Inverted Nipple Correction in Carmel

Inverted nipples can drastically affect the appearance of your breasts, causing feelings of distress and self-consciousness for some individuals. Whether your inverted nipples occurred naturally or as a result of breastfeeding, injury, or other factors, Greenwald Plastic Surgery offers a solution to improve the contour of your breasts through inverted nipple correction. Learn more below.

Understanding Inverted Nipples

Inverted nipples either lay flat or point inwards rather than protruding outward and can be categorized as follows:

Grade 1: Nipples in this category can be manually manipulated to project outwards and may still allow for relatively easy breastfeeding.

Grade 2: Grade 2 inverted nipples describe milk ducts that are retracted inwards. These may require more effort to maintain projection, and once pointing outward, they retract quickly.

Grade 3: Grade 3 inverted nipples do not project at all, even with manual manipulation. These cases are associated with discomfort and other issues and require surgical correction.

What Causes Inverted Nipples?

Various factors, such as age-related breast changes, infections, and breastfeeding, can contribute to the development of inverted nipples. While inverted nipples do not necessarily indicate cancer, especially those that have always been inverted, sudden changes in their appearance could warrant further testing.

Nipple Correction Procedure

At Greenwald Plastic Surgery, surgical correction offers a reliable and effective solution for improving the projection of inverted nipples. The procedure begins with a small incision near the base of the nipple, through which the milk ducts can be accessed and identified. Any fibrous tissue causing the nipples to invert is released. Stitches may be placed to provide the necessary support for the nipple to remain in a projected position. This procedure can take one hour or less with minimal associated downtime. Dr. Greenwald will be with you at every step to ensure you experience a successful recovery.

Comprehensive Cosmetic Improvement

Age can be a contributing factor to inverted nipples as well as a host of other cosmetic issues that affect the breast. Dr. Greenwald takes this into account as he develops your personalized treatment plan, which will include procedures to address multiple concerns simultaneously. For example, if you are bothered by breast sagging, a breast lift, in addition to inverted nipple correction, can provide comprehensive and dramatic results.
