An estimated 10–20% of women have some type of inverted or “shy” nipple, in which one or both of their nipples pulls inward instead of pointing out
Most commonly inverted nipples are caused by tight bands of tissue or ducts tethering the nipple so it doesn’t come out. Simply cutting that tissue can allow the nipple to project normally.
- The surgery can eliminate a source of self-consciousness.
- It’s done here at Evolve Medical, in our Minor Ops Suite, under local anaesthesia.
- The surgery will not be painful at the time of the procedure
How long does the procedure take?
This procedure can take around 30 mins and requires little downtime.
Will I be left with a scar?
The incisions are small—and once they’ve healed, any scarring can hardly be seen. The bumpy surface and natural colour variations in the area help camouflage the scar.
