Regardless of which method of breast reconstruction is chosen, nipple reconstruction and areolar tattoo can be performed as follow-up procedures. Nipple reconstruction is typically performed about 8-12 weeks after reconstruction (giving the original incision time to heal). Using a small flap of skin, the nipple is reconstructed on an outpatient basis using local anesthetic.

Why Consider Nipple Reconstruction?

Although not essential, these last steps create the most natural looking breast reconstruction and provide women with a sense of comfort.
