Depends: It depends on your age. If you are a young girl, your nipples and breast structure will change as you progress through adolescence. However, if you are a mature woman, you may need to see a plastic surgeon for corrective surgery. If you are a mature woman in 30s, 40s or higher and you have new changes to your nipple, you may need to see a doctor to ensure you dont have any underlying medical issue.

Breast feeding shell: If you have inverted nipples and plan to breast feed it is best to begin to draw the nipples out well before delivery. There are simple stretches that your pediatrician or lactation consultant can teach you. Wearing special breast feeding shells before delivery can also help. Breast feeding suction also draw the nipple out. Don't wait, start before delivery-to give your infant an easy latch on.

Inverted Nipple Fix: I recommend trying a non-surgical approach called the nipplette. It is a suction device that works for most women. It can be found on line and you do not need a prescription.

Surgery: A small office procedure can be helpful to correct inverted nipples. You should have a breast exam first however. Nipples can retract from growths.

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.

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.

Plastic surgeon: Consult a plastic surgeon who will either accept what your insurance allows, or quote you the cost for people with no insurance. Some will agree to a cash payment plan
