Surgical Correction of Inverted Nipples

The 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 who seek surgical assistance. Its surgical correction is a simple and straight-forward procedure, which can be combined with a reduction of the areola, a correlating condition to inverted nipple in some cases.

The surgical technique

A short incision at the nipple base, the release of the shortened ducts and closure with a specialised suture technique. Occasionally some fat is injected to prevent the reconnection of the ducts and recurrence of the condition.

Where is the scar?

At the base of the nipple, practically invisible.

Procedure related risks

There are non-specific risks that are connected to any kind of surgical procedures, such as hematoma, infection, or seroma, for example. There is a small risk of recurrence, in which case, further correction is necessary.


Non-surgical applications (such as vacuum-assisted devices) are generally less effective and may not provide any lasting results.
