I tend to save the nipple-areolar complex if it is oncologically safe, that is if it is unlikely to involve cancer.  I tend to shell out the contents so that very little or any  breast tissue remains.

Factors that decrease survival of part or the whole nipple-areolar complex are:

  • Large Breasts
  • Ptosed (droopy) Breasts
  • Smokers
  • Diabetics

Reconstruction of Nipple – Areolar Complex

Nipple

  • local flap reconstruction
  • nipple share technique
    (using part of the contralateral unaffected breast nipple , and grafting it)

Areolar

  • Split skin graft (donor site usually from the inner thigh)
  • Tatooing

Tatooing the Areolar

  • Simple
  • Effective
  • Outpatient
  • Inexpensive
  • Retattoo required
