Inverted Nipple Surgery

Inverted or "shy" nipples, in which one or both of the nipples pull inside rather than outward, are thought to affect 10–20% of women. A simple procedure that may be performed with local anaesthetic surgery will fix the issue.

Inverted Nipple Surgery

Your nipple will be released from the surrounding tissue after your surgeon makes a cut under it. A tiny splint is used to maintain the nipple in a protruding position after a stitch is fastened and placed around it. For roughly one week, the stitch and splint must be worn. A gauze dressing may be applied.

Inverted Nipple Surgery FAQ

After inverted nipple correction surgery, are the results permanent?2023-04-10T12:11:29+01:00

The outcomes of surgical procedures are permanent, however, circumstances like pregnancy and weight gain can change the results.

Can inverted nipple surgery be combined with a breast enlargement?2024-01-18T17:51:10+00:00

Inverted nipple surgeries commonly occur together with breast enlargement surgeries.

Is breastfeeding possible after an inverted nipple surgery?2024-01-18T17:50:23+00:00

When the milk ducts, which frequently pull the nipples inward during surgery, are separated, we advise waiting until after this time if you haven’t yet finished your family. This can make breastfeeding challenging. It is a good idea to ask your surgeon about breastfeeding during your consultation to understand more.

Will the inverted nipple repair procedure cause me to lose sensation?2023-04-10T12:28:38+01:00

After surgery, your nipple sensitivity might shift slightly, but once you’re healed, everything should go back to normal, and the nipple will respond to touch and cold as usual.
