Re: Help! Invert Nipples?! advise please

Inverted nipples are often caused by muscle or other tissue within the breast attaching to the nipple and thus pulling it inward. Talk to a general practitioner and they can refer you to the proper specialist, but the surgery to fix it is basically a quick snip with very little involved. I'm a guy and my left nipple was inverted, I had the surgery done this summer, and it now looks completely normal; recovery period was about 3 weeks and i had very little pain.

The part that hurt most was when they gave me the local anaesthetic, after that I didn't feel a thing in my chest area for about 6-hours, and I even had to go through a bumpy car ride home and didn't have any pain.

There was a small amount of bleeding for a few days after the surgery as the cut sealed up, but they had provided me with plenty of gauze bandages and antibiotic ointment.

It took about 4 weeks to completely heal, although I was ok to do all normal activities within about a week or so.

As for the cost, I couldn't actually tell you that one as it was a follow-up from a surgery I had the previous summer so it was free. The first surgery I had was a pretty costly one, but because I was under 18 at the time insurance covered it (it was technically a type of cosmetic surgery, but cosmetic surgery doesn't exist for minors). Since you said your sister is also under 18, you should definitely check with your insurance company.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask, glad I could help.

There is a product called the "nipplette" . It is used to draw the nipple out permanently. Moms who want to nurse often use them.

Other than the "nipplette", there is a product made by a company called Nipple Fun Wear that is supposed to help fix inverted nipples.
