Prosthetic areola/nipple replacement quells the traumatic physical loss that women may feel in addition to the innumerable psychological difficulties they may encounter.
First, careful measurements and impressions of the original areolas and nipples are taken prior to the mastectomy or mirror imaging of the other breast after a unilateral mastectomy is utilized. By either method, women retain the appearance of natural, real nipples. The prosthetic nipple is then adhered to the breast by an adhesive.
This unique nipple replacement service has a tremendous benefit. The seemingly real nipple draws one’s eyes away from the defect or scar and restores symmetry to this area of the body.
One patient illustrates their praise by saying:
“Without enduring the trauma of multiple surgical procedures to recreate a nipple/areola, this technique compliments the initial reconstruction without the added pain and distress of further surgery.”
The prosthetic nipple restores realism where tattooing and reconstructive surgery fall short of one’s expectations.
