Areola Re-pigmentation is the final stage of breast reconstruction and is also considered by those with areola colour loss. After the nipple reconstruction is completed, the tattooing process may begin, 6-12 weeks post surgery.
“For many of my clients this is the end of a terrible journey and now they can move forward with their lives”
What is Areola Tattooing ?
After mastectomy or reconstruction due to breast cancer or a medical condition, 3D Areola tattooing could be something to consider helping with the appearance of a woman’s anatomy to make them look normal again. It also draws attention away from the scar caused by mastectomy and other imperfections.
Areola recolouring is not just for women who have had surgery, this procedure is also known to help people with loss of areola colour or who have small uneven areola. It is an effective semi-permanent procedure that allows clients to feel more confident about their body.
The procedure takes about 1 ½ hour we ask you to apply an Emla numbing patch 1 hour before the treatment, this can be purchased at the chemist.
On the day we will measure and draw the shape before we start. The colour will look bright for 5 days then it will settle by 40%. You will go home with after instructions, after one month a perfection visit may be needed.
This will last 2 to 3 years, to maintain the colour its best to have touch-ups within 2 years at a discounted rate.
Beauty is about making everything about “YOU” the best it can be!
