What is inverted nipple?

Inverted nipple is a condition where the nipple, instead of pointing outward, is retracted into the breast or flat.

For serious cases of inverted nipple, it may cause infection, pain, papilitis.
Also, breast feeding is impossible after giving birth, so correction is needed.
