Inverted Nipple Surgery QuestionYour Questions Answered by the Surgeons at Aurora Clinics

Q) I am 14 years of age and have Grade 3 nipples, and I always have. Recently though, I have noticed my nipples have become slightly more visible. They never protrude like normal nipples but I can see them, and occasionally they will protrude enough to look like flat nipples instead of inverted nipples but eventually retreat. This never used to happen when I was younger. Does this mean over time my nipples may naturally protrude without surgery?

Thanks for contacting us. As you know, inverted nipples are very common and affect approximately 10% of people. It is good that they are becoming less inverted with time. This trend may well continue and you are right that you may not need surgery.

It might be worth trying the Niplette suction device if you have not done so before. This stretches the ducts gently and helps the nipple remain everted for longer periods.

I hope this has been helpful and that your nipple inversion continues to improve naturally.

Best wishes,

Adrian Richards
