You can at StarkMD with the help of a double-board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience with breast and nipple surgeries.
What is an Inverted Nipple?
Not all nipples are the same. In fact, there are eight different types of nipples (divided, flat, protruding, inverted, etc.), and you could even have a combination of nipple types from one breast to the other. Some people are born with inverted nipples; others might develop them over time.
Inverted nipples happen when overly tight and shortened breast duct tissue pulls on the nipple into the surrounding areola. The condition may present itself on both breasts but usually is more pronounced on one side. Dr. Stark uses a minimally invasive surgery to release the foreshortened ducts to correct the inverted nipple.
No matter the degree of which your nipple is inverted, it can be easily addressed surgically. You should be in good physical health and be a non-smoker. After a full consultation, Dr. Stark will be able to determine the best course of action for your specific needs.
The typical surgical solution for an inverted nipple requires a tiny incision at the base of the nipple; a microsurgical instrument releases the fibers. Then, to maintain the position of the nipple, Dr. Stark places a suture beneath the nipple. The whole procedure takes around one hour and can be performed safely under local anesthetic right in the office.
Since Dr. Stark uses a minimally invasive inverted nipple surgery procedure, the recovery time is very quick. You can return to work the following day. Light cardio workouts can be resumed three days after the procedure. Strenuous exercise should be put on hold for two weeks.
To ensure proper healing, you're asked not to wear bras or anything too tight around the breast area for ten days after the procedure. Sensitivity around the nipples is not uncommon in the first few days, and you need to change the gauze every day. Avoid getting the dressing wet for the first 24 hours. The sutures dissolve within a couple of weeks, and the scarring is minimal and usually not noticeable.
Inverted nipple correction is a little procedure with big results. Patients with all forms of inverted nipples can see a dramatic difference after the correction procedure. You will no longer have flat nipples, or retracted nipples after the procedure. Immediately following the procedure, you should notice better symmetry of your nipples, with a natural looking protrusion of them.

Dr. Stark uses local anesthesia to make sure the patient is comfortable while performing the minimally invasive nipple surgery. If you experience some discomfort in the days following the procedure, you can use over-the-counter pain medications.
There will be some bruising and swelling of the nipple area following the procedure, which is normal and will go down. Some patients might experience drainage from the nipple within the first three weeks after surgery. Rare complications can include bleeding, hematoma, infection, nerve damage, or scarring (If they are rare, why do we mention them? There are always very rare complications for every procedure which can be discussed in the office).
