How is a nipple repair performed?

A small incision is made at the base of the nipple within the colored areola, so the scar is hidden. Then the shortened ducts are either released or selectively divided depending upon the severity of the inversion. Small sutures are placed under the nipple to hold the nipple out in a projected position. Finally, a small splint is placed on the nipple while healing occurs.
