Nipple Reconstruction San Francisco
Performed by The Maas Clinic
Nipple reconstruction is a surgical procedure to restore the breast as much as possible to its normal appearance, either using a flap from a donor site (another body part), or tattoo in form of a nipple.
Typically it is used for woman that have undergone mastectomy following cancer, but it can also be used for those that wish to alter the appearance of their nipple.
Nipple reconstruction is also used to treat inverted nipples, which can cause functional problems and emotional concerns.

The nipple reconstruction procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, which can be combined with a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction. The surgery typically takes thirty minutes to an hour.
