3D nipple areola tattoo
We create the illusion of protrusion of the nipple on the breast. Often for breast cancer survivors, this procedure often leaves the patient feeling quite emotional once they see their new nipples.
After enduring the pain, fright, and distress from a cancer diagnosis, surgery and recovery, these patients are grateful to be alive! They want to have a sense of normalcy in their lives and with their bodies. This procedure takes a breast with scar tissue or no nipple, and we make it look like there is really a nipple and areola on the skin! They express a feeling of gratitude, humility and closure. It’s very gratifying to be able to provide this service to these wonderful women!
We do not accept insurance for reimbursement. The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act requires group health plans and health insurers that provide medical benefits covering mastectomy to also cover the cost of breast reconstructive surgery for women who have undergone a mastectomy. Coverage must also include all stages of reconstructive surgery of the diseased breast, procedure to restore and achieve symmetry on the opposite breast, and the cost of prostheses and complications of mastectomy. I do provide paperwork to assist in the process, if needed.
The client will need a touchup when it fades, the timing of which varies from person to person.
