Nipple & Areola Micropigmentation

WHAT IS BREAST CANCER AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
“YOU HAVE CANCER” are the three words no one ever wants to hear. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is one of the most devastating things that can happen to anyone. But there is hope because with the advancement in the field of medicine and technology, breast cancer treatments have come very far and offers patients many choices in treatment. Between surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and prevention, there are many treatment options for breast cancer.

POST TREATMENT OPTIONS

Types of Treatments We Offer

AREOLA MICROPIGMENTATION

The most common breast cancer treatment are mastectomies. Breast cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomies are left with large scars and no areolas due to the surgical procedures. Often, it leads to feelings of depression and self-conscious thoughts and there are few options other than temporary stick-on plastic areola nipples. We offer a more semi-permanent solution.

Micropigmentation is a simple and fast procedure that is a fraction of traditional nipple reconstruction surgery which involves surgical procedures and skin grafting.Whether you have a unilateral or bilateral treatment, we can recreate a 3-D areola and soften any scars from the surgery. The finishing touch to breast reconstruction is having your nipple areola tattooed.

For unilateral mastectomies, we can create a new nipple areola to match the existing breast. If you had bilateral reconstructions, we can use preoperative photos to recreate and match your nipple color, or you can pick a new color that you like against your skin tone. As with any tattoo, the pigment will fade in time. Getting the right shade of color may require more than one tattoo procedure.

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION SURGICAL SCAR CAMOUFLAGE

Surgical scars from breast cancer mastectomies, breast augmentation and reductions, and reconstructive surgeries are often unsightly. We can camouflage the scars to make it less noticeable, and in some instances, virtually undetectable. By blending and matching the scar tissue to your natural skin colors, the tattoo will camouflage any scar tissues. Depending on the size of the scarring, treatments are non-invasive and can be completed within one to two sessions.

AREOLA REPIGMENTATION

Nipple areolas in both men and women change color through a variety of factors.
Causes of change in colour of our nipples and areolas :

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Dietary preferences

Areola repigmentation can restore a more youthful look by lightening extremely dark nipples, off-colored or discolored nipples or recreating symmetry and color balance. If you feel self-conscious when going to the beach or showering in public due to extremely dark colored nipples or pigment defects, areola repigmentation is the answer. The procedure is typically fast and can be done in one to two sessions. Keep in mind that going from a lighter color to a darker color is more effective. Going from darker tones to lighter tones is achievable, but may take longer due to strength and darkness of your areola color.
