The two main conditions that nipple surgery is designed to address are inverted nipples (periductal mastitis) and long nipples. Dr Tavakoli is experienced in performing nipple correction surgery, to address the specific concerns and aesthetic goals of the patient.

A. Inverted Nipples

Some women may experience nipples that are inverted intermittently or constantly.

Inverted nipples are caused by tight and shortened breast duct tissue. The inverted nipples can be corrected surgically by the release of the foreshortened ducts, in many cases with minimally invasive technique. Correction of nipple inversion may be performed as an isolated procedure or in combination with other breast surgeries.


Some women may experience nipples that become long, dark and sometimes wide in girth. This can be a result of prolonged breast feeding or can be part of normal development of the breast. It can also sometimes be associated with breasts with wider areola.

The condition is far more common in Asian women. It is not a painful condition but seems to become an issue in women who wish to undergo breast augmentation mammoplasty, as the nipples may become very obvious.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
