A breast cancer survivor who was unhappy with existing products for breast reconstruction, launched a new prosthetic nipple product.

The woman behind the company, said that when she tested existing nipple products, they were hard and uncomfortable.

“Pink Perfect produces a variety of custom-made and ready-made nipples. These nipples are hand-made by an artist, who is herself a breast cancer survivor. They are intended for women who have undergone unilateral or bilateral mastectomies,” the company states on its website.

“They look and feel real!” The company boasts.

Michelle Kolath Arbel wrote the following on her company’s website.

In 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to undergo chemotherapy sessions along with one sided mastectomy and breast reconstructive surgery afterwards.

After three operations, I looked at myself in the mirror and was not satisfied. My breast had been replaced but something was missing, the topping on the cake.

I looked for temporary nipple replacement solutions, but was not ready for yet another operation to reconstruct my nipple artificially. I had to wait at least 6 months for that kind of operation.

I kept searching for a solution and was in touch with vendors who offered nipple prosthesis. However, none of them was suitable for my needs or resembled the look and feel of a real nipple.

I decided to learn how to make one by myself. After acquiring professional expertise in silicone prosthesis making, I was able to produce a high quality nipple prosthesis, which I have been using ever since.

I got my self-confidence back. I was able to dress (and undress) regularly without having to worry that something was missing, wear swimsuits again and share intimate moments.?

I made a decision to give women the same satisfaction of having a realistic nipple attached to the breast and feel whole again.

Pink Perfect accompanies you all through the recovery steps with patience, care and empathy while providing you with the best product of its kind!
