Inverted Nipple


Inverted Nipple Certain individuals have nipples that are flat or even depressed inwardly. This condition is known as an inverted nipple, and it can affect both men and women and one or both of their nipples.

Inverted nipples can cause a loss of self-confidence because of their peculiar look. Fortunately, there are surgical options available to correct this condition.

The surgery varies based on the particulars of the patient, but generally, an artificial nipple is inserted into the breast tissue. This implant is covered by the skin through the natural healing process, giving the patient the natural look they have always wanted.
