Inverted Nipple Surgery in Turkey
Inverted nipple surgery in Turkey is also called retracted nipple correction. It is mainly indicated for patients with nipple inversion or nipple retraction (nipples that are inside the breast).
What Are Inverted Nipples?
In this condition, the nipple is pointing into the breast. This may occur after a trauma or a disease. However, this condition may also be congenital.
A retracted nipple is a rare condition that can occur on one or both boobs. Studies show that 9% to 10% of women have retracted their nipples at least.
Suddenly retracted nipples can be a sign of an underlying disease, such as breast cancer. If the patient is not pregnant and has not experienced any trauma to the chest, she must undergo mammography immediately.
Inverted Nipple Surgery: for which reason?
Plastic surgeons usually perform retracted nipple surgery for three main reasons:
Functional reasons :
The function of the nipple is altered, especially during the lactation phase after giving birth. Many mothers have breastfeeding issues due to retracted nipples. Therefore, plastic surgery is the only treatment that restores breastfeeding functionality.
Cosmetic reasons :
Women consider protruding mamillas more attractive than the retracted ones. Some women undergo inverted nipple surgery to restore the natural look of their retracted nipples.
Psychological reasons :
Women with one retracted nipple may feel less feminine or less confident. Indeed, the asymmetry of the boobs can impact women's self-love and self-esteem.
Inverted Nipple Surgery Contraindications
There are many contraindications of the inverted nipple surgery, including one or more of the following:
- Having unrealistic expectations from the surgery;
- Being pregnant or in lactation period;
- Being underage;

Cosmetic nipple surgery is indicated for the following cases:
- Inverted nipples (invaginated, or nipples that are inside the breast);
- Abnormal growth of the nipples;
- Complete loss of the nipple due to a mastectomy.
Nipple surgery can be performed under general or local anethesia. It can also be performed under neuroleptanalgesia (local anesthesia associated with intravenous analgesic injections).
In the case of inverted or flat nipples, it is surgically impossible to lengthen them without cutting the canals that hold them. It is therefore impossible to breastfeed after this intervention.
The success rate of cosmetic nipple surgery is 90%.
