What are inverted nipples?

Sometimes nipples are inverted or stuck in and wont come out. This may be a problem on one side of both. Occasionally this may be a sign of breast disease, although not often.

What can be done?

Inverted nipples can be corrected, that is released so that they can come out. This is a short procedure under local anaesthetic (awake with an injection to numb the skin) and you can go home as soon as you are ready.

What happens now?

Before the procedure you will be assessed and advised by a UK-trained Consultant Plastic Surgeon. This assessment includes taking a full medical history and breast history and examining you in the company of one of our nurses. We will go through what nipple correction involves, including the potential risks and complications. You will be offered a second appointment, to give you a chance to ask any further questions and prepare you for surgery, but this is not usually necessary.

What does inverted nipple correction involve?

There are a number of different ways to correct inverted nipples. These involve releasing the breast milk ducts to allow the retracted nipple to come out. The skin is then closed with dissolving stitches and a waterproof dressing applied.

What are the downsides to inverted nipple correction?

It is unusual to have problems after inverted nipple correction. There is a small risk of infection, bleeding, slow healing and poor scars. Nipple occasionally invert again after release and need re-release. Dividing the milk ducts means breast feeding will probably not be possible afterwards.

Are there any alternatives to nipple correction?

Suction devices can work and are sometimes permanent. Trying these first does no harm.
