Inverted Nipples

Inverted nipples are more common than many people realize. Some women are born with sunken or inverted nipples, while others develop the condition over time. It can occur on only one breast or on both, but it doesn’t go away by itself. Luckily, plastic surgery can repair inverted nipples, helping women to feel more confident about how they look.

Some women have a breast augmentation (also called a breast enlargement, breast enhancement, or breast implants) and/or a breast lift at the same time as their inverted nipples surgery.

No two nipple repair surgeries are the same, so you need an experienced plastic surgeon who knows how to properly reverse the inverted nipple condition for you. Dr. Robinson has been performing breast surgeries of all types for more than 15 years and has extensive experience repairing inverted nipples of the breasts.

What Happens During Repair of Inverted Nipples?

Dr. Robinson performs the procedure at a fully accredited facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is an outpatient procedure performed under a local anesthetic. It is designed to use only a small incision on the under side of the areola where there is no visible scar.

A small splint may be necessary for a short time during the healing process to hold the nipple in place. An areola reduction can also be done at the same time, if desired.

Inverted Nipple Repair Recovery

Recovery from inverted nipple repair surgery is quite fast and requires little down time. Most women are able to return to work and normal, but not strenuous physical activities, as fast as one or two days after the procedure.

Your Consultation for Inverted Nipple Repair in Ohio

At your consultation, Dr. Robinson will talk with you about what you can expect from your inverted nipples procedure. You will also see successful inverted nipple repair before and after photos of others who have had the surgery. If desired, our personnel can take discreet pictures of you to serve as your “before pictures”, as well as “after pictures” once the healing process is complete. It can be exciting to compare the differences after your cosmetic surgery. Of course, your photos will not be shared with anyone unless you consent.
