Nipple inversion is a fairly common condition affecting approximately 10-20% of women. Although usually completely harmless, some women with the condition become self-conscious over their appearance. Inverted nipple correction is a quick and often very successful procedure to correct nipple inversion.
Inverted nipples can usually be corrected by a 30 minute procedure and very little downtime. Most patients are able to return to work the following day after treatment and regular physical activity within a week.
What causes nipple inversion?
Nipple inversion can be down to genetics and may be present from birth, or some nipples which appear to be inverted but protrude with stimulation are often referred to as ‘shy’. Bodily changes can sometimes be the cause of nipple inversion, for instance after pregnancy when the skin around the nipple may become more loose as a result of breastfeeding. Typically inverted nipples occur as a result of the milk ducts being too short or too tight.
Inverted nipples which develop suddenly or later in life, when a cause is not generally obvious (for example breastfeeding or surgery), should always be checked by a medical doctor. This is to ensure there is no underlying health concern.
How can inverted nipples be corrected?
Inverted nipple correction seeks to release the nipple from the milk ducts via stretching or in some cases, cutting. Various techniques can be used to improve and correct nipple inversion. All available treatment options will be discussed with the patient during an initial consultation.
Inverted nipple correction with Refresh clinic is usually performed under local anaesthetic and can take as little as 20 minutes to perform. Doctor Fazel will usually make an incision at the base of the nipple before separating or stretching the milk ducts using internal stitches.
Inverted nipple correction can also be combined with other breast procedures such as breast augmentation or fat transfer. These procedures help to add volume to the breast tissue and can limit the possibility of the nipple becoming inverted once again.
Who is suitable for inverted nipple correction?
Although inverted nipple correction is a quick and usually straightforward procedure, care should be taken before deciding if this procedure is right for you. If you have not yet had children and wish to breastfeed when the time comes, most surgeons recommend waiting until after childbirth and breastfeeding before seeking treatment for nipple inversion.
Breastfeeding can be difficult and sometimes not possible after inverted nipple correction. However many women with inverted nipples find difficulty breastfeeding in the first place. Those with inverted nipples who choose to seek treatment, often find the benefits from surgery outweigh the risks and disadvantages.
The inverted nipple correction procedure will be fully discussed during an initial consultation, along with any potential side effects and risks.
