Correcting Inverted Nipples

by | Jul 24, 2013

Correcting Inverted NipplesInverted (inward pointing) nipples are a fairly common occurrence in women, but being embarrassed by their appearance can negatively affect your self-confidence. Phoenix area cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richard Brown can correct this condition in conjunction with another breast surgery, such as breast augmentation, or perform the relatively minor nipple inversion correction surgery by itself.

Approximately 2% of women are affected by nipple inversion in one or both breasts. The causes of inverted nipples include:

  • Excessively short milk ducts
  • Scarring of the milk ducts
  • Narrow nipple base

With nipple inversion correction surgery, Dr. Brown will make a small incision at the base of the areola and release the tension from the milk ducts on your nipple. Following this procedure, you may have difficulty breastfeeding and can enjoy the body confidence of having natural-looking everted (outward pointing) nipples.
