Correction of Inverted Nipples

Inverted nipple is usually a congenital (present at birth) condition or rarely may occur over time after trauma or inflammation to the breast. It is due to tethering of the tissues under the nipple. Depending on the severity of the inverted nipple, it may just stay flat or in more severe cases it may retract inward. Women may notice that they have two nipples with different degree of retraction, nipples of different size or only one inverted nipple. This condition may be a source of embarrassment and affect womens’ self-esteem.

Best Candidates

Women who are unhappy with the appearance of their nipples and are looking to achieve more symmetric nipples with fuller projection.

Loved my experience here! Dr. Kitto is great and took the time to answer all of the questions I had. Most doctors won’t spend an hour with you one on one but Dr. Kitto spent our entire one hour consultation in the room with me. I left feeling much more at ease about my surgery.

The procedure

Dr. Kitto performs the correction of inverted nipples in the office under local anesthesia for her patients’ maximal comfort. Dr. Kitto uses small incisions placed at inconspicuous locations to reshape the nipple, provide support to the nipple and then closes the incisions with absorbable sutures. There will be no stitches to remove. This procedure is relatively short and safely performed in the office. Patients are then sent home with detailed instructions and follow up.

Recovery process

Recovery is fairly quick. Patients may expect mild swelling and bruising for a day or two. Any residual discomfort is treated with over the counter medication. There are no stitches to be removed as they are all dissolvable. The incisions heal quicks and scars become imperceptible. Patients are periodically seen in the office to ensure their complete recovery.

Dr. Kitto is amazing! She is so personable but very professional at the same time! You know that she really cares about her patients and wants to do the Best thing that will help you achieve “the why” you are seeking her care. The office is beautiful and it reflects the quality of work that she does.
Her kind and gentle way that she uses when she treats you helps with any nervousness or anxiousness that you might have about the procedure she is doing. The results speak for themselves- I get compliments all the time of “have you gone on vacation?” or have you had a “nice relaxing time- you look so good”? or just “wow you look Great!”.
