There is no standard look for nipples. Up to 20% of the population is born with inverted or flat nipples. While breastfeeding may be more difficult for women with inverted nipples, it shouldn’t completely prevent it. If your inverted nipples cause you anxiety, corrective measures are available.

What is an Inverted Nipple?

Internal scar tissue causes some people to be born with their nipples pointing inward, not outward. While not necessarily considered a medical issue, it can be a source of insecurity and embarrassment.

Nipples Correction

Before recommending inverted nipple surgery, Dr. Nazarian suggests some daily exercises that help bring out inverted nipples. Patients can also wear one of two appliances; plastic shields or suction devices. Both apply mild pressure to the nipples to draw them out gradually. It takes a few weeks of constant wear to correct the problem.

Inverted Nipple Procedure

Surgery is the only way to fix inverted nipples permanently. There are two procedures Dr. Nazarian performs. The choice depends on the severity of your issue and whether or not you ever plan to breastfeed.

The Parachute Flap Technique

Dr. Nazarian applies local anesthesia to your breasts and cuts under the base of your nipple. She then lifts and sews your nipple into a bulging shape. Your milk ducts remain attached, and most patients report little to no change insensitivity.

Frequently
Asked Questions

Can Inverted nipples be corrected with surgery?

If exercises and devices fail to fix inverted nipples, there are two surgeries available. Each outpatient procedure takes about an hour to complete. The more common surgery detaches your milk ducts and prevents future breastfeeding. However, the parachute flap technique keeps your milk ducts connected.

What do you do if you have inverted nipples?

There are four popular techniques for correcting inverted nipples:

  • Manual exercises such as Hoffman’s technique
  • Suction devices and plastic shields
  • Piercings
  • Outpatient Surgery
Surgery has the longest lasting effects. None of these approaches affect nipple sensation. However, the procedure could hinder breastfeeding.

How much does inverted nipple surgery cost?

Health insurance doesn’t usually cover inverted nipple correction because it is considered a cosmetic procedure. Payment plans help you cover the $1,700-$6,000 price tag. This figure includes the doctor’s fee, as well as anesthesia, required garments, and follow-up visits.

What can cause a nipple to invert?

Nipple inversion is considered a normal breast variation, and most that have it are born with it. However, any disease, trauma, or condition that causes scar tissue to form behind the breast can cause the nipple to turn in and not become erect.
