Nipple Areola Reconstruction

During many mastectomies, the nipple and areola are removed (skin-sparing mastectomy). However, there are circumstances that may allow you to preserve the nipple (nipple-sparing mastectomy). You can discuss this option with your oncologic surgeon.

BreastCancerHowever, if the nipple and areola are removed, a very life-like reconstruction can be created. Creation of the nipple is often an outpatient or office procedure that uses skin from the breast in combination with a skin graft taken from another part of the body (inner thigh or abdomen). The color can then be added with a tattoo that can conceal the mastectomy scar. The nipple is often the final step in the reconstructive process.
