Inverted Nipple Correction New York City

Introduction to Inverted Nipple Correction

Dr. William Lao is a top plastic surgeon specializing in inverted nipple correction in NYC. Often the cause of an inverted nipple is unknown; it is mostly congenital. People who have this problem are often born with it. A minority of people who have inverted nipples are secondary to surgical or traumatic injury to the breast and are caused by tethering of nipples downward by scar tissue. Most patients who came to me with this problem state they often become self-conscious and embarrassed in intimate situations.
