Nipples, should I or shouldn't I?

I just read a post from seof about this topic, but I think it's sort of lost in the sea of posts, so I'll ask again. I'm scheduled (on December 29th) to have my bilateral post-DIEP 'tune up' which will consist of reducing the breast on the non-radiated side to the size of the breast on the radiated side. My doctor said that he could probably do the nipples at the same time. Before he said this, I had pretty much decided not to do the nipples, partly because he does a simple procedure in the office, and frankly, I'm a bit tired of office procedures. But, seeing he could do it at the same time as the reduction, I am reconsidering.

What are the pros and cons? I know it's my decision, but this is a topic about which I know nada. Please help!
