Inverted Nipple Correction

Having inverted nipples, nipples that point inwards, is a relatively common condition that can be rectified by surgery.

The procedure and technique used will be dependent upon the degree of nipple inversion. In some cases, surgery may not be needed. In the mildest forms, a suction device can be used to turn the nipple outwards (evert the nipple). Sometimes an incision in the breast tissue can help to rectify the problem.

Some patients may have one inverted nipple, for others both nipples are inverted.

It is always best to get expert medical advice for an accurate diagnosis and treatment recommendations for your particular circumstances.

Inverted nipples are caused by excess connective tissue which can lead to the shortening of the milk ducts as they come into the nipple. Breast surgery which helps release or partially divide the milk duct is one of the key elements of correction. This usually involves making an incision and drawing the nipple out to protrude in the desired fashion.
