What are Inverted Nipples?
How are they Treated?
It is very common for women to have inverted nipples, a condition caused by short milk ducts. Most women have this condition their entire lives, but it can develop later in life as well. If this is a new finding, it’s important to see your family doctor to rule out the possibility of breast cancer. Depending on the extent of the inversion, Dr Farhang Khoee uses different techniques, but in general a small incision is made at the base of the areola and the tiny bands of tissue that are causing the inversion are then released. Normally the surgery takes only a few minutes and patients can return home almost immediately upon completion.
