Inverted nipples can be the cause of distress for many women causing potential breastfeeding problems as well as a lack of self esteem. An inverted nipple may appear flat or a slit like depression or not in the usual nipple location. You will be advised by your surgeon of the most suitable corrective procedure.

Your personal consultation

During your consultation you will be asked to point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help your surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.

Understanding the risks

Fortunately, significant complications from nipple correction are infrequent. Every year many people have their nipples reshaped, experience no major problems and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.


  • When can I resume my normal activities? Following nipple correction normal activities can normally be resumed when the patient feels comfortable to do so and with the Surgeons advice.
