Patients with one or two inverted nipples may lack confidence when it comes to the appearance of their breasts, especially during intimate occasions. Inverted nipples, where the nipples are flat or concave, are a totally natural breast variation that many people are born with. For some patients, nipple inversion will spontaneously resolve during puberty or pregnancy, while others may develop inverted nipples during these times. Although inverted nipples are completely painless, the condition can make breasts look asymmetrical and distorted. In the most severe cases, inverted nipples can even interfere with breastfeeding.
Dr. B. Aviva Preminger offers inverted nipple surgery in NYC, helping women (and men) boost their self-esteem and confidence. Before recommending a treatment plan, Dr. Preminger will examine your breasts to assess the degree of severity.
- Level 1 – Nipples are only mildly inverted and can usually be fixed with a manual release and stretch of the tissue.
- Level 2 – Nipples are not likely to correct themselves spontaneously, and may respond to non-surgical manipulation with suction or surgery.
- Level 3 – This category is the most severe type of nipple inversion that will only respond to inverted nipple surgery.
After your personal consultation and physical exam, Dr. Preminger will outline the best options, and if inverted nipple correction surgery is necessary, you will have the chance to tour her state-of-the-art surgical suite situated on the upper east side of Manhattan.
