You could also look into a nipple share, if your other nipple is big enough. I had this done on my recon, and it gives a really good match. You still need the areola tattooed on.
Thanks for that Flossy03, I'll definitely look at that after op next Tuesday and the planned radiotherapy/chemotherapy. Never heard of 3D tattoos so sounds very intriguing 🙂
Diagnosed a couple of weeks ago with breast cancer and felt I was getting through it day by day, had learned in 2013 when I had colon cancer to try not to worry about what could possibly happen and concentrate on the here and now, but everything has gone out the window today as I've been told lump is not 2cm as they thought but at least 8cm and near the surface so I'll definitely not have a nipple after the operation! I'm beginning to get my head around how much of my breast will have to be removed but not having a nipple is freaking me out!!!! Anyone out there have any advice?
