Areola / Nipple repigmentation
The most common reason is breast cancer. But there are other reasons. Many women lose color in their natural areolas as they age. It is also common if they have gained or gained and lost weight. The areola can become very pale in color. Repigmenting them can give a younger and sexier appearance. Also, some men and women have very small natural areolas that make them feel self-conscious. We can enlarge them to your liking and darken too if you choose.
Breast Cancer happens to both women and men however it is much more common in women but happens to men more than people realize. Men rarely talk about their breast cancer and often don’t tell even close relatives and friends that they are going through this illness. Someone very close to you could have it or have had it without you even knowing. It is equally as traumatic to men, although in some different ways.
This page will generally refer to women, but some of this does pertain to men as well and I do tattoo the areola and nipple on men as well as women. When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, a long painful physical and emotional journey begin. In addition to the physical diagnosis, fear, pain and surgeries and treatments must be endured.
Afterall the testing is completed, and the tumors and cancerous cells are completely removed, the decision is made whether or not to engage in the lengthy and process of reconstruction. This involves temporary tissue expanders to stretch and prepare the skin for a permanent breast implant. The placement of the permanent implant requires yet another surgery. Finally, many doctors today are learning advanced techniques in nipple protrusion surgery. This is yet another procedure requiring sutures and healing time, but when completed, looks quite realistic in providing the contour and projection of the nipple instead of a smooth breast mound. At the end of approximately a full year, the patient has completed the whole process and has to pick up and start back into “normal” life. Obviously, there are still emotional issues related to fear of overcoming cancer entirely, loss of one’s natural breast(s) and the scars as a daily reminder of the ordeal.
Para-medical tattooing allows the same technology and similar techniques used in permanent makeup to re-create the appearance of the natural breast areola. When the reconstructive surgical process is complete, there is a nice breast mound, often with a surgically created nipple, but no color as is found in a natural breast areola/nipple complex.
Using skin tones as a guide for color selection and careful measurements to ensure the correct size and symmetry of the areolas, a specialized process of shading and highlighting creates an amazingly realistic areola.
This becomes the final process that women tell me is the end of the chapter and puts the finishing touches on the emotional healing process, as well as the physical restoration of their breasts.
It is my passion and privilege to work with my breast cancer patients. As a woman, I have absolute compassion for their incredibly painful process of enduring the diagnosis and treatment of breast or any other form of cancer. Thankfully there are so many good treatment options and early detection methods today. Statistically, it is most common now to beat cancer and live a long and healthy life. My contribution to the restorative process allows women to put that segment of their life behind them, feel restored and beautiful in a way they could not have imagined at the beginning of their treatment and reconstruction.
