If you are seeking a permanent end to an inverted nipple, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shim Ching offers nipple inversion repair surgery. This surgery stops nipples from inverting, allowing patients to feel more comfortable in their skin.
Degrees of Nipple Inversion
The first step before nipple inversion repair is determining the degree of inversion. There is a grading system that takes into account the duration of inversion as well as the response. Level 1 is patients whose nipples sometimes come out without manipulation. Level 2 nipples respond to manipulation. Level 3 nipples are the ones that do not respond to manual manipulation and are always inverted. During your consultation with Dr. Ching, he will determine what level your nipple inversion is. He will discuss your goals for the surgery as well as examine your nipples. He will be able to answer your questions and decide if this procedure is right for you.
