Inverted nipples are although quite common but many women are unaware of it because of the lack of discussion regarding the problem. Inverted nipples are a cause of embarrassment and sometimes it causes problems during breast feeding in women. The problem is more noticeable during cold winters. Your nipples contain some erectile tissue that causes them to become more prominent. Although your nipples may be flat or inverted a lot of the time, when the erectile tissue is stimulated, they stick out. An inverted nipple is categorized by three grades of inversion. The lesser degree of inversion may be corrected with non-surgical intervention. If you are struggling with the condition of inverted nipples, the first thing to do is arranging a consultation with the best surgeon. During the consultation, the surgeon will examine the breasts and determine the appropriate treatment for your grade of inverted nipple.
For minimally inverted nipple, correction may be performed non-surgically. This type of inversion is not strong and the nipple can be averted easily. The defect is corrected with a suction device or the use of a short-term nipple piercing, which will evert the nipple in a normalized way. In some cases, sutures are made around the outside of the nipple to reshape it without interfering with milk ducts. In a Grade II inverted nipple, fibrosis of the tissues causes it to retract easily, even when it can be everted. In this case, minimal surgery is required. The surgeon will access the fibrous tissue and divide it to create a natural nipple shape. In this procedure, he will be able to avoid the milk ducts. During the severe case of inverted nipple, the nipple cannot be everted. Surgery is required for its correction. A large degree of fibrosis is present and the milk ducts may be recessed due to the lack of soft tissue around and underneath the nipple. During the severe cases, the surgeon must access the milk ducts and tissues, removing the fibrosis. The surgeon uses grafts to replace soft tissue beneath the nipple. After the surgery is done, the surgeon will provide surgical dressings covering your nipple. In cases of more extreme inversion, the dressings should be put for up to two weeks. You will get the desired result after the surgery is completed. The surgery is quite affordable and you will get the most amazing result after the surgery is completed.
