What is cause: Is this a new finding or have you always been inverted on both sides? If the latter, then only surgery can bring them back out. I recommend a board certified plastic surgeon. If the inversion is new, find a breast specialist for evaluation.

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.

Yes: You'll first want to make sure there is not an abnormality causing the inversion. If this is chronic, then it can be surgically corrected. I recommend finding a good plastic surgeon who can perform this procedure.

Inverted nipples: Some woman who breast feed may experience protraction that remains. Suction sex toys may be used to protract nipples & stimulation often causes them to protract. If the nipples is able to protract then sometimes piercing jewelry can keep it in a protracted state.

Apparently: http://www.sfcosmeticsurgery.com/say-goodbye-to-inverted-nipples this is a website out of san francisco that says it can simply be done. Best advice to have a couple consultations and see if it is affordable, safe, and really that simple and if you want to have children and breastfeed, will it affect that? Hope this is helpful.
