Surgical Repair of the Inverted Nipple
Other methods for correction of the inverted nipple have proved unreliable. The author uses his own technique of making an infra-areolar semicircular incision through the skin and subcutaneous tissues, the lactiferous ducts are transected, and the nipple is then everted with sharp and blunt dissection, and imbricating the tissues at the base of the nipple and the proximal cut portion of the ducts. The procedure is discussed in detail. Satisfactory and permanent results have been obtained with this method except for rare cases, and there have been a few cases of limited superficial necrosis occurring in the areola due to lack of circulation.
