Inverted Nipple Surgery

Breast Procedures / Inverted nipple surgery in Montreal

An Inverted nipple, flat nipples, or shy nipples lack protrusion & projection and can cause you both emotional and functional issues. This can result in embarrassment or lack of confidence.

Inverted nipples are not a common problem, but for the women affected, the issue can affect self-confidence and even a woman’s ability to breastfeed. Inverted nipples occur when the nipples pull in instead of protruding out, due to constricted tissue within the breast. By addressing that constriction through a straightforward surgical procedure, the nipple can often be permanently corrected into a more natural position.


What is inverted nipple csurgery?

Inverted nipples are caused by short or overly tight milk ducts. The surgical procedure will correct this with a small incision to release them, allowing the nipples to project. The procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia, with a quick recovery. Some women may choose to have this surgery at the same time as other procedures, such as breast augmentation or as part of a mommy makeover.


Are you a candidate?

Who is a good candidate for inverted nipple surgery?


This surgical procedure is for anyone with any variation (mild to severe) of inverted nipples that may feel unhappy with the appearance of their nipples and is not pregnant or breastfeeding. Your surgeon will assess you to determine if you are a good candidate for inverted nipple correction surgery.


Risks and Complications of Inverted Nipple Surgery

Know the risks of nipple correction surgery

Like any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with nipple correction surgery. These can include bleeding, scarring, infection and pain. 

Additional risks of nipple correction surgery can be loss of nipple sensitivity, loss of tissue, loss of feeling (numbness), or hypersensitivity to the nipples.  Inverted nipple correction surgery can be permanent but there is a risk that the inverted nipple(s) may reoccur. 

It is also very likely that you will not be able to breastfeed after inverted nipple correction so this is something to consider before choosing to have the surgery if breastfeeding is important to you.
