Is there any possible surgery that can bring back the nipple?

Create a new nipple
There are two major techniques that can be used for nipple reconstruction:
-Skin graft and flap surgery
The first is self-explanatory. A pigmented tattoo is placed to give the appearance of a nipple areolar complex. There is no nipple projection in this case, however, and the nipple remains flat.
In the second situation, a skin graft is taken from a hidden area (usually the lower abdomen or groin) and it is used to create an areaola. Local skin flaps are then raised and converted into a projecting nipple. This looks more natural in clothing as well as when naked.
For balancing the buttock, the best option is to perform liposuction of a fuller area of the body (the lower abdomen but perhaps the other buttock) and then to inject this fat into the other buttock. Some plastic surgeons call this a Brazilian Butt Lift, but the correct terminology is buttock augmentation with autologous fat grafting.
Both of these services may be covered by your insurance as they are post-traumatic and reconstructive in nature. Find a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to evaluate your options.
