Inverted Nipples

Inverted Nipples occur when the nipples do not have normal projection. In some cases the nipples are inverted only intermittently, however, in others the nipples are always inverted. The condition can be present on one or both sides.

Procedure
A small incision is placed at the base of the nipple and fibrous bands responsible for the inversion are divided. A temporary absorbable suture is then placed maintaining the nipple in the projected position.

Anesthesia
Local or local with IV sedation.

Operative Time
Approximately 30 minutes per side.

Risks
Although rare, recurrence and loss of sensation have been reported.

Recovery
Normal activities immediately. Near complete healing 2-3 weeks.
