What Is Inverted Nipple Correction? 

Inverted nipple correction is a surgical procedure designed to address the condition of inverted or retracted nipples, which can cause functional and aesthetic concerns for individuals. This procedure aims to release the tethering tissues and reshape the nipple to achieve a more natural projection, allowing patients to feel more confident and comfortable with the appearance of their breasts.

Understanding Inverted Nipple Repair

During inverted nipple repair, our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joshua B. Hyman, employs specialized techniques to release the constricted tissue that causes the nipple to invert. This may involve making small incisions to access the underlying tissue and carefully releasing the tethering fibers. In some cases, a supporting graft or internal stitches may be used to help maintain the corrected position of the nipple.

Dr. Hyman will provide detailed post-operative instructions to support optimal healing and may recommend wearing a protective dressing or specialized nipple shield during the initial recovery phase. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days and can expect to see the final results of the procedure as the healing process progresses.
