Nipple inversion is a very common condition, which affects as many as 3% of young women. As long as the condition has been present from the beginning of when your breasts formed, it is known as congenital nipple inversion, and it doesn't represent a serious medical problem, such as cancer or scarring of the breast. Most women with mild to moderate nipple inversion do not have any trouble at all with the condition, although breastfeeding can sometimes be a bit more challenging for women who have children and desire to breastfeed them.
If you are planning on having children and breastfeeding them, then proper planning is essential, and seeking advice from your OB GYN doctor
or a lactation specialist before hand will help you be prepared.
Additionally, some women find the condition of inverted nipples to be cosmetically undesirable. In that case, there are a few surgical options that are available to correct the problem. If you are interested in this possible, then you would need to set up a visit with a plastic surgeon
or a breast surgeon. The surgeon will be able to evaluate you and help you figure out whether or not a cosmetic surgery
is a good option for you.
