Of course, we use the very latest technology. But our real skill is in knowing how and when to use it to suit each individual patient.MR BRYAN MAYOU, FOUNDER
An inverted nipple is a condition where the nipple is pulled inwards into the breast, rather than pointing outwards. Inverted nipples are mostly congenital and are not uncommon, affecting up to 20% of men and women. Some cases can arise as a symptom of disease or trauma, where scarring of the breast tissue causes the nipple to pull inwards. People with nipples that suddenly begin inverting should immediately seek medical advice as it may be a sign of breast cancer. Pregnant women may experience inverted nipples throughout their pregnancy; and likewise, women who have previously had inverted nipples may experience them protruding throughout their pregnancy.
Some nipples can be inverted only some of the time and will protrude with stimulation or with temperature changes. There is a variation of nipple which is referred to as 'flat nipple', which lie against the areola and others can be permanently inverted, despite the thermostat. When it comes to nipples, there are many variations and there is no right or wrong shape.
Inverted nipples may cause confidence and self-esteem issues and the desire to correct inverted nipples is purely cosmetic.
