Nipple reconstruction from inner thigh

hi there, this is what my PS is planning for me around April. I haven't seen him since last year after a few check ups after my DIEP flap.

I didn't want to ask him so ahead of time regarding the details.

Has anyone had this specific procedure from the inner thigh? is it a day visit in the hospital or is it a stay over? Also how long is recovery for your inner thighs? I assume the areola gets tattooed around the new reconstructed nipples?
