Asked Questions

Can You Have Surgery to Fix Inverted Nipples?

If you have inverted nipples, you can have minor surgery to bring them out. Inverted nipple surgery is a short, simple procedure that can help you feel more confident in the way your chest and nipples look. While there are nonsurgical ways to make your nipples protrude, these methods are only temporary. Going to a board-certified plastic surgeon for inverted nipple surgery can provide you with a permanent solution to your problem.

How Will a Doctor Diagnose an Inverted Nipple?

Your doctor will ask about your medical history and then examine your breasts and nipples. They may order a mammogram or sonogram to get accurate internal images of your breasts and nipples. Some doctors may even order an MRI. If you tell your doctor that the nipple inversion is new, your doctor may order further tests to delineate the cause.

How Long Does Inverted Nipple Surgery Take?

The simple procedure typically lasts less than an hour. There are two surgical options. Your plastic surgeon may choose to use the parachute-flap technique or the detached-duct technique. The parachute-flap technique leaves the part of your milk duct system in place. Although not guaranteed, the parachute-flap technique may help patients be able to breastfeed a baby. The detached-duct technique decreases the ability to breastfeed in the future. You should be able to leave the physician’s office two hours after the surgery.

Does Inverted Surgery Hurt?

Nipple surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure. If the nipple surgery is combined with other procedures, you may be placed under general anesthesia.

How Much Does Inverted Nipple Surgery Cost?

Inverted nipple surgery costs between $2,000 and $6,000. Since it is considered cosmetic surgery, health insurance will not cover the procedure. If you are considering inverted nipple surgery, consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon about the cost associated with the procedure. The price may vary by surgeon experience and geographic location.

Why Do My Nipples Sink In?

Inverted nipples may be caused by milk ducts that are short and tight, pulling the nipple inwards.

Are Inverted Nipples Inherited?

Inverted nipples are usually genetic. If you have a short, thickened, or underdeveloped milk duct, you are more likely to have inverted nipples. If breast tissue is connected extremely tightly to the inside of the nipple, it can pull the skin inward and make the nipples lie flat against the breasts. This causes inverted nipples. Sometimes nipples become inverted because of inflammation. The inflammation shortens the milk ducts and fibrous tissue inside the nipple. In rare cases, inverted nipples are a symptom of cancer. For this reason, you should schedule a full breast exam with a board-certified physician who performs breast or plastic surgery.

How Do I Make My Inverted Nipples Come Out?

One non-surgical technique involves using suction pumps to cause the nipple to come out. Some people choose to get their nipples pierced. The jewelry keeps the nipples held out. Plastic devices called breast shells are sometimes placed inside bras. Breast shells place pressure around the base of the nipples, forcing them to stick out. Breast shells and suction pumps are only temporary fixes. Piercing your nipples has its risks as well. Inverted nipple surgery offers a simple and permanent solution.

How Long Does It Take for Inverted Nipple Surgery to Heal?

After inverted nipple surgery, it takes about two weeks to completely heal. You can immediately return to work as you continue the healing process. Avoid vigorous physical activity for one to two weeks. Within one or two weeks, you should feel ready to begin your normal exercise routine. After the procedure, your plastic surgeon will place a protective device and bandage over your nipple. They may tell you to keep the bandage in place for about four to six weeks to prevent external pressure from causing the nipple to invert again.

What Are Inverted Nipple Surgery Risks?

Inverted nipple surgery is an extremely safe procedure. It is performed in-office and is done solely for cosmetic reasons. After the surgery, you may experience swelling and sensitivity. As with all cosmetic procedures, there are other risks involved. These include bleeding, bruising and infection. If you experience any unusual symptoms, contact your surgeon right away.
