Breast Implants, Nipple
Definition : Implants designed for replacement, restoration, and or enhancement of a breast nipple that has been surgically removed. Breast nipple implants are an elastomeric (e.g., all-silicone) device with a partially visible outer face (i.e., the part resembling the nipple) that is usually covered with an outer coating that resembles the nipple in appearance and texture. Nipple breast implants are used in reconstructive surgery after total or partial mastectomy and/or for cosmetic purposes.
