Medical nipple reconstruction
“Finally I feel completely ….”
In the diagnosis of breast cancer, the medical consequence is often a complete surgery. If this medical act is followed by the reconstruction of the breast, the reconstruction of the nipple and the nipple vest is often dispensed with. A chest without a breast wart – an eerie self-image for most women. And so, in 2008, Andy Engel reached the first request of a patient who wanted to give her body a natural look after a surgical reconstruction of her breast with a realistic imitation of the nipple.
Thanks to Andy Engel’s pronounced love of filigree detail – coupled with the artistic ability to make realistic and lifelike tattoos – he tattooed the patient’s first three-dimensional nipple and the areola. The visible result was so exhilarating for her that she also expressed her emotional well-being in the spontaneous sentence “I feel completely at last!”.
Since then, Andy Engel has realized numerous nipple reconstructions in his studio – of course always accompanied by educational counseling sessions and in collaboration with many gynecologists and gynecologists.
