Abstract

We have described a surgical method that enhances the visual aesthetic outcome of the areola periphery in nipple-areola complex reconstruction. This technique is performed immediately following closure of the nipple flap. The created areolar outline can aid the tattoo artist and may result in a more natural-appearing areola periphery than tattooing methods alone.
