Background: The pigment density and texture of breast skin are not uniform. Especially in patients with massive breasts, lower pole skin can be significantly darker and coarser than the upper pole skin. Nipple areola reconstructing (NAR) reduction mammaplasty is a technical modification of the free nipple procedure in which the original nipple areola complex (NAC) is discarded and the new NAC is reconstructed from coarse pigmented lower pole skin using a modified skate flap purse-string technique.
