After breast cancer - do I need nipples?

This is a tough one. To nipple or not to nipple? By the way this is a personal choice. Looking back for me. I don't think it's necessary!
I think at the time I was just not sure. Probably trying to replace everything I had before. I am so confident that I didn't need them. But of course happy I have them they look really good.
You make up your mind - this year 2018 is the 10 year anniversary so you choose.
For nipples!
They look normal.
They help to get you thinking your body is getting woman hood back.
Against nipples!
Another surgery more money.
Another 6 weeks no lifting and no using arms normally.
They are always erect - so you need to wear a bra.

Now my next endeavour is to find out if 10 years I need to replace my boobs anyway. With so much happening back then, I think they said that they only last 10 years.
I will do a doctors visit and get back to you on that one.
Vanity boobs are made of different and stronger material.
The cancer ones I had put in are like a tissue outside and of course very natural looking.
I remember almost not doing the surgery and just staying flat chested. I am so happy I did that.
Some ladies that I have met on this voyage have had one removed and they are quiet happy just having one.
There is not right or wrong way to handle this choice. It's your choice only. Try not to listen to people that haven't been through what we have, because until you go here. You are only guessing what you would do. Pure and simple that's the truth.
Good luck with your choice I hope this has helped you.

"Hard nipples" - areola or nipple skin

Someone once wrote"...when i get really cold, or get goosebumbs all over my body, the whole things really scrunch up, like, my entire areola scrunches itself up into a wrinkled little mound. it looks really weird and ugly, and i haven't ever seen other people's breasts do it. what is wrong with my areola/nipples??" The answer: Well nothing is wrong. This is what my areola does too. It's a normal reaction to the coldness or to irritation / stimulation. The little muscles in the areola do a similar goosebump thing as your other skin can do. People often call this phenomenon "hard nipples". Also note that skin on areola has less feeling or sensation to it than other areas of your body. If the areola was very sensitive, then breastfeeding would probably be quite uncomfortable because the baby pulls and tugs it! The nipples are sensitive but the sensitivity changes with hormonal changes, such as occur at mestrual cycle or pregnancy. Also this varies with ind…

The four stages of breast development

In Stage 1 shows the flat breasts of childhood. By Stage 2, breast buds are formed as milk ducts and fat tissue develop. In Stage 3, the breast become round and full, and the areola darkens. Stage 4 shows fully mature breasts.

Once ovulation and menstruation begin, the maturing of the breasts begins with the formation of secretory glands at the end of the milk ducts. The breasts and duct system continue to grow and mature with the development of many glands and lobules. The rate at which breasts grow varies significantly and is different for each young woman. Breast development occurs in five stages:
Stage One: In preadolescence, the breasts are flat and only the tip of the nipple is raised.Stage Two: Buds appear, breast and nipple are raised, fat tissue begins to form and the areola (dark area of skin that surrounds the nipple) enlarge…

Linda McCartney Breast Cancer

By Alex Tresniowski
With Her Family by Her Side, Linda McCartney's Long and Winding Journey as Mother, Wife, Artist and Crusader Comes to An All-Too-Untimely End     There were 36 phone messages waiting for freelance music writer Danny Fields when he returned to his Manhattan apartment April 19 after a weekend trip. Reporters were calling about the death of his close friend Linda McCartney, who had died two days earlier at age 56 from breast cancer that had spread to her liver. Devastated by what he heard, Fields reached for the phone. "I called Paul right away," says Fields. "I said, 'Oh, Paul,' and his voice cracked for 10 seconds. We both started to cry. But then I couldn't stop, and he was consoling me. He said, 'Wasn't she great? Wasn't she beautiful? Wasn't she smart and together and wonderful and loving?' "

Praising his wife was an occupational as well as an emotional habit for McCartney, 55, who wrote dozens of love song…
