Inverted Nipple Repair

What is an Inverted Nipple Repair?

An inverted nipple repair usually takes about one to two hours. The procedures typically only requires a local anesthesia and is often done in Dr. Morris Ritz’s office. The result is a beautiful nipple that looks natural and attractive. An inverted nipple occurs when the milk duct system connecting the nipple to the chest wall is too short causing an inversion.  An inverted nipple repair is done so that the nipple projects out from the breast. The successful result is a reshaped the nipple and areola and retention of nipple and breast sensitivity.  The new nipple projection is permanent. Incisions are only at the nipple so scarring is barely visible. The milk ducts may, or may not,  be left intact to preserve the ability for breastfeeding.
