After breast cancer surgery many women are left with both emotional and physical scars from the invasive experience. Often, breasts are left disfigured, looking nothing like they did prior to the surgery. Zipper- type scars and nipples that are rebuilt or absent are often side effects of the surgeries.

Breast cancer survivor Michelle Kolath-Arbel is the owner and CEO of Pink Perfect, a company that designs and sells custom, prosthetic adhesive nipples for survivors of breast cancer.

This a simple, low-tech, and elegant solution to a problem that is traditionally handled surgically, and thus, expensively. So many people undergo this surgery every year, and these new designs could truly disrupt the industry in a positive way.
