Nipple reconstruction

My first attempt where the skin on the breast is twisted has failed so I have been looking at alternative methods. I had a reply from someone who had nipple sharing and now my breast care nurse has mentioned one which is done by using skin from 'your fanny ’ as she called it. Sounds painful has anyone had this? When I go back to see the PS i want to go armed with ideas.

How crude of your breast nurse and yes it does sound painful!


Mine was done 3.5 years ago, using skin from my back. Successful and still there…


Your consultant is the expert and will have performed this procedure many times, using the most successful of methods only I am sure.


Best of luck.
