After certain types of mastectomy, the nipple and areola are removed, leaving a defect with the absence of both. The reconstruction of the areola and nipple are performed as the final stage of the process of breast reconstruction.
The nipple and areola are positioned taking into account the location of the contralateral breast.
Initially, the nipple is reconstructed with tissue from the breast itself.
The areola is subsequently reconstructed using tissue from the skin of the inguinal area (skin graft) of the patient or a tattoo can be performed.
Patients who do not want to undergo surgery can decide on a three-dimensional tattoo.
