Nipple/Areola Reconstruction

Creating the nipple areola is often the final component to breast reconstruction but sometimes it stands alone as a surgical procedure for those who do not like the size or shape of that part of their breast.  There are several options and it is performed as an outpatient, ambulatory procedure.  Tattooing often follows once healing has occurred and is performed in the surgeon’s office.
