Nur Kesim A practical dressing method after nipple–areola reconstruction: the syringe stent Published online: 17 March 2004 Springer-Verlag 2004 Dear Sir, A number of techniques have been introduced for nipple– areolar reconstruction as part of breast reconstruction following mastectomy. The two main approaches to nipple reconstruction involve the use of local flaps and free grafts taken from the contralateral nipple or the labia minora [1, 2, 3]. A proven method of areolar reconstruc- tion is to use a full-thickness skin graft taken from the upper–inner thigh or the groin. Tattooing can be used as an alternative method for areola reconstruction, eliminat- ing the need for a donor site . An effective dressing is the key to a successful reconstruction of the nipple–areola complex when a combined use of local flap and skin graft is considered. Several methods have been described for this purpose [5, 6]. We have developed a simple and practical dressing method following nipple–areola reconstruction by local Fig. 1 Preparation for the tie-over stent using a 10-ml syringe flaps
