Many women feel that the overall beauty and balance of the breasts is compromised when the nipples project inwards rather than outwards. Flat or drawn-in nipples, in addition to causing cosmetic concerns, can change the look of clothing and swimwear. Dr. Savalia in Newport Beach performs strategic repair techniques for inverted nipples, creating a more conventionally beautiful aesthetic that will maximize your self-confidence.
What is inverted nipple repair?
For most women, inverted nipples are a congenital condition, meaning they have had them since birth. However, some patients will develop inverted nipples later in life through injury, trauma, massive weight loss, infections, cancer, disease, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Inverted nipples can occur when the breast ducts are truncated, or the breast tissue is tightened. If the nipples suddenly become inverted, it’s essential that you see a doctor right away to diagnose any underlying medical issues.
Inverted nipple repair, performed using local anesthesia, is a simple, straightforward procedure to reverse this fairly common condition. It can provide women with a more natural-looking breast appearance and the proper nipple projection for their bodies. Two tiny incisions are created to release the breast tissue and allow the nipple to resurface in an organic fashion. Dr. Savalia focuses on providing a balanced, symmetrical outcome that is carefully tailored to the patient’s wishes.

Who is a good candidate for inverted nipple correction?
Women who are frustrated by the feel and look of inverted nipples are excellent candidates for Dr. Savalia’s repair procedure, provided they are of sound mind and body, they are non-smokers, and they are free from significant, uncontrolled health issues such as hypertension or bleeding disorders. In addition, clients should have realistic expectations for their final results.
Dr. Savalia will meet with you in private at his Newport Beach location and conduct a thorough physical evaluation and medical review. He will then make his best recommendation for your treatment. If the doctor is concerned that an underlying medical condition may be present, he will make a referral to a specialist before proceeding with your surgery.
What can I expect after inverted nipple correction?
Typically, there is minimal downtime after your inverted nipple repair treatment. You will not experience swelling, bruising, and pain as you might after breast augmentation or mastopexy. However, Dr. Savalia wants to ensure your recovery is smooth and stress-free. He will provide you with a detailed aftercare plan, prescription pain medications, and a clear understanding of what you can expect over the coming weeks and months.
