Nipple tattoo after breast reconstruction surgery. Post-operative view of the breasts of a 52-year-old woman who has had surgery to excise breast cancer from her left breast (upper centre). The operation was a removal of part of the breast and the nipple, followed by reconstruction of the breast using a DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforator) flap. This flap of tissue (skin, fat and blood vessels) is taken from the lower abdomen (scar visible here) and attached to the mastectomy site to reconstruct the shape and appearance of the excised breast. The final stage, shown here, is the addition of a nipple tattoo to the reconstructed breast. For a sequence showing this patient before and after surgery, see images C038/9455 to C038/9457.
