Inverted nipples are nipples that point inward rather than outward. They are a common condition and can affect both men and women.
Inverted nipple correction is a minor procedure that modifies your nipples so that they project out in a natural way.

What is an inverted nipple correction?
An inverted nipple correction is a relatively simple surgical procedure to make inverted nipples protrude outwards.
Inverted nipple surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic as a day case procedure. During your procedure your plastic surgeon will make small cuts to the base of your nipple to free it from the deeper tissue and then re-stitching it so that it protrudes outwards.
How long does the inverted nipple correction procedure take?
An inverted nipple correction each takes around 30 minutes.
How long is the recovery process after an inverted nipple correction?
You will be able to go home on the same day following surgery. It is advisable to have someone to drive you home. You can usually return to work within a few days. It is advisable to avoid any swimming or strenuous exercise for three to four weeks.
