An inverted nipple is a condition where the nipple retracts or turns inward instead of protruding outward from the breast. It is a common anatomical variation that can affect one or both nipples. The issue may be present from birth (congenital) or develop later in life due to infection, injury or other factors.*
Patients who are bothered by the appearance of inverted nipples (or experiencing challenges with breastfeeding, which can often occur) may consider breast surgery to address the concern. While the course of this procedure can vary based on the patient’s individual case, the surgery usually involves releasing the tissue and ducts that are pulling the nipple inward and reshaping the nipple for a more outward-facing appearance.
