What are the advantages of nipple reconstruction?
Women typically feel more confident when their reconstructed breasts are aesthetically similar to their original anatomy.

After breast cancer, women who undergo breast and nipple reconstruction may feel more at ease in their own bodies and tend to be more at peace with the healing process.
