Inverted nipples may look flat or even indented into the skin. If you have them, you may feel uncomfortable with how they look.

The best way to permanently correct inverted nipples is through inverted nipple correction surgery. Inverted nipple correction is a procedure that projects the nipples out, improving the appearance of the breasts.

This procedure can achieve normal-looking, projected nipples that let you feel more confident.

Dr. Rankin performs several types of nipple correction surgery. He will choose the best one for your needs and breast anatomy.

In most cases, this procedure uses a small incision under the nipple that will heal nearly invisibly In some cases, it may be more extensive. He will choose the procedure with the least amount of scarring while still achieving your goals.
