An inverted nipple is a condition in which the nipple is pulled inward into the breast instead of pointing outward.Surgery for inverted nipple correction is relatively simple. Your surgeon will cut around your nipple so that it’s free from the surrounding tissue, and re-stitch it so that it protrudes.

Inverted nipple surgery is usually performed under local or general anaesthetic. It is usually performed as day case surgery meaning you will be able to go home the same day as the procedure. The surgery takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours.

You will usually be able to go home later the same day, and can return to normal activities almost immediately but should restrain from heavy exercise for the first few weeks. You may be advised not to wear padded bras or tight tops for 10 – 14 days following surgery. This is to avoid compressing the nipple.
