3D Restorative Aerola Tattooing

The areola is a beautiful part of the human breast and plays a key role in the aesthetic appearance. Because a person’s self-image can be affected by the appearance of the breast, a missing areola can be psychologically challenging. Areola tattooing provides the “finishing touch” after breast surgery. It helps people in the recovery process look and feel complete, providing some semblance of normal again.

This type of tattooing is the art of creating a lifelike areola/nipple with a realistic appearance. Scar reduction options are also available to improve the overall appearance.

Survivors deserve a high-quality, realistic result from a passionate and skilled artist.

Areola tattooing is a specialty area of medical tattooing that requires advanced education, training and experience. This procedure helps improve the appearance and self-esteem of those who have undergone breast surgery.

Important Facts about Areola Tattooing:

  • The tattoo is permanent and will last a lifetime, although fading over the first couple of weeks is normal. The second appointment will be to perfect the color and apply the finishing touches.
  • There is no recovery time and normal activities can be resumed immediately with few restrictions including no vigorous sweating or exercise for the first 24 hours and no swimming for seven days.
  • The tattoo needles will not puncture breast implants
  • 3D areola tattooing involves the placement of pigment into the dermis of the skin. It is also referred to as medical tattooing, micropigmentation or areola tattooing.

With Nipple Reconstruction

It is important to wait until your nipple reconstruction is complete and healed of scabbing, which typically takes about six weeks. You should not proceed with tattooing until your doctor has given you approval, at which time you can schedule an appointment.

Without Nipple Reconstruction

If you choose not to have nipple reconstruction, 3D nipple tattooing will give the extremely realistic illusion of protrusion.
