Breast Nipple Reconstruction


Most commonly, the patients looking for breast-nipple-reconstruction are patients left absent nipple either by radiation or a prior surgery. With a few exceptions, for the most part during the removal of breast cancer the nipples are removed in procedure called a Mastectomy. The nipples, however, can be reconstructed comfortably under local anesthesia in office with a procedure, known as Geometric Flap Reconstruction.

This procedure creates the form of a projecting nipple about the size of a large pencil eraser and is done after healing from any other procedures on the breast. The construction of tissue only corrects the shape, not the color of the area. Which normally has darker pigmentation than the surrounding skin of the breast.

After the reconstruction at our office, if the patient so desires, we are then able to recommend specialized artists, and send patients for nipple tattooing outside of the office. The artists are then able to create color and contour in 3 dimensions by placing pigments and forming the shadowing that naturally gives a nice appearance and central focus to the appearance to the breast. Dr. Jacobsen does not personally handle the tattooing aspect, but frequently performs the flap reconstructions that are needed for the nipple areolar complex of the breast.

For most, Breast Nipple Reconstruction is the last step and can only be performed once the breast is completely reconstructed and healed before the nipple areolar complexes can be optimally placed. During the consultation Dr. Jacobsen will speak to you more in depth about the reconstruction and make sure that you will be happy with the position, placement and outcome of the breast.

Dr J and his staff look forward to understanding the details of your unique case, desires and aspirations, and to providing you with realistic, safe and attainable results that leave you looking beautiful, and truly feeling like yourself.

  • review rating 5  I'm having a hard time with this because, I can't say enough good things about this office! Dr. Jacobsen is an amazing surgeon. He is always available, for any questions or concern. His staff go way beyond any other office I have seen. They are more than helpful with insurance, appointments, or any issue or questions. The office is both beautiful, and comfy. Like I said can't say enough.

  • review rating 5  I've had four visits with Dr. Jacobsen over the past 2.5 years, the first after the removal of 1/3 of my bottom lip from skin cancer, and the last for a biopsy of possible skin cancer on my nose. Each time, he has treated me with kindness and respect, and also had a level of confidence that made me feel relaxed with whatever he thought best for the particular problem. Thus far, the results have proven him correct. He has quickly become my go-to for any problem or condition that may create a cosmetic "issue". His office and staff make you feel welcomed and comfortable, and he promptly and generously responds to questions or concerns by email. One visit and you'll find these things out yourself.

  • review rating 5  Dr. J and his entire staff are the BEST! He was personally so responsive to a weekend email about my son's accident that resulted in a cut on his chin. Dr. J and his staff made sure to fit my son in to see Dr. J immediately. We have confidence that my son's wound will heal well after receiving care from Dr. J. Thank you Dr. J!

  • review rating 5  I would have to say that so far my experience with Dr. J is quit impressive. I do not particularly like going to doctors. As it seems often times the treatment ends up being worse than the original illness to begin with. So I was referred to Dr. J due to surgical incision from two years ago from having a spinal cord stimulator put in my back. Where the battery is placed in my left hip, the incision has never close. I do have to say that the waiting area is very inviting. I would have to say that the staff are very friendly, and they go above and beyond with helping answer any questions. My initial meeting with Dr. J was great, as he understood how nervous I was to be there. He listened to me, when I expressed certain concerns. He did reassure me that although I do have to have surgery, he explained to me exactly what he was going to do, without adding a bunch of scientific names that I would not understand. He assured me that he would take great care in helping with the infection and take the necessary steps to ease any discomfort that I might have. Dr. J seems so far to be extremely understanding, and that is a rare quality that not many doctors have.

  • review rating 5  Great experience with Dr Jacobsen. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift with implant exchange and I am very happy with the results. Dr. J came to the hospital the night after I had the surgery to check on me. Very impressed. Dr J did a wonderful job and I will highly recommend him. "High Class" Doctor and office as well. Thank you. (01/10/19)

  • review rating 5  I think he’s a wonderful surgeon and extreme talent. I can in for a bilateral breast augmentation after having breast fed my 2 sons. What he did to my body and self esteem is immaculate. I’m so happy with his hand I work. I had almost NO bruising at all and they gave the the perfect amount of pain medicine to get me though and still functioning. I gave him a 5 star rating because of his skills and professionalism. How ever if you don’t come stacked with your own questions and concerns he can’t do anything for you. He’s a surgeon who knows all this stuff but not exactly the fountain of information. He will litterly only tell you and give you what you ask for. Don’t make him guess or try to let him lead the conversation when it comes to concerns and post up care. Make a list of questions and stick with it. He will answer them all perfectly. It’d help to do your research and bring your own pictures with a ‘cc’ in mind. HE WILL GIVE YOU WHATEVER YOU ASK FOR!❤️
