Nipple Reconstruc
tion

Nipple reconstruction is usually intended for women who had to lose their nipple to a mastectomy or lumpectomy, and may be performed during breast reconstruction, or as a follow-up procedure. The protruding nipple shape is often molded with a flap of skin on the reconstructed breast. For reconstruction of the areola, skin is often taken from other body parts, and then tattooed once healing is complete to match the color of the natural areola.
