Where Nature Likes to Be Asked Twice

The primary natural function nipples have to fulfill is feeding babies. The shape of the nipple may well be quite different from woman to woman. But there is one special case, not only in terms of aesthetics but first of all in terms of natural functionality: inverted nipples. In this case, the nipples are not protruding, but turned inward.

Interesting information about how to deal with inverted nipples

The reason for such inverted nipples is an innate malformation: the lactiferous ducts leading the mother’s milk from the mammary gland to the nipple are shortened. This may lead to problems once the woman has given birth.

But even before that, many women affected by inverted nipples regard them as an aesthetic flaw. Surgery may provide relief and often provides an opportunity for being able to later breast feed one’s child in the first place.

On the other hand, women should first try to use conservative methods before they decide on having surgery – e.g. using different massaging techniques or devices creating a partial vacuum around the nipple.

We’d like to discuss any potential risks as well as the treatment procedure in your individual case, explaining all details and answering your questions, in a personal consulting session. Please contact us for further information.
