Nipple reconstruction is a perhaps the most delicate part of the breast reconstructions that usually follow a mastectomy. David A. Feldmar, M.D. is expert at all aspects of breast and nipple reconstruction.
While some women use nipple prostheses, which generally can last for a few months, most women prefer a permanent reconstruction of the nipple over the long term. There are several possible techniques for creating a new nipple, either by transferring tissue from elsewhere in the body or using tissue located in the area of the breast. In the case of a single mastectomy, nipple reconstruction can require some extra finesse from a plastic surgeon in order to “match” the nipple on the remaining breast.
The good news is that Dr. David A. Feldmar is an expert surgeon with the touch of an artist who has achieved outstanding breast and nipple reconstruction results for numerous women. For more information, please call Dr. Feldmar at 310-955-4009 for a complimentary initial consultation. He and his expert staff are looking forward to hearing from you.
