What Is Nipple Inversion Correction?

Nipple inversion correction is a procedure to address the condition where one or both nipples are retracted into the breast instead of protruding outward. This minimally invasive procedure is typically performed in the office under local anesthesia and does not require general anesthesia. We release the tissues during the procedure, causing the inversion and allowing the nipple to protrude naturally. While nipple inversion correction can be done independently, it's often recommended to perform it separately from other breast surgeries to optimize blood flow and ensure successful outcomes. After the procedure, the nipples are typically protected with a dressing provided by the clinic for several weeks to promote proper healing.

Is Nipple Inversion Correction Right for Me?

Ideal candidates for nipple inversion correction may experience inverted or retracted nipples, which can cause functional or aesthetic concerns. Symptoms may include difficulty with breastfeeding, embarrassment or self-consciousness about the appearance of the nipples, or discomfort due to irritation or chafing. If you're experiencing these issues and seeking a solution, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Ascentist Plastic Surgery. During this appointment, we can assess your unique situation, including your desires, concerns, and medical history, to determine if nipple inversion correction is the correct choice for your needs.

What to Expect: The Nipple Inversion Correction Procedure

During an inverted nipple correction, the patient is typically administered local anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the process. We carefully make small incisions at the base of the nipple to access the underlying tissue. Depending on the severity of the inversion, there are various techniques we may employ to release the tethering tissues and allow the nipple to protrude naturally. These techniques may involve dividing, constricting ducts, or releasing scar tissue. Once the corrective measures are completed, the incisions are closed with sutures. The procedure typically takes around 15 minutes per side. While some patients may experience mild discomfort or pressure during the procedure, local anesthesia helps minimize pain. The power behind nipple inversion correction lies in our ability to release the structures causing the inversion, allowing the nipple to project outward. This process can restore a more natural and symmetrical appearance to the breasts, improving both function and aesthetics.

Nipple Inversion Correction Recovery

Following nipple inversion correction, patients can expect minimal downtime and discomfort. While some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort may occur initially, these effects should subside within a few days. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities for about a week to allow for proper healing. Keeping the treated area clean and dry is essential, as is following any specific postoperative instructions we provide. A dressing may be applied to protect the nipples, which should be worn for several weeks to promote optimal healing. Most patients can return to normal daily activities within a few days. However, strenuous exercise and activities that may put pressure on the breasts should be avoided for a bit longer. Regular follow-up appointments with Ascentist Plastic Surgery will be scheduled to monitor healing progress and ensure the best possible outcome.
