The Inverted Nipple Correction Procedure with Dr. Sof


Considering inverted nipple correction to address concerns with nipple inversion and improve breast aesthetics? Discover what to expect when you choose Dr. Sofiane Rimouche for your inverted nipple correction journey:

Consultation and Evaluation: Your inverted nipple correction journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sof. During this initial meeting, Dr. Sof will listen attentively to your concerns, assess the severity of your nipple inversion, and discuss your goals for the correction procedure. He will perform a thorough examination to determine the most suitable techniques tailored to your needs.

Preparation: On the day of your inverted nipple correction procedure, you’ll arrive at the surgical facility prepared for your surgery. Dr. Sof and his team will ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed before administering anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Surgical Technique: Dr. Sof will employ specialized surgical techniques to release the tissues causing nipple inversion and restore a natural, outward projection to the nipples. Depending on the severity of the inversion and your individual anatomy, Dr. Sof may utilise various approaches, such as the release of constricting bands or tissue grafting, to achieve the desired outcome.

Release of Constricting Bands: In cases where tight bands of tissue are causing nipple inversion, Dr. Sof will perform a release procedure to free the nipple and allow it to project outward. This involves carefully cutting the constricting bands to release tension and allow the nipple to assume its natural position.

Tissue Grafting: For cases of severe nipple inversion or insufficient tissue, Dr. Sof may utilise tissue grafting techniques to augment the nipple and provide additional support. This involves using tissue from another area of the body to create a more prominent and aesthetically pleasing nipple projection.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Following the procedure, Dr. Sof will close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings as needed. You’ll be closely monitored in the recovery area before being discharged with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: As you heal from the inverted nipple correction procedure, you’ll begin to notice the improved appearance and projection of your nipples. Dr. Sof’s approach aims to provide aesthetically pleasing results that enhance your confidence and self-image.


Important Note from Dr. Sof: While you may observe initial improvements, the complete results of your inverted nipple correction procedure may take a few months as swelling gradually subsides.

Guidance on Return to Activities: Your personalised plan for gradually resuming daily activities will be carefully determined in collaboration with Dr. Sof, ensuring a smooth transition back to your regular routine.


You may choose to undergo an Inverted Nipple Correction procedure for a variety of reasons which are personal to you. These may include:

Inverted nipple correction surgery can enhance the appearance of the nipples, making them protrude outward instead of being retracted inward. This can improve self-confidence and body image.

Inverted nipples may affect breastfeeding ability or cause discomfort during breastfeeding. Inverted nipple correction surgery can improve nipple function, allowing for easier breastfeeding and alleviating discomfort.

Inverted nipples can sometimes cause irritation, chafing, or discomfort due to constant friction against clothing. Correction surgery can relieve these symptoms, leading to increased comfort in everyday activities.

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.

Suitable candidates for inverted nipple correction surgery are individuals bothered by the appearance of inverted nipples and desire a more natural and protruding nipple shape.

While inverted nipple correction surgery may result in some scarring, the scars are usually minimal and well-concealed within the natural contours of the nipple. Your surgeon will discuss scar management techniques during your consultation.
