Inverted Nipple Correction

Inverted nipple correction surgery is a quick, straight forward surgical procedure that focuses on the tissue and ducts in the breast area to help reshape and redefine the nipple. A small incision is made around the nipple to release the restrictive tissue and milk ducts, which are preventing the nipple from sitting naturally.

Inverted nipples are not an uncommon condition, in fact as many as 1 in 10 people suffer from it. Some people are simply born with it or it may occur during puberty, alternatively it’s frequently seen after mastitis or as a result of duct ectasia. However, that doesn’t make it any easier to live with. People may simply feel uncomfortable with the look of their nipples, for others it may cause pain or discomfort, whilst in more extreme cases it can prevent a mother breastfeeding her child.

Corrective surgery is a very simple and effective solution, performed under local anesthetic and usually taking no more than 30 minutes. As such, recovery is quick, but the effects are long lasting. For many people the procedure can have a profound effect on their lives, boosting self-confidence and body image.
