is there a way to cure inverted nipples without surgery?

No: There are no noninvasive methods to treat inverted nipples. While surgery can be effective, it is not 100% successful. Nipple inversion may sometimes indicate an underlying tumor; when new, this requires physician evaluation.

Possibly: There are articles in the literature describinf the use of temporary nipple piercing to correct inverted nipples. The theory is that the scar that develops after removing the piercing helps to keep the nipple from retracting.
