Understanding Breast Micro-Pigmentation
Those who have undergone reconstructive breast surgery or other breast surgery can choose to have medical micro-pigmentation otherwise known as cosmetic tattooing. Micro-pigmentation, when done correctly, can restore the aesthetic appearance of the breast and the confidence of the individual. A hyper-realistic effect is created using highlights and shadows with pigments that mimic the natural features and coloring of the areola and nipple complex.
Positive Results That Change Lives
Post Mastectomy Breast Reconstruction – A realistic and natural looking areola and nipple complex can be created to complete the healed mastectomy procedure. A three dimensional, multi-tonal tattoo is used to create the perception of depth. Some patients prefer not to have surgical nipple reconstruction and will opt for a 3D Areola Nipple Complex Tattoo. Patients can now decide what color and size they would like to be. In the case of a unilateral mastectomy the areola and nipple complex is matched to the adjacent breast. For patients who have chosen to have nipple reconstruction, a dimensional effect is used to re-pigment the new nipple and to create the surrounding areola complex.
Lumpectomy Scars -For most patients, lumpectomy scars may not need tattooing, however for those who desire to have a less noticeable scar, micro-pigmentation can be performed to reduce the imperfection. This technique works for scars lighter than the surrounding skin.
Cosmetic Breast Surgery Scars – Skin camouflaging pigments are blended to reduce the skin color indifferences. This treatment is also beneficial to camouflage scars from Breast Lifts, Reductions, Augmentations, Gynecomastia’s, and other surgical breast scars.
Color Imbalances – Aging and genetics may play a role in fading color or shape changes and asymmetries of the breast. Cosmetic Tattooing can rebalance the areola to create more symmetry or consistency in color.
