Anybody have an areola skin graft done with their nipple reconstruction? My PS had always talked about getting an areola tattoo, but when I was there for my pre-op we decided to do the skin graft....more because I would be done sooner and not have to go back in 2 months for the tattoo (I've moved 4 hours away). I'm wondering if anybody knows the pros and cons. I had never thought about a skin graft, so I didn't do any research on it. I did have DIEP reconstruction without any problems, so I'm hoping this goes smoothly as well.
