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 [4]. 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].
