For best results, take special care when choosing a piercer. Although the procedure for an inverted nipple piercing does not change much from a typical nipple piercing, precise placement, piercing angle, jewelry sizing, and techniques are critical to freeing the nipple fully and evenly.
Unfortunately, not all body piercers have training/experience in handling this variation of body piercing. Commonly, we see mis-placed piercings and poor jewelry choices (too thin), which can lead to the body rejecting the new piercing and failure of the inversion correction.
We always recommend a consultation for an assessment of your personal anatomy to see if you are a good candidate for corrective piercing. Seek a piercer with specific knowledge and/or training on this subject. The Association of Professional Piercers (safepiercing.org) has a list of members near you, which can be a good starting point.
