Inverted nipple surgery, also known as inverted nipple correction is a simple yet effective procedure performed for cosmetic as well as functional reasons. These treatments are especially chosen by moms with flat or inverted nipples who can potentially have a problem when wanting to breastfeed their babies.
What Are Inverted Nipples?
This is a condition in which the nipple is pulled and pointing inward into the breast, instead of pointing outward, away from the chest. This condition is also known as nipple retraction or nipple inversion. This may be caused by trauma, disease or congenital. An inverted nipple can occur on one or both breasts and it's estimated that 9 to 10 percent of women have at least one inverted nipple.
Suddenly inverting nipples can be a cause for concern as it can be a sign for breast cancer if the patient is not pregnant and has not suffered any trauma to the bust region – it's better to have a routine check straight away.
Inverted nipple surgery is usually performed for three main reasons:
● Inverted nipple surgery for functional reasons
The condition of the nipple becomes extremely important especially during the lactation period after pregnancy. Many women suffer from breastfeeding problems due to inverted nipples and the surgery is the only way to ensure breastfeeding functionality.
● Inverted nipple surgery for cosmetic reasons
Women may feel more attractive with protruding nipples instead of the inverted ones. Some women turn to inverted nipple surgery after having their nipples inverted during or after pregnancy.
● Inverted nipple surgery for psychological reasons
Women with an inverted nipple may feel somehow missing or less feminine because of this condition. Likewise, the asymmetry of the breasts can affect women's self-confidence and overall quality of life.
Inverted nipple surgery or inverted nipple correction is recommended for patients with nipple retraction or nipple inversion.
