Inverted nipples are extremely common, with an estimated 10% of the population suffering from this condition. What most people don’t know is that it isn’t just a case of ‘in’ or ‘out’.
Inverted nipples occur when the breast ducts are too short or there’s a tightening of the duct’s tissue due to an imbalance in traction between them and the smooth muscle that keeps nipples erect. Alternatively, it could just be that there’s too much connective tissue in the nipple. The cause varies from person to person and can be due to genetics, lactation, pregnancy or trauma.
