Many women not only in the United States but across the globe suffer from flat or inverted nipples. If you are a woman who has flat or inverted nipples and you have a problem with them then you can understand the pain and self-consciousness caused by flat and/or inverted nipples. Most women who I have come into contact with or read about who have flat or inverted nipples have stated or made it painfully obvious that they feel less than a woman. This can cause serious emotional problems as well as self-esteem issues, depending on the person and how they deal with their problems. Flat or inverted nipples have also caused many problems for those women who have tried and would like to nurse or breastfeed their infants.
Should Know Facts About Flat/Inverted Nipples:
1.) The very first thing that should be known, which is probably the most important is, any nipple inversion that is not congenintal but has occurred recently should be immediately checked by a doctor. This means that if flat or inverted nipples are something that you have not always dealt with, but has just happened recently you should talk to your doctor as soon as possible.
2.) What causes flat or inverted nipples? Flat and/or inverted nipples are caused by the lactiferous ducts not being stretched or not being grown properly. Which is done or happens or is suppose to happen during puberty. It is the lactiferous ducts that holds the nipples in.
It has been proven that the Avent Niplette is the number one effective method of correction for flat and/or inverted nipples. Until the Avent Niplette the only effective method of correction was surgery. This particular surgery involved the sectioning of the lactiferous ducts under anaesthetic. Now although surgery would achieve cosmetic correction it would effectively destroy breast function. This intern will rule out breastfeeding for good. There is also a good chance that one or both nipples could invert or become flat once again. And with the high cost of surgery and with the chance of the nipples going back to their old ways, I would imagine that this makes surgery a less than ideal solution. When using the Avent Niplette duct division is not at all needed. Therefor any woman who is planning or would like to nurse or breafeed their infant may do so. The other two traditional treatments for flat or inverted nipples are the breast shells as well as the Hoffman exercise which are not as effective nor permanent.
About The Avent Niplette:
The revolutionary and unique Avent Niplette was invented by a leading UK plastic surgeon. The Avent Niplette is a simple and painless device that can be used by women of any and all ages. The Avent Niplette uses the principle of tissue expansion through long term suction to stretch the lactiferous ducts. The Avent Niplette works because sustained suction gently stretches the lactiferous ducts so they will no longer hold the nipple in. The degree of suction is controlled by the woman herself, depending on what is comfortable. The speed of correction achieved depends on three things, the degree of inversion, the state of the individual’s muscle tissue, and the rate of wear. Ideally the Avent Niplette should be worn in 8 hour periods per day or night. But for the best and swiftest results the Avent Niplette should be worn as much as possible during the day and at night and at the maximum suction comfortable for you. To obtain safety and to prevent soreness or nipple trauma, start out wearing the Avent Niplette for only a few hours using minimal suction. If soreness does occur there are nipple creams that can be bought to help in this case.
