Nipple Inversion

Nipple inversion is a relatively common condition, and unfortunately, women with inverted nipples suffer embarrassment for years, only to find out that the condition is easily corrected with simple plastic surgery.

Nipple inversion means the nipple puckers inward instead of projecting outward, and as long as it’s present from puberty, the condition is nothing to worry about. It can easily be corrected with a minor procedure that releases the tissue tethering the nipple inward. A single stitch is placed to keep the nipple everted, or raised, and this suture dissolves in about 2 weeks.

Should you have nipples that appear normal and develop an inversion of one or both nipples after puberty, you should have your breasts promptly and carefully evaluated, as this could indicate breast disease or even cancer.
