Some patients who have had inverted nipples since birth or develop them later in life, feel self-conscious over their appearance. It’s important to note that inverted nipples that appear suddenly and for no apparent reason, should always be assessed by your GP to ensure there are no underlying health concerns. The condition affects approximately 10-20% of women, but is often completely harmless.
Inverted nipple correction may take as little as 30 minute. It involves releasing the nipple from the milk ducts which are likely too tight. There is very little downtime with this procedure, so you’ll be able to return to work the next day.

What causes nipple inversion?
The cause of inverted nipples could be down to genetics, or as a result of bodily changes for example after childbirth or fluctuating weight. The nipple usually looks inverted when the milk ducts are too tight. Sometimes, the nipple may just be ‘shy’ and protrudes only with stimulation.
If the nipple suddenly becomes inverted and is not a result of breastfeeding or surgery, it’s advisable to speak to a medical doctor before seeking inverted nipple correction.
How do you correct inverted nipples?
In cases where the milk ducts are too tight, a simple operation can be carried out to release the nipple that is being pulled inwards. This is usually done by stretching the milk ducts, or where necessary, cutting.
Doctor Fazel uses various techniques to correct inverted nipples. All possible options will be discussed at a preliminary consultation. The most common surgical procedure involves making an incision at the base of the nipple, before separating or stretching the milk ducts using internal stitches. The procedure is quick and can be completed under local anaesthetic.
Inverted nipple correction can also be carried out as part of another breast surgery procedure. Some patients choose a fat transfer or breast augmentation to add volume to the breast tissue, which also minimises the chances of the nipples becoming inverted once again.
Does inverted nipple correction work for everyone?
Each person’s circumstances are different and that’s why we invite you to attend an initial consultation. We’ll assess your suitability for inverted nipple correction and make sure you are aware of any risks associated with the treatment.
Inverted nipple correction may not be suitable for everyone. For anyone wishing to breastfeed, it is advisable to wait until after you have had children and finished breastfeeding, before you consider correcting inverted nipples. This is because the milk ducts may be severed if necessary to release the nipple, and therefore it may not be possible to breastfeed after the procedure.
In all situations, Doctor Fazel will attempt to preserve the milk ducts without the need for cutting. It should be considered that some patients with inverted nipples may have difficulty breastfeeding naturally though.
How much does it cost to correct inverted nipples?
Correction for inverted nipples at Refresh by Fazel starts at £1800. During the pre-treatment consultation, you will be able to meet Doctor Fazel, discuss the options for treatment and ask any questions you might have. You will be provided with all available treatment options and can discuss expectations for results.
