Inverted Nipples in Children

Find Clinics offering Inverted Nipple Correction in London & UK »

In children, the inverted nipple may be due to the underlying tissue not multiplying at a rate that causes the nipple to become raised and so attachments at the base of the nipple pull it inwards. It is a more common issue in girls, however, it can occur in boys too.

Will the inverted nipple be permanent?

It is very possible that the nipple will become normal during puberty. This is because the attachments tend to stretch so the nipple is released to project from the chest. There is always a chance, however, that the nipple will remain inverted, which has no related medical issues and the child can live a perfectly normal life with the inverted nipple.
