Jandali Plastic Surgery offers nipple reconstruction for patients in Connecticut, Fairfield County, Norwalk, Westport, Wilton, Stamford, Weston, Easton, Fairfield, Trumbull, Shelton, Bridgeport, Milford, Stratford, New Haven County, and New York.
The final stage of breast reconstruction is the creation of new nipples and tattooing of the areola. The nipple reconstruction can be performed in the office procedure room under local anesthesia. It can also be performed in the operating room at the same time as a minor breast revision.
After the nipple reconstruction has healed for about 2-3 months, the areola can then be tattooed. If just one areola needs tattooing, the color is matched to the other natural areola that is still in place. If bilateral mastectomies were performed, then the areola color is decided with the patient and depends on the color and hue of their skin. Our professional licensed tattoo artist and nurse Jasmine Goulette performs all areolar tattooing in the safety and comfort of our office procedure room.
If you need nipple reconstruction or areolar tattooing after mastectomy for breast cancer, come visit our plastic surgery office in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Call 203-374-0310 to set up an appointment with Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shareef Jandali. We look forward to seeing you!
