Inverted Nipples are a fairly common problem women experience, particularly after childbirth and breast feeding. The correction is easily done as an office procedure. Often times inverted nipples are corrected in conjunction with a Louisville Breast Augmentation or Louisville Breast Reduction.
Inverted nipples can result from breast cancer so a mammogram and breast exam are an essential part of the work up before correction is undertaken.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia. Small incisions are made at the base of the nipple and the milk ducts that tether the nipple are released. Small sutures are then placed to keep the nipple in its’ new released position.
