Ariola saving mastectomy anyone or purse string op/scar?

I have decided to have the strattice implant with purse string scar to avoid more scaring as I already have a lumpectomy scar....but Ive since found out about Ariola saving....Ive not heard of this before and my surgeon had not talked about it. Ive already signed my consent for op and may ask to change to ariola saving as can still remove my nipple then...anyone have any experience of either type of op i mention above. I realise I cant have purse string if I want to keep my ariola!
