Inverted nipple: Best not to frustrate yourself. Some things are not suitable to home remedies especially anatomic deformities of this nature.
Dr. Earl Ferguson
Plastic Surgery 27 years experience
Surgical issue: Inversion of the nipple is due to tethering by fibrous bands on the back side of the nipple. Surgical release of those bands is the only way to achieve long term resolution. Any non-surgical methods are certain to be minimally effective and very short lived.
Dr. Tom Pousti
Specializes in Plastic Surgery
Usually Yes.: Although there are many devices on the market, reliable correction of inverted nipples does require a surgical procedure. This procedure often involves division of the lactiferous ( milk) ducts.
