3D Areola Restoration is the process by which pigments are deposited with a micropigmentation machine (tattoo gun) directly into the dermis layer of skin to re-create the appearance of a multi-dimensional areola and nipple. This procedure is most often performed on clients who have experienced a mastectomy (surgical removal of breast tissue) due to anticipated or actual cancer. Having these features restored, can have a positively powerful effect on an individual’s self concept and quality of life! 3D Areola Restorations are just like any other cosmetic tattoo, however, with little to no sunlight exposure to fade pigments… these babies should stay pristine and beautiful for 5-10 years before needing a touch up (if at all).
Here are some before and after photos of 3D areola restoration using micropigmentation.
