Is Inverted Nipple Surgery right for me?

Nipple correction surgery is a routinely performed and safe option that addresses inverted nipples under local anesthesia, taking around 15-20 min to treat each nipple that appears to have an indentation in its center. Nipple inversion occurs in varying degrees, defined on how easily may be protracted and the degree of existent fibrosis in the breast.

The main types of nipple inversion are:

  • Grade I refers to nipples with minimal retraction that can be easily pulled out by using finger pressure or a suction device to project the nipple normally.
  • Grade II has moderate degree of tissue fibrosis. This is the most common type of nipple inversion, which can be corrected through a tiny incision at the base of the nipple to release fibrous tissue that holds the nipple in its inverted position. 
  • Grade III describes as a severely inverted and retracted nipple that cannot project at all due to remarkable fibrosis of soft tissue underneath and around the nipple. Surgery is a definite solution to fix this problem.
