Nipple Reconstruction

  • Dr. Rad uses refined nipple reconstruction techniques to add the finishing touches on a beautiful result.
  • Reconstructed nipples are then tattooed to give the lifelike appearance of areolar color and glandular structures.

Recommended Procedures

  • Dr. Rad utilizes the ‘Top Hat Flap’ method of nipple reconstruction.
  • Dr. Rad has performed nipple reconstruction on hundreds of patients.

    Other Options

    • Patients can elect not to have nipple reconstruction and instead opt only for tattooing.

    How It’s Done

    • The ‘Top Hat Flap’ method is like origami: Dr. Rad transforms a 2-D pattern on the breast skin into a 3-D shape that looks like a nipple.

    Safety

    • Nipple reconstruction is very safe and can be done in the office under local anesthesia.
    • However, oftentimes Dr. Rad combines it with other procedures that require surgery to be performed in an operating facility.
