An inverted nipple is a condition where the nipple instead of pointing outwards is retracted into the breast. It can be present since young (congenital) or it can be caused by breastfeeding, infections or as a sign of breast cancer. An inverted nipple can be graded from 1 to 3 depending on the severity of the retraction. A grade 3 inverted nipple is one in which the nipple is severely retracted and difficult to pull out. Inverted nipple surgery can help to restore the nipple to a beautiful and natural, projecting appearance.
During the initial consultation, patients will have the opportunity to discuss their goals and desirable results with the plastic surgeon. Every patient is different, therefore a specific treatment regimen is planned to suit an individual’s need.
