Areola & Nipple Pigmentation

Healing Inside and Out

Why Would Someone Get an Areola or Breast Tattoo?

  • Medical tattooing for the breast, also known as nipple/areola micropigmentation, can be used in the following scenarios:

  • In breast reconstruction patients after a mastectomy, to recreate a natural and realistic appearing nipple areola complex.  This can be done over a nipple reconstruction or without using 3D tattooing technique.

  • After other breast procedures, such as breast reduction, where the pigment has been lost or to achieve areola symmetry.

  • To darken light areola pigment per client preference.

The areola pigmentation process provides clients with the final touches to complement the surgical process. As a rule of thumb, it is necessary to wait at least 5 months after the date of your final surgery to have your areola reconstruction procedure. The color will fade about 30-40% from the initial application and most areola procedures require at least one touch-up for the desired color. A consultation is required before booking an appointment.
