Pictures of Normal Nipples and Areola Anatomy of the Breast

Relaxed Nipple
normal nipple relaxed Erect Nipple Normal Nipple Relaxed can be flat or project. Nipple Erection pushes the nipple out from the breast.
areola muscle relaxed areola muscle stimulated The Relaxed Muscle is under the skin. Stimulated Muscle shrinks the areola and erects the nipple.
ducts nipples relaxed ducts nipple stimulated Nipple Ducts connect gland to surface. Normal ducts permit nipple erection with stimulation.

The nipple is the central projection in the areola. Both tend to be darker than the surrounding breast skin. The nipple itself has small openings on the surface where the ducts (milk or lactiferous duct) connect to the breast glands and permit the delivery of milk. Stimulation (cold, sexual, stress, fear, direct contact) typically causes nipple erection. Inverted nipple anatomy is different.
