Nipple Tattooing

If you still have some sensation, how bad will nipple tattoos hurt? Any chance of adding additional risks with tattooing?

Has Anyone Gone Back Under The Knife For A FLAP Surgery Reconstruction After Having Implants/reconstruction?

Has Anyone Gone Back Under The Knife For A FLAP Surgery Reconstruction After Having Implants/reconstruction?

I'm considering it. I hate how hard my breasts feel. Its been 8 years since my reconstruction. I never really cared before but after getting divorced (18 yrs married) I'm self conscious about them. Plus a few years ago, I received a notice that the implants I have are potentially causing cancer in some patients. I'd like to get rid of them. I'm nervous about the FLAP surgery reconstruction. Any feedback would be helpful and appreciated.

Capsular Contracture

Capsular Contracture

I had my mastectomy and reconstruction 8 years ago. Had a local recurrence last summer and had radiation which caused the capsular contracture. It’s not painful but has shrunk my implant a size smaller than other one. Want to have untreated side made smaller. Has anyone else done this? Did insurance cover that side? Would appreciate any advise
