I have seen several different ways of making a nipple after reconstruction. They all involve using existing breast skin and a tattoo. Has any one done a nipple and areola made for a graft from the goin area? How painful was the graft area? How long did it take to heal? (graft and Goin) What are the risk/ adavantages of the different methods? Is there any pictures of this type of graft? Please help me on this issue.
My PS Recommends a NIpple Graft from the Groin Area. Is This a Good Idea?
