Nipple reconstruction by dermal-epidermal advancement flaps from the latissimus dorsi skin island was performed in 10 consecutive patients. There was no tissue loss and the nipples are still prominent 16 months after operation. The technique avoids further donor-site distortion and benefits from the use of available tissues with uninterrupted circulation.
