FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Nipple reconstruction surgery is a procedure which is usual undertaken after breast surgery to reconstruct and rebuild the nipple. The procedure is normally done 3-4 months after breast surgery.
Nipple reconstruction is usually done awake, using local anaesthesia however Dr Sof will discuss this with you at your consultation
People may use a plastic nipple protector and a surgical bra to protect the new nipple from injury. The nipple may feel sore and tender for a short period after the procedure.
Dr Sof will discuss the aftercare methods within your consultation but will cover the following:
- How long to wear the bra and bandages
- How to care for and clean the new nipple
- When to return for the postsurgical exam
During recovery, we recommend applying antibacterial ointment to the healing nipple to avoid infection.
