Inverted nipples are a common condition in one or both breasts. An inverted nipple occurs when the nipple does not protrude from the breast mound or areola, instead the nipple is retracted inward or “inverted.” This is caused when the lactiferous ducts or milk ducts are short. Inverted nipples present at birth, or can be caused by trauma, or disease. Our surgeons will work to evaluate each individual’s anatomy to determine the optimal treatment. During your consultation, our board-certified surgeons will work with you to determine if a nipple inversion correction surgery is right for you. Contact us to schedule a consultation!
Nipple Inversion Correction Procedure
During your consultation, our board-certified surgeons will work with you to create a customized treatment plan based on your anatomy and goals. During the surgery, the lactiferous ducts or milk ducts are divided to allow the nipple to project outward. This cosmetic correction may make breastfeeding difficult or impossible. As a result, our surgeons do not always recommend this surgery for individuals wishing to breastfeed in the future.
Recovery & Results
Our team will discuss all aspects of your procedure and recovery during your consultation. The recovery period is relatively brief with patients returning to normal activity after one to two days. Once complete healing has occurred, the very small incisions used to divide the milk ducts are very difficult to identify. Our surgeons will also work alongside you to carefully instruct you on proper post-procedure care to help ensure optimal healing and results. *
