I had mine a few months after Mx and LD flap - it was made from the breast skin (back skin) sort of like origami! - it was huge at first but is now very flat (1 year on), it looks fine and does "finish" the breast off. I was offered the tattooing around it but one side of the scar didn't heal well so cancelled that appt and just doing without. I would be too scared that a silicone would come off at work (I work with teenagers)! It was done under a general and was not sore, I got lipo done at the same time, my surgeon said that he could do more lipo on the nipple to plump it up at bit but at the moment that is too much hassle - the nipple op was not sore at all but the lipo operations are sore. Hope this helps

I have had are mastectomy and reconstruction last September. I do not like my reconstruction as far as i am concerned its a lump of muscle from my back., its a good imitation I t also gives me a lot of discomfort. I am wondering when they make a new nipple does it invove any pain,? or does it have any other problems?. The way I am feeling at the moment i could nt stand any more, unless its actually going to save my life..Can you change your mind later? Are there any disadvantages in not having a nipple.??
