3D Nipple / Areola Color Enhancement

When it comes to breast reconstruction, nipple and areola enhancement are typically the final step. This treatment is a form of micropigmentation, or cosmetic tattooing. Our team is extremely fortunate to have one of the only tattoo artists in the region who specializes in 3D nipple tattoos.

Areola re-pigmentation and 3D nipple tattooing are a specialty area of medical tattooing, it is an art form. Tattooing can help improve the appearance of both women and men who have undergone breast surgery. 3D nipple techniques “create” a natural looking breast after reconstruction surgery.

Areola Tattooing

What to expect

As part of their breast reconstruction, many patients want their areola to match their new breast. You’ll discuss your vision with our artist during your pre-treatment consultation.

During treatment, the artist will measure and outline the nipple area. Then, she will embed organic pigment beneath the skin to create a natural, permanent and beautiful nipple and areola.

Most patients feel little to no discomfort. We apply topical numbing 20 minutes prior to the treatment.  You will leave the office with bandages on the tattoos, aftercare products and aftercare instructions. The second session can be done 4 to 8 weeks after your initial session.
