Treating Inverted Nipples – San Diego

Published on December 31, 2012

Many women are born with or develop inverted nipples later in life after breastfeeding, trauma, or weight loss. There are generally considered to be three varying degrees of inverted nipple severity. At the lowest severity are nipples which are considered “shy” and can be easily drawn out or may stay out for an extended time before retreating. At the mid level, the inverted nipples may come out with stimulation, but do not stay that way for an extended period of time. Finally, the most severe level of inverted nipples are those which are always inverted. A women may even have nipples at two separate levels, one may even be constantly inverted and the other is never inverted.

Women with inverted nipples often seek out Inverted Nipple Repair due to a self-consciousness in intimate situations.
