Permanent Areola Repigmentation
Some breast-cancer related procedures alter women’s bodies, causing feelings of discomfort and detachment from their most intimate being.
Areola pigmentation can help restore confidence and bring that full sense of femininity. The process involves implanting pigment into the skin surrounding the nipple of a breast following breast and nipple reconstruction due to breast cancer.
First, I draw on the areola using a custom-blended pigment color that best matches the client’s coloring. After an agreement is reached on the size, shape and color of the new areola, the pigment is implanted into the skin.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes per side and is usually painless. Topical anesthetic is used if any discomfort is felt during the procedure.
