cost for nipple reshaping depends on the need for surgery. Our team can help explain this to you.
Only in the instance of an inverted nipple. The Medicare item number is 31563 (to check with your fund).
All surgery is serious and you need to weigh up the potential benefits with the risks.
There are two main categories of risks to consider when considering nipple reshaping surgery.
The first category of risks apply to all forms of major surgery and include: infection, bleeding and an adverse reaction to the anaesthetic.
The next category of risks which are more specific to nipple reshaping include: change in sensation or loss of sensation in the nipples, delayed wound healing (including death of tissue), asymmetry and in rare cases, loss of the nipple.
Your surgeon will discuss these risks, and how you can reduce them before and after surgery, in your consultation. You will also be given written material covering these risks.
More information about the risks of plastic surgery and broader general surgery can be found on our dedicated risks page.
It is not offered as a stand-alone procedure.
He does however combine nipple reshaping with breast augmentations, lifts and reductions.
For augmentations, nipple reshaping may be performed after the initial surgery to minimise stretching of the scars. Dr Moncrieff will recommend either a combined or staged approach upon assessing you in a consultation and discussing your goals.
For lifts and reductions it is always performed as part of the main surgery.
