The Asteame Nipple Guard

One of the least publicized aspects of breast reconstruction is that the nipple generally flattens, often within weeks of the nipple reconstruction surgery. This can have a lasting, negative psychological impact on a woman.

The Nipple Guard is a protective, reinforced bandage that lessens compression, shear, and tensile forces, mainly due to scar tissue contraction on the new nipple, allowing the nipple to heal in an upright / protruded position.

"I used the Nipple Guards for 4 months after surgery and am thrilled with the results. They were easy to use and comfortable.  And my husband loves the results too!  Plus, now I don't feel embarrassed if I am changing in front of others in the locker room at the gym or when I'm traveling with friends." -- Sandy Lenington

"The Nipple Guard protects the reconstructed nipple from direct pressure and is an effective means of preserving nipple projection after nipple reconstruction."
