Inverted Nipple Correction

Are your nipples “innies”? Interested in learning more about the options to deal with them? Discover more about inverted nipple correction surgery.


Inverted nipple condition is where the nipple points inwards instead of outwards. If you were born with inverted nipples, this condition is most likely not medically harmful but still may be an aesthetic problem you are looking to address. Around 10-20% of people are born with this condition with varying degrees of inversion. Many people affected with inverted nipples seek to correct this condition with at-home remedies to no avail. These temporary fixes (which we do NOT endorse) include:

  • Ice & Cold Showers – this temperature change sometimes stimulates the nipple to protrude, but is a temporary fix as the nipples return to their natural positions afterward.
  • Rolling of the nipple – Some women have found massaging may help, but this may not be effective for most cases where the nipple tissue does not stretch by regular gentle rollings.
  • Piercings (yes, piercings) – some have even gone to the extremes of nipple piercings in an attempt to correct their inverted nipples. This may sometimes succeed but has the drawbacks of the long wait for results, risk of rejection, and pain.

These at-home remedies may sometimes work, but the only proven way to get permanent corrective results is surgery. Inverted nipples occur because of connective breast tissue underneath. The alternatives above usually can not affect this firm tissue in a significant way.

Inverted nipple correction surgery is a simple and proven procedure that leaves minimal scarring and gives you natural-looking, permanent results with minimal downtime.
