Inverted Nipple Correction
Inverted nipples are usually completely harmless and typically appear from birth. Other causes include breastfeeding (this may damage the milk ducts and cause them to retract, pulling the nipples inward) or surgery (scar tissue from previous surgeries may lead to inversion).
When an inverted nipple becomes apparent later in life, it could be due to an underlying medical concern. An inverted nipple is recognised by it having a sunken appearance, as opposed to the nipple protruding outward from the surface of the skin. You may wish to have a procedure to correct an inverted nipple when it causes personal embarrassment or is obvious through clothing.
Inverted Nipple Correction Procedure
Anca Breahna is an experienced breast surgeon and understands how this condition can make a person feel uncomfortable about their appearance. The procedure for correcting an inverted nipple consists of Miss Breahna making a small incision to allow the nipple to be released from the constricting surrounding tissue. The nipple will be supported by a dressing as it heals so that it does not retract back to its previous state. This will usually take around a week to heal.
Benefits Of Inverted Nipple Correction
Improving the appearance of the nipples can help to regain lost self esteem and give your body confidence an overall boost. This concern can affect either one or both of the breasts, and by releasing an inverted nipple it contributes to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance to the breast or chest.Book a Consultation

Frequently asked questions
Am I suitable for inverted nipple surgery?
Miss Breahna will carry out a full and thorough consultation prior to surgery, at which time your overall health and suitability will be assessed. If you are considering undergoing correction via surgery, you will also be asked to contemplate other treatments which can help nipple inversion without surgery.
How safe is Nipple Correction surgery?
Miss Breahna is a skilled and experienced breast surgeon who takes your safety very seriously. If for any reason Miss Breahna feels your safety could be compromised, then she will not perform the surgery. Whilst no surgical procedure is 100% risk free, nipple correction surgery is overall deemed to be a safe procedure when carried out by an experienced surgeon.
Is Inverted nipple correction painful?
Miss Breahna will ensure your comfort prior to, during and after your surgery. The area will be numb during the procedure so you will not feel a thing. Post surgery, you may experience tenderness and bruising and you may need to take over the counter painkillers until this subsides, which usually takes just a few days.
Are there any side effects or risks?
The main downside of nipple inversion surgery is that you will not be able to breastfeed after having your surgery. This is because the milk ducts which carry the milk from the breast gland to the nipple will be divided during the operation. Other common side effects from Nipple Correction surgery are: tenderness, swelling, bruising and minor scarring. Less common effects can include infection and wound separation. However, all potential risks will be explained beforehand during your consultation.
How much recovery time is needed with nipple correction surgery?
Most people typically take around a week to heal from inverted nipple correction surgery, but you will need to treat the area with care for some weeks after.
