areola & mastectomy tattooing
Are you a breast cancer survivor looking to reclaim what’s been lost? Do you wish you could add color back to your areola after a reconstructive surgery? Areola tattooing is the solution!
The road a breast cancer survivor takes is a long and challenging one. I’m passionate about helping women complete their journey with hyper-realistic tattoos that can bring back a sense of self and wholeness.
Surgery often leaves scars around the areola, breasts and can even affect areola and nipple color. By color matching the existing areola color or choosing a new color you love, we can create the exact look you want!
Tattooing can only be done after treatment and surgeries have been fully completed. Type of surgery and location of scars will be a big deciding factor in when the skin can be tattooed.
Mastectomy tattooing is done in 2 sessions, 10 weeks apart. Adding color to your areola or camouflaging an areola scar usually take about 2 sessions.
Part of your consultation will be used for assessing your current shape, any scars you may have and skin tone. This information will all be used to create the best tattoo specifically for you!
I prefer to use bandages (like Tegaderm) that help your body do all the healing. It’s waterproof, yet breathable and holds in all the good healing enzymes. By the time your bandage comes off in 5-7 days, your tattoo should be mostly healed!
