Secondary nipple reconstruction using AlloDerm results in improved nipple projection. This was demonstrated in seven of eight nipple reconstructions (88 percent). In the only nipple that flattened, a tertiary reconstruction again using AlloDerm resulted in good projection. This limited experience has demonstrated that AlloDerm is simple to use, well tolerated, and has the potential for improved long-term nipple projection. Further studies are warranted.
