Inverted Nipple Correction Surgery

By Dr. Randy Rudderman
In Plastic Surgery Articles

The discussion of inverted nipples can be a sensitive topic.  You may feel like you are the only one with this condition, but you are not alone. In America, 2 to 3% of women have at least one inverted nipple.

Nipple inversion can be present from birth, occur during puberty, following pregnancy and breastfeeding, be part of normal aging, occur with weight loss, or be related to trauma or other inflammatory problems of the breast.  Inverted nipples can not only make a woman self-conscious, but can also cause physical discomfort.  Inverted nipples can be difficult to conceal and some patients often avoid swimwear and athletic clothing for that specific reason.

Am I a good candidate for inverted nipple correction surgery?

If you have one or more of these concerns, you may be a candidate for this procedure.

  • Nipple(s) that sink into the areolar area of your breast
  • Skin irritation resulting from sunken nipples
  • Lack of stimulation with one or both nipples
  • One nipple looks significantly different from the other
  • Nipples remain flat or pointed even with stimulation
  • You feel your nipples just do not look normal
  • You’re self-conscious/embarrassed by your breast appearance
  • Nipple contour & asymmetry makes clothing selection difficult

What can this procedure do for me?

Patients who undergo this procedure achieve a more normal nipple projection.  This surgery corrects asymmetry and contour which achieves a more normal, healthy look. Schedule your complimentary consultation today, and see if you are a good candidate for inverted nipple correction surgery.
