Why pursue nipple surgery?

Being born with inverted nipples (concave or flat nipples) is perfectly natural. Although the condition is painless, it can distort the aesthetic of the breasts, making them look asymmetrical. In rare cases, inverted nipples may subvert the breastfeeding process.


How do we assess nipple inversion

Nipple inversion is assessed based on the following scale:

  • Level 1 – The nipple tissue can be stretched and released manually.
  • Level 2 – The nipples may be non-surgically corrected with manipulation or suction.
  • Level 3 – The nipple inversion is severe and will require a surgical intervention.

At the time of your private Beverly Hills consultation, Dr. Lee will perform a physical exam and determine the best course of action for resolving your individual concerns with your nipples.

“Dr. Michelle Lee is an AMAZING plastic surgery doctor. I am so happy every day I wake up with a confident spirit now that I’ve found myself again. No words can describe how much I want to thank Dr. Michelle Lee. The best work. She’s helped to answer all my concerns and needs.”

What is nipple projection augmentation?

If the nipples do not naturally protrude properly, they can be surgically or non-surgically enhanced to achieve a more conventional appearance. The non-surgical option uses dermal fillers to plump and augment the nipples. Another option is to reconstruct projected nipples using the patient’s own tissue, as is done with flaps during breast mound reconstruction in cancer patients.
