Inverted Nipples / Nipple Concerns

Inverted Nipples / Nipple Concerns

Inverted nipples, also known as retracted nipples, do not protrude from the breast. Instead, they lie flat, or point inward. They are usually present from birth as they are mainly caused by an underdeveloped nipple base or milk ducts, which will have occurred in the womb. Inverted nipples can affect both men and women, and may affect either one or both of the breasts. In many cases, inverted nipples will protrude when manually or sexually stimulated, or when exposed to cold temperatures; however, it’s not uncommon for people to find they stay inverted permanently. When inverted nipples develop as a person gets older, it’s often due to an underlying medical condition which will need to be investigated. This may include: trauma, tissue inflammation, breastfeeding, tumour or infection.

Large nipples / areola, are other commonly treated nipple concerns at Chester Cosmetic Surgery. Enlarged nipples and / or areola often occur naturally. They are most likely to cause an aesthetic concern, appearing bigger and more prominent than one would like. For some, the nipples and areola may change size and shape if the breasts also change size; such as during pregnancy, when breastfeeding, during hormonal fluctuations or from having gained weight. People affected by large nipples can often feel self-conscious of their appearance, especially if the nipples tend to be quite protruding and are visible through clothing. This aspect can lead to sore nipples if they then rub regularly against fabric.

Treating inverted nipples / nipple concerns at Chester Cosmetic Surgery will require an initial consultation. In order to recommend the right approach we’ll need to identify the possible cause. Treatment options include inverted nipple correction or nipple and areola reduction, where we will perform the most suitable techniques to achieve your goal.
