Inverted nipples can be corrected with a minor surgical procedure performed at The Plastic Surgery Clinic. This minor procedure is usually performed under local anesthetic, although some patients prefer to be totally asleep under a general anesthetic. In either case there is no pain during the procedure.
In this operation a tiny, 2 mm incision is placed along the edge of the nipple. The overly tight ducts, which are the cause of the inversion, are then gently released. This allows the nipple to immediately project normally.
After undergoing inverted nipple correction in Toronto/Mississauga, patients can see the improvement right away. A single small absorbable stitch is then placed along the edge of the incision. The suture dissolves in about a week. The scar is usually invisible.
