Inverted Nipple Correction

The appearance of the body can be sensitive to many people, especially when they are affected by a concern that is not considered the norm, such as inverted nipples. This condition is often present at birth, and describes nipples that do not protrude from the breast, but lie flat or retract inwards.

Chester Cosmetic Surgery can eliminate this concern with inverted nipple correction; a procedure that can address one or both of the nipples. This surgery is often considered when other forms of correction (such as Niplette suction device) have proved unsuccessful. During the procedure a small cut is made in the outer border of the nipple. This allows for the ducts to be stretched or divided, releasing constricted tissue so the nipples can protrude. The nipple may then need to have sutures or a special dressing applied to hold the nipple in place while it heals.

Women who consider inverted nipple correction can often be worried that they will not be able to breastfeed after having this surgery. This will be discussed at the consultation, and will depend on the extent of the concern and the technique that will be used. However in many cases, the concern itself can be the cause of difficulty when breastfeeding.

Frequently asked questions

Discussing your concerns at a pre-treatment consultation will establish if the procedure will be a suitable option. Both men and women can benefit from this procedure when they are affected by inverted nipples, as it creates a more natural look to the breasts.

This is a very safe procedure and one that Miss Breahna has undertaken many times. If it is felt that the surgery will compromise your health and / or well-being Chester Cosmetic Surgery will not recommend it for you.

As the procedure will cause some degree of pain, you will be given the most appropriate form of anaesthesia, which is usually a local anaesthetic.

The main side effect to consider when having inverted nipple correction is the inability to breastfeed, as the procedure involves the division of the milk ducts. Swelling and bruising is to be expected after the procedure. There may also be a scar left behind, but this usually goes unnoticed. Occasionally the nipple can invert again, but for many patients only 1 procedure is required.

As this is a fairly straightforward procedure the nipples usually heal quite quickly. You can expect the full outcome to be visible within 4-6 weeks.
