This was a lot more appealing to me than grafting the nipples from another part of my body. About two months after nipple reconstruction I had the areolas tattooed on and now I'm done with my "makeover." For the first time in my adult life I can go without a bra...it is terrific. A heck of a thing to have to go through to get nice breasts and a flat stomach!
