Non Surgical Inverted Nipple Correction
From the Hoffman Technique to the Niplette.
I am concerned about surgery,
It is perfectly natural to have concerns about surgery, no matter how minor. Or you may simply wish to explore the alternatives. There are indeed a few methods that you can try at home.
is it the only way?
If you are looking for a temporary solution, you may want to consider:
The Hoffman TechniqueThe Hoffman technique for drawing out inverted nipples has been in use since the 1950s.
For best results, practice this technique at least once a day. Regular stimulation may help your nipples protrude more often.
There have not been any studies proving whether it is effective. Everyone’s breasts are different, so try not to get discouraged if this method does not work for you.
Place your thumbs on either side of your nipple. Be sure to place them at the base of the nipple, not the outside of the areola.
Press firmly, but gently down into your breast tissue.
While still pressing down, gently pull your thumbs away from each other.
Move your thumbs all around the nipple and repeat.
It isn’t clear how long this effect will last, and it is not permanent by any means.
The NipletteThere is a device which is available over the counter which can help with nipple inversion for breastfeeding mothers.
however it is still not as effective as surgical correction.
