Is it possible to correct inverted nipples? Would all feeling in the nipple then stop? How is it done and what is the recovery time?
Correction of inverted nipples can be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon as an office procedure using local anesthesia. Recovery time is 5 to 7 days. Although loss of feeling in the nipples can occur, most patients retain normal sensation postoperatively.
