Questions and Answers

Nipples Facing Outwards 2 Years After Silicone Implants.

This post originally appeared on Realself.com.

Both my nipples are not longer centered faceing outwards? Is this normal and can it be corected? I want to have larger implants put in but I do not want this to occur again.

Medial crescent pexy to correct nipple position
Outward nipple position can be exaggerated after breast augmentation. This can sometimes be corrected by repositioning the implant. However, the easiest way to improve the nipple position is to remove a crescent of skin on the inside of the nipple-areola complex to "pull" the nipple more inwards (medial crescent pexy). This leaves a small scar around the inner border of the areola which usually heals very well being in the margin of the areola. Nipple sensation should not be affected. This could easily be done at the same time as your implant exchange.
