Nipple Reconstruction | Auburn, AL
Once your reconstruction has been performed and you are happy with the outcome, you can choose to have the nipple reconstructed. Nipple reconstruction is performed in a variety of ways. The most common way to reconstruct a nipple is by using local skin flaps to create a projecting mound of tissue. Pigment is then added to the reconstructed nipple and areola with tattooing. Some women prefer to have only tattooing. We perform 3-D nipple tattooing to give a more natural appearing nipple areolar complex than traditional tattoo techniques. The decision is yours. Insurance will almost always pay for the procedure. For more information please visit, Learn More.
