What Is Inverted Nipple Correction?

Inverted nipple correction is a surgical procedure that corrects inverted nipples, which are nipples and areolas that turn inward instead of outward. This condition can be caused by several factors including genetics, breastfeeding, injury or scarring from previous surgery. While inverted nipples might not always present a physical risk, they can still have a significant impact on your quality of life that we do not underestimate. That is why we are proud to offer this procedure to patients in order to help them reclaim a full sense of pride in their bodies.

Our inverted nipple correction procedure can provide our patients with several significant benefits, including:
  • Restoration of a more natural appearance to the breasts

To determine if inverted nipple correction is right for you, please schedule a consultation with us to discuss your medical history and desired outcome.

Procedure Overview

During inverted nipple correction, the surgeon makes a small incision at the base of your nipple. The inverted nipple is then secured in an outward position using sutures, which provides the nipple with support and stability while it heals. The inverted nipple correction procedure typically takes one hour to complete, depending on the severity of the condition. However, each procedure may vary and depends on the unique cause of your situation.

What Is the Recovery Like for Inverted Nipple Correction

Your recovery time will depend greatly on your individual situation and the severity of the inverted nipple. Most patients experience moderate discomfort for a few days following inverted nipple correction and are able to return to regular activities within five to seven days. Our surgeon will provide full aftercare instructions which should be followed closely throughout the recovery period.

When Can I See Results?

Patients can expect to see some immediate improvements, but will need to wait for the swelling to go down before their results are fully apparent. You can expect to see the initial benefits once your recovery is over, with continued improvements in the following weeks. Your results should be permanent, but we recommend being careful and following all your post-procedure instructions to ensure your results stay looking their best.

Inverted nipples are a condition in which the entire nipple points inward instead of outward. It is common for women to have this condition with either one or both of their nipples. Adhesions beneath the nipples from milk ducts that bind the skin to the underlying tissues often cause nipples to invert. Luckily we have ways to correct the inverted nipple and restore normal anatomy! Pictured is a 67 year old patient few months after in office correction of inverted nipple deformity.

Our goal is to listen carefully, understand, and address your unique concerns, leaving you ecstatic about your results.
