Claims

1. A nipple implant assembly comprising:

an implant skeleton structure comprising:

a base portion;

a tip, and

a support structure connecting said base with said tip,

wherein the implant skeleton is made of a memory-shape material,

wherein said nipple implant assembly comprises a polymer coating surrounding said implant skeleton; characterised in that

the implant further comprises a slot extending from the outer circumference of the base portion to the tip, wherein the slot is configured to allow insertion of the structure around a woman's breast nerves, milk ducts and milk supply system without having to cut or disconnect the breast's natural nipple and areola.


  2. The nipple implant assembly of claim 1, wherein the implant skeleton is made of memory-shape metal.
  3. The nipple implant assembly of claim 2, wherein the implant skeleton is made of nitinol.
  4. The nipple implant assembly of claim 1 wherein the base diameter is in the range of 5-100 mm .
  5. The nipple implant assembly of claim 4 wherein the coating is made of bio-compatible polymer.
  6. The nipple implant assembly of claim 5 wherein the coating is made of silicone.
  7. The nipple implant assembly of any of the preceding claims wherein the tip further comprises a through hole allowing insertion of the structure around a woman's breast nerves and milk ducts and milk supply system without having to cut or disconnect the breast's natural nipple and areola.
  8. The nipple implant assembly of claim 2 wherein the shape formed by the implant is conical or cylindrical.
  9. The nipple implant assembly of claim 1 wherein the nipple assembly comprises at least one of a nipple implant and an areola implant.
  10. The nipple implant assembly of claim 1 wherein the implant skeleton is made of a non-metallic material.
  11. A method for forming a nipple implant assembly comprising:

providing an implant skeleton structure comprising:

a base portion;

a tip, and

a support structure connecting said base with said tip,

wherein the implant skeleton is made of a memory-shape material;

wherein said nipple implant assembly comprises a polymer coating surrounding said implant skeleton; and

characterised in that the implant further comprises a slot extending from the outer circumference of the base portion to the tip, to allow insertion of the structure around a woman's breast nerves, milk ducts and milk supply system without having to cut or disconnect the breast's natural nipple and areola.


  12. The method of claim 11, wherein the implant skeleton is made of memory-shape metal.
  13. The method of claim 11, wherein the implant skeleton is made of nitinol.
  14. The method of claim 12, further providing coating to the implant made of bio-compatible polymer or silicone.
