Please be aware that it is extremely difficult to reproduce colors that match your natural nipple-areola colors. The natural nipple-areola changes color and shape with temperature and other factors, so it’s a moving target. The same issue would apply to color matching for surgical nipple reconstruction or tattooing. Also, due to variances in silicone thickness and color dyes, the resulting nipple may not exactly match the color sample you viewed. The nipple color you choose can be different than the areola color. Our goal is to achieve a satisfactory approximate model and color that conveys the essence of your natural nipple-areola.

How are Naturally Impressive nipples colored?

Coloration of your Naturally Impressive nipples (and color samples) is throughout, not painted on. Thus the translucent properties of this silicone gives your nipple fuller color depth with variations related to nipple (areola) thickness vs the flat color appearance of painted nipples.

How easy are Naturally Impressive nipples to apply?

You simply brush adhesive on the back of the prosthesis, allow to dry and apply it to your breast mound. This is true for both Pros-Aide water based adhesive and Telesis silicone based adhesive.

Wouldn't "stick on" silicone nipples be easier to use?

Self stick nipple prostheses (comes with adhesive pre-applied) might sound like a good idea...nice and easy, just like window cling. However, the body is much different than a window surface. Dust and/or body oils accumulate on the "self stick" adhesive. Thus, with each successive application, the "stick on" nipple diminishes adhesive effectiveness making it frustratingly unreliable. NI nips use renewable adhesive assuring consistent performance with each application. Self stick nipple prosthetics often need to be taken off at bedtime and don't stay on dependably for sex or for swimming. NI nips use renewable adhesive assuring a more consistent, reliable performance.

How long do Naturally Impressive nipples last?

Naturally Impressive nipple prosthetics are made from medical grade platinum silicone. They are a high quality product. However, wear and tear of the thin silicone nipple edges may affect appearance and/or performance over time.
We could add plastics to the silicone to make it more durable (as some companies do), but this negatively affects the realism of appearance and texture. We prefer to give you the most realistic looking and feeling nipple prosthesis possible for a reasonable price.
Using Telesis silicone based adhesive, Naturally Impressive nipples may last about 3 months.
Using Pros-Aide water based adhesive, your Naturally Impressive nipple prosthetics may last about 9 to 12 months.
See catalog for adhesive details.

After spending years trying to hide my nipples before breast cancer, I'm not sure I want to deal with that again.

That's part of the beauty of the Naturally Impressive option vs surgical reconstruction. You haven't made a permanent decision. You can wear them or not as you wish. We also have several models with very low projection (1-2mm), so you have the full sense of visual normalcy without having to worry about "headlights". Best of both worlds!

I have sensitive skin. How do I know the adhesive won't cause a rash?

Both Pros-Aide and Telesis adhesives have been carefully tested by independent labs for safety. It would be rare to have a dermal irritation from either of these medical grade adhesives, but we encourage women with sensitive skin, radiated skin or thin skin over implants to use shorter first time wear to verify skin condition. If you notice skin irritation, discontinue use. We appreciate you letting us know if this occurs.

Does insurance cover Naturally Impressive, LLC nipple-areola prostheses?

Please do not assume coverage until you verify the specifics with your insurance company. Naturally Impressive, LLC does not bill insurance companies directly. Even if covered, deductibles are always a consideration in terms of receiving actual payment. Pre-tax health savings accounts are a good reliable payment option for many clients. Many are motivated to purchase Naturally Impressive, LLC nipple prosthetics even if their insurance won't reimburse. The extraordinary quality of Naturally Impressive nipples provide the result they have been searching for in nipple-areola restoration.
