Dr. Lisa Hunsicker, our board-certified plastic surgeon, can evaluate patients to determine if this procedure is appropriate.
What is an inverted nipple?
Inverted nipples are more common than one may think. In fact, it is believed that approximately one out of 10 individuals may have one or more inverted nipples. This condition is often due to a short milk duct which can pull the nipple inward, eliminating the natural protrusion commonly seen. In most situations, it occurs gradually over time and become present during puberty when the breasts often transform due to hormonal changes in the body.
What can be done for an inverted nipple?
Most cases of inverted nipple can be corrected with plastic surgery solutions at Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics in Littleton, CO. Dr. Lisa Hunsicker will evaluate a patient to decide if they are a good fit for this procedure. During nipple inversion correction, the surgeon stretches or cuts the milk ducts to release the tension causing the nipple to pull inward. This results in the proper protrusion of the nipple. Both men and women often find that inverted nipple correction boosts their self-esteem and confidence, especially when it comes to their personal and intimate relationships.
Who is a candidate for inverted nipple correction?
Inverted nipple correction is often appropriate for both adult men and women who want to find a permanent solution to this deformity. It can also be performed for women who are having difficulty breastfeeding their baby or for both men and women who are self-conscious about the appearance of their nipples.
