Surgical correction involves a procedure to release the underlying tissues and may require transection of milk ducts, which could potentially preclude future breastfeeding. Developing extra breast tissue with associated nipples or pigmented areolas may sometimes occur, in both men and women. In addition, the areola itself may become disproportionately enlarged, whereas the nipple may appear retracted or inverted below skin level. In these operations, the incision used to lift the nipples may also serve to achieve changes in circumference and shape of the areola. Surgery is performed under local anesthesia or with IV sedation. In some women, inverted nipples result from the changes that occur as breast tissue diminishes after breastfeeding. In patients with small breasts and only a small degree of ptosis, increasing breast volume with implants often produces a small degree of nipple lift and does not require a separate procedure.
