Nipple/Areola Reconstruction Austin
Nipple/areola reconstruction is one of the final steps done to complete the breast reconstruction process. There are two methods of creating the natural and realistic look of a nipple and areola. The first method involves surgically creating a nipple, and then getting the nipple and surrounding skin tattooed to complete the nipple/areola complex. The second method involves skipping the surgical creation of a nipple and undergoing 3-dimensional nipple/areola tattooing instead. Both methods are very good options and can be completed as an office procedure. Many patients feel that getting their nipple/areola complex reconstructed helps visually turn their reconstructed breast mounds into a more natural and complete breast appearance.
