3D Areola Pigmentation
3D Areola Pigmentation & Nipple Simulation is a form of a custom tattoo that provides breast cancer survivors with an incredibly realistic nipple and areola results. A 3D areola illusion is created by using our unique highlighting and shading techniques. Areola Pigmentation is the final step of the breast reconstruction process. One that has such an emotional impact on breast cancer survivors and helps women feel “whole” and “normal” again. The procedure is usually reimbursable by most major insurance companies.

Step 1 – Design:
Single or double mastectomy; detailed measurement and positioning is done. Often ladies like to bring in pictures to show the look they hope to achieve.
Step – Color:
An areola and nipple can be tattooed in a color to closely to match your own and give a 3Dimensional impression or we will choose the most natural looking color for you. Our colors are custom blended & non-toxic.
Step 3 – Process:
Our equipment uses acupuncture size needles that gently vibrates on the dermal layers of the skin depositing pigment into the skin. A pigment is precisely applied in thin layers until the ideal color and shape are achieved creating a completely natural look. During the 1st session, less is more. This session is about getting a nice base started and the fine-tuning takes place in the touch up appointment. Several topical anesthetics and desensitizing products are used to make the procedure as pain-free as possible.
Step 4 – Touch-up:
You’ll return 12 weeks after your 1st session for a touch-up appointment to review the color and shape and make minor adjustments and perfection if needed to ensure that you have the look that you want to achieve.
