Inverted Nipple Correction

Most people have nipples that protrude (stick out). When a nipple is inverted, it means that it lies flat against the body or is “turned-in”. While not a serious medical problem, sometimes people choose to have an inverted nipple corrected to give a more regular appearance.

Inverted nipples can occur naturally, with weight change, pregancy and breastfeeding. Correction can be done through a small incision at the lower edge of the nipple to divide the tight structure pulling the nipple inwards.

Once released, the nipple is held in a raised position with a suture (stitch). The sutures used to close the incision are dissolvable.
