17.7 in every 1000 women have an inverted nipple on one or both breasts, a statistic that was compiled by the Plastic Surgeon, Dr. R. Schwager in his paper, Inversion of the Human Female Nipple, With a Simple Method of Treatment. Based on this number, almost 2% of women in Canada have nipple inversion, and men are not exempt from its development. Males and females alike may experience adverse effects on their self esteem and body image, while women may suffer from difficulties with breastfeeding as well.
Inverted nipples are created by tight breast duct tissue that has been shortened. Genetics, trauma and physiological changes to your body following pregnancy and lactation are factors that can contribute to development. The abnormality is not a risk to your health, although severe cases may increase your susceptibility to infection. However, they can decrease your satisfaction with your appearance and make you feel more self conscious, preventing you from enjoying certain activities.

Nipple Reduction Surgery
We are also able to reduce the size of the nipples/areolae. During the initial nipple surgery consultation, your surgeon determines how best to treat your aesthetic concern by examining the areas of the nipple that require reduction. Depending on the patient, he may recommend a reduction in width, length or a combination of both. The goal of the procedure is to better balance the size of the areola (the darker coloured tissue in the centre of the breast) and the nipple. Accomplishing this provides a pleasing level of aesthetic symmetry that improves the overall look of the breasts.
