Inverted Nipple Correction
This is a situation where the height of the nipple is similar to (or lower than) that of the tissue adjacent to the nipple. This makes breast-feeding difficult after childbirth, and those affected are recommended to correct this through surgery. The cause of inverted nipples is congenital, and results from less connective tissue beneath the nipple or under-developed muscles in the areola.
The surgery method to be used is based on how severely depressed the nipple is. If it is severely depressed, the mammary duct must be incised, which will affect breast-feeding. If it is not severely depressed, a method not correcting the mammary duct is used.
