The Art of Nipple Reconstruction
By: Brandy (Korman) Haslam
If you're like me, you're really curious to know how your surgeon reconstructs your nipple after your breast reconstruction surgery. Although there are many different ways to do the procedure, the bow-tie method, which gets its name from the bow-tie shaped incision, is the method used by PRMA surgeons. This procedure can be done during your revision stage in the operating room, or as a separate procedure in the office. The nipple and areola are later tattooed to match your original color by the nurse during an in-office procedure.
Sit back, relax and watch Dr. Ledoux as he performs a nipple reconstruction procedure, live!
