Ki Tae Kim, Sung Hoon Jung, Sung Ho Yun, Dong Il Kim, Jae Wook Oh
The inverted nipple presents many problems including both cosmetic and functional aspects and impairment in breast feeding. the histopathologic characters of inverted nipple are that inverted nipple has less fibromuscular tissue than normal nipple and has short lactiferous duct and dense fibrous tissue. Many surgical and non-surgical techniques have been designed for correction of the inverted nipple. But most of these techniques have produced unsatisfactory problems. especially undesirable recurrence is most important problem. We experienced 19 inverted nipples in 12 patients between March 1995 and January 1998. We combined modified Teimourian method, purse-string suture and Z-plasty. and had good result for 3weeks to 30months follow up. This method was effective for correction of the inverted nipple with low recurrence rate and simple techniques.
