As the crowning jewel of the breast, the nipple is considered a significant component of an aesthetically pleasing chest appearance. When the nipples project inward rather than outward, a condition known as inverted nipples, it can be cosmetically compromising and cause self-consciousness. Dr. Grover performs superior inverted nipple repair for clients who are unhappy with their breasts, delivering personalized, elegant results that are long-lasting and beautiful.


What is inverted nipple repair?

Inverted nipples are typically present at birth (congenital;) however, the condition can arise later in life as well due to injury, breastfeeding, or disease. Clients who discover their nipples have inverted suddenly should see a doctor to rule out any underlying medical concerns. The cause of inverted nipples is usually a constriction of tissue or truncated breast ducts underneath the nipples.

Inverted nipple repair is a simple in-office procedure to release the nipples and allow them to project outwards in a natural and appealing manner. Only local anesthesia is used, making this among the quickest and most convenient plastic surgery procedures. The entire treatment takes around 30 minutes for each side of the chest. Nipple symmetry can also be adjusted during the procedure.

What can inverted nipple repair achieve?

  • Reverses the projection of inward-facing nipples, allowing them to project outward organically
  • Releases constricted tissue that tethers the nipples inward
  • Improves nipple symmetry

Who is a good candidate for inverted nipple correction?

Ideal candidates for the procedure are unhappy with the appearance of flattened or irregular-looking nipples that face inward. They should be non-smokers who are physically and mentally healthy and who are free from any significant uncontrolled medical conditions. Lastly, clients should be realistic and positive in their outlook towards their results, based on a private consultation with Dr. Grover, a leading breast authority.

Can inverted nipple correction be combined with other procedures?

Yes, definitely. The procedure can be well-paired with breast augmentation, mastopexy, or breast reduction, as well as a mommy makeover or liposuction treatment. If you are interested in reducing downtime and overall costs by undergoing a combination of cosmetic procedures at the same time, let Dr. Grover know during your consultation.


How can I prepare for inverted nipple correction?

Dr. Grover will advise you as to the best methods of preparing for surgery during your consultation. This may include changes in your medication, engaging in a healthy diet and exercise routine, and getting adequate rest. During your initial visit, the doctor will perform a physical examination along with a detailed review of your medical history and a frank discussion of your goals for improvement.

What can I expect after inverted nipple repair?

Dr. Grover will provide detailed instructions for each patient, going over wound care, showering and bathing, sleeping, resuming exercise, and returning to work. In general, there is very little downtime associated with inverted nipple repair, and patients can expect little to no swelling or bruising. Our team will follow up with you, however, to ensure your recovery is swift and stress-free.
