Inverted Nipple Surgery
Are one or both of your nipples inverted? Do you want a natural, pointy look to your nipples? Are you struggling to breast feed and as a result bond with your child? Inverted Nipple Surgery is the procedure of reversing inverted nipples and returning them to a more authentic, functioning and ordinary state.
There are three degrees of nipple inversion.
- The nipple is inverted under the aerola but can be manipulated to protrude. The nipple then retracts again, normally after a few minutes. This is commonly suitable enough for breast feeding.
- The nipple is inverted and must be forcefully manipulated to temporarily protrude. Breast feeding can be made possible with surgery on the milk ducts.
- The nipple remains inverted even with extensive stimulation. Surgery is required to rebalance the muscle pull.
The goal of Inverted Nipple Surgery is to create a nipple which compliments your figure and results in an improved quality of life.
