Relocating the nipple areola complex as a composite graft

Oren Lapid

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Achieving a good shape of the breast is not sufficient to complete a reconstruction. The presence and correct positioning of a nipple areola complex (NAC) is important for a good esthetic result. This is demonstrated by the unsatisfactory result in cases of NAC malposition. Two cases are presented in which revision was performed by transferring the NAC as a composite graft. This approach achieved improvement in the esthetic result and the patient satisfaction. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.
