Surgical Inverted Nipple Correction

Many people are affected by inverted nipples, which is a condition where the nipple points inwards instead of out. While there might not be any real pain, discomfort, or medical urgency associated with this condition, it can still be upsetting to those who deal with it. The good news is that many individuals are unaware that a straightforward procedure performed under local anaesthetic can make a significant improvement to the appearance of the nipple.

If you’d like to learn more about nipple correction and how it can benefit you and restore your appearance, our team is standing by and ready to help. Simply reach out to our Glasgow call centre and set up your consultation at the Elanic clinic that is most convenient for you.

Correcting Your Inverted Nipple

Both men and women can be affected by inverted nipples, and up to 20 percent of those with the condition are born with it. Some can experience just one inverted nipple. For other patients, both nipples are permanently inverted. In some cases, the nipples can protrude when stimulated but will return back to their “inverted” position when left alone.

Whatever the case may be, our surgical team brings a high level of specialisation to each and every case. We’ll evaluate your condition and develop a plan that corrects it effectively, so you can enjoy the appearance you’d prefer.

What Causes Inverted Nipples?

Breastfeeding can cause nipple inversion, as can sudden or major weight loss, and rarely breast cancer, which is why at Elanic you will be seen by a surgeon with experience treating breast cancer patients so that this can be excluded.

Different Types of Inverted Nipples

Depending on the severity of your nipple inversion, various surgical techniques might be used to correct the condition. During your consultation, an expert member of our surgical staff will evaluate the nature of your inverted nipples and work with you to come up with a surgical solution that enables you to enjoy your preferred look.

Grade 1

This is the least severe form of nipple inversion. The nipple can be pulled outward with ease, especially in cold temperatures or when stimulated.

Grade 2

With Grade 2 inversion, pulling the nipple outward might be a bit more difficult, and it will quickly return to its inverted position.

Grade 3

More severe cases of nipple inversion involve a total lack of ability to pull the nipple outward, which can significantly hinder breastfeeding.
