Imagine looking into the mirror and once again feeling complete and confident since your surgery following breast cancer. Nipple and areola restoration is a skilled tattooing procedure using custom-blended skin tone pigments to re-create your natural areola and give you the illusion that you have realistic, 3D nipples. If you already have nipple mounds, we can enhance these further by adding more definition. With a unilateral reconstruction, every effort is made to closely match your natural breast. It takes two sessions that are 6-8 weeks apart to perfect your makeover.
The procedure can be done as soon as 4-6 months after your final surgery. We will determine in the consult session if you are ready to be tattooed. All planned surgical procedures and treatments must be completed including tissue expansion, implant placement, and nipple reconstructions. Even if it has been several years since your reconstruction, it’s never too late for tattooed nipples!
