For women who had a mastectomy, breast surgery or irregular areolas, nipple areola tattoo treatment is a great way of given back one’s self confidence. We work alongside reconstructive surgeons and deliver a high standard of areola restoration. Nipple reconstruction is done after the breast had sufficient time to heal. This usually takes about 4 – 6 months. Nipple areola tattooing the breast is not painful due to the lost of sensation after nipple reconstruction.
There are 3 types of options available for nipple areola tattooing, keep reading to find out what these are.
Nipple Areola Tattoo
Nipple reconstruction using skin where the surgeon make small incisions and then create a nipple with the tissue. Tattooing can then be used to create the areola around the build up nipple by adding colour to create a natural 3d effect.
3D Nipple Tattooing Technique
Instead of using skin to build up the nipple some women prefer to tattoo the nipple on the breast with a 3D nipple tattooing technique. It takes skill to do so make sure you find yourself a reliable medical tattoo artist with training in breast and nipple tattooing by having a look at their portfolio and qualification first.
Areola pigmentation can also be used to correct the colour of nipple tattoos or change the shape, make it bigger if the areola is to small etc.
We will match your nipple areola with your breast and skin tone by positioning and mixing various pigments to create the perfect end result for you. Immediately after the treatment your nipple tattoo will look very intense in colour and will fade out to a more natural shade in 7 days. One session can take 1 – 3 hours. Several sessions will be needed to get the perfect result. A top up will be needed over time to keep your nipple tattoo fresh.
