After breast reconstruction surgery, you may want to further enhance your results by restoring the appearance of nipples, unless you had a nipple-sparing mastectomy. If you are a candidate for it, nipple reconstruction may be the right way for you to achieve the final results you want.
As a breast reconstruction patient, there are a number of options available to you. Choices surrounding this procedure are extremely personal, and we'll do everything we can to help you make the choices that are right for you. Areola pigmentation and nipple reconstruction are two such options that you may find fit your goals. These are two procedures that can be completed at any time, as well, so even if you've been reconstructed years ago, this is still an option for you.
Although the reconstructed nipple will not have any sensitivity, for some women just the appearance of a nipple improves their confidence and self-esteem. Other women use adhesive options or permanent 3-D tattoos, and some women choose not to create the appearance of a nipple at all. There are many options, and we believe you should feel empowered to make decisions about your breast reconstruction, with information and support from our team.
