Barbie was my favorite doll when I was growing up, but I never would have guessed that one day she and I would have the same torso.
After a mastectomy there are options to look like a “Real” woman but they all involve some form of added pain…reconstructive nipple surgery, nipple tattooing, etc., and I am done being poked and stabbed for now.
Plus, the women I have spoken with who had these done are finding after a year the tattoos fade and need to be touched up and after several years the reconstructed nipple collapses.
But there is another option and it arrived on my doorstep…PROSTHETIC NIPPLES.
Originally, I borrowed a set of pink-perfect prosthetic nipples from my breast surgeon, Dr. Christopher Low, for my mastectomy photo series but after a year with no nipples I caved and ordered my very own shiny new nipples.
Pink-Perfect.com makes a variety of colors and styles to best fit your skin tone and sassiness, as well as custom nipples if you need to match your existing single nipple.
I am a BOLD CORAL gal. Watch me unbox and try them on in this new brand new YouTube Video.
Who would have thought that after spending our lives hiding our nipples, one day we would be glueing nipple shaped pasties on? You always want what you can't have.
If you had a mastectomy, what did you do about the nipples? Comment below!
