Inverted Nipple Correction

Shortening of the milk ducts, especially after breast feeding, can lead to nipple retraction below the skin level. Affecting up to 20% of women and men, this condition is often perceived as unattractive by our patients. Its surgical correction is a simple and straight-forward procedure, which can be combined as well with a reduction of the areola, which is a correlating condition to inverted nipple in some cases.
