    Dr. Rebecca is passionate about plastic and reconstructive surgery and about making innovative products to improve patients' self-esteem, satisfaction and surgical experiences.

Dr. Rebecca and her team have developed a solution for practitioners to systematically and consistently tattoo nipple areolar complexes for patients after mastectomies. The device provides a novel method of tattooing the nipple areolar complex using layered stencils on reconstructed breasts.
