Areola Reconstruction

Absence of the areola, like absence of the nipple, can be congenital or acquired. Areola Reconstruction can be performed non-surgically with tattooing, or surgically with a skin graft. The skin graft gives a three dimensional result. The skin graft may still require tattooing to match the color of the contralateral areola of the other breast.
