The nipples are returned to their normal place following a small breast operation which brings out the inverted nipples.
Treatment: inverted or collapsed nipples
The inverted nipples are due to a congenital malformation. The milk ducts are too short and the nipple is tucked inside the breast. The nipple is then totally invisible or barely prominent.
More rarely, nipple invagination can also occur after breast plastic surgery or reduction and after breast abscess.
The technique for fixing inverted nipples
The operation is done under local anesthesia in an ambulatory stay and lasts maximum 45 minutes.
The surgeon makes a small incision of two or three millimetres at the base of the nipple and cuts off the milk ducts to clear the nipple.
The postoperative pain is very minimal. There is a slight edema that disappears after ten days and a decrease in nipple sensitivity for a few weeks.
The resumption of daily activity is possible after two days.
If the milk ducts do not recover after surgery, later breastfeeding may not be possible.
Results: An externalization of the nipple
The result is visible immediately but it is necessary to wait two to three months for the final shape of the areola.
