It's SO hard to wait!
-for pathology report or test results
-to be done with chemo / radiation
-to be done with breast reconstruction
That moment when you're finally done with treatment and breast reconstruction is so exciting! The next thought is to get nipples and you'll be completely done with it all and able to feel "normal" again. Sounds so simple, but a good nipple solution can be frustratingly elusive.
If you're planning to have a permanent option like nipple tattoos or surgical nipple reconstruction, you might get the news that you need to wait at least 3 to 6 months for tissue to settle. That can feel like forever to have to look in the mirror and see a "blank slate" or lopsided chest. We never knew how important our nipples were before we lost them, did we?
But wait...you CAN have nipples much sooner! Our affordable pricing & wide selection of colors & features can help you create a 3D simulation of your desired nipple reconstruction goal to show your MD / tattoo artist. They aren’t mind readers. As the old saying goes "A picture is worth a thousand words."
Because it's really hard to tell color on a computer monitor, Naturally Impressive offers one free exchange, to adjust model and/or color, within two weeks of receiving your new prosthetic nipples. It's fun to see how often that one exchange can help you fine tune and give you confidence about nipples that feel just right for you.
Some of our clients like to use Naturally Impressive nipples over tattoos when they want some extra "perk" / dimension. Please check with your tattoo artist first as skin dyes and process varies a lot.
Like this woman, some decide they like their Naturally Impressive nipples so much, why go through any more pain or risk of complications?
