When it comes to nipples, what's normal?

 
This is really embarrassing, but is having inward nipples normal? Do I have to get surgery or something?

 

Nipples are kind of like belly buttons. They can be “innies” or “outies.” Although you don’t hear about them much, inverted nipples are actually fairly common. Girls and guys can have them, and it can affect one or both or your nipples.
 

So what’s the cause? There are actually a number of factors that contribute to the way your nipples look. Two common causes of inverted nipples are scar tissue and a shorter milk duct. Both draw the nipple back instead of letting it stick out.

The biggest problem a severe case of inverted nipples can cause involves breastfeeding—and we’re betting (and hoping) that’s far from your mind right now.
 
While you can get surgery to “fix” your nipples, it’s painful and usually unnecessary. There’s no reason to be worried unless this inversion is a very sudden, recent occurrence, or you’re experiencing pain. If you are concerned, though, it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor. It never hurts to make sure you’re healthy!
