What is an Inverted Nipple?

Nipples can lose their projection due to a number of reasons including breast feeding, trauma, ageing (breast sagging) or after major weight loss. Both male and females can have them. Some people are born with them or develop them gradually over time. If a nipple inverts suddenly this could be a sign of infection, injury or another issue for which medical advice should be sought.

How can it be treated?

Inverted nipples do not usually go away on their own. Surgery is an option if you are concerned about the appearance of inverted nipples. The procedure can be done under local anaesthesia. This involves a vertical cut in the areola in the bottom of the nipple in order to create a triangular tongue of tissue to be placed under the nipple and sutured to the opposite side. The cut is then closed with some dissolvable sutures.

What is the recovery like?

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and you will be able to go home straight after your procedure. The protective dressing will be removed after one week when we would expect the wound to have healed. Most patients will be able to commence their normal activities after a week from the surgery.

What are the potential complications?

Although complications following surgery are rare, the main drawback is the inability to breast feed following this operation. The ducts that connect the nipple opening to the breast glands (milk ducts) will have to be cut in order to correct the inversion.

The second possible problem is altered nipple sensation. This can be temporary or permanent! The procedure is carried out by our expert plastic surgeon under local anaesthesia (numbing injection) and the cost is as follows:

Recurrence of the inversion is possible after surgery. However, this technique has demonstrated good long-term correction.

We pride ourselves on providing aftercare 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year by our dedicated doctor following your procedure until full recovery.

For the peace of your mind we confirm that all these surgical conditions at Renew Skin and Health Clinic, are operated by highly experienced & accredited plastic surgeons who are on GMC’s specialist register..
