Inverted nipple correction is done for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Inverted nipples are usually caused by tethering of the ducts that are within the nipples to the underlying tissues. These tight ducts are released surgically, allowing the tip of the nipple to evert above the skin. The scar is nearly invisible.

Our Preferences:

Depending on the severity of the nipple inversion, we will either release some or most of the ducts tethering the nipple, occasionally an autologous material such as a dermal graft or fat graft may be required. We use dissolving sutures so patients don’t have to go through the stitch removal process.
