What is Paramedical Areola Tattooing?
*Paramedical areola tattooing is a procedure done to recreate the appearance of a nipple and areola after a mastectomy or top surgery. It creates the illusion of a nipple if one isn't placed in surgically, but creates a natural look to the breast adding an areola. The procedure is done after you have healed completely. You are looking at 6 months minimum for the scar tissue to be ready. A consultation is always set up prior to the first appointment to assess the area to be tattooed, go over the procedure and healing, and prepare you for the next step. There is generally a follow up procedure to perfect the over all look after the tattoo has healed.
*Areola tattooing can also be used after breast implants or reduction surgery to help conceal any scarring.
* This can be used to help with shape and color adjustments as well.
* The procedure is good for any scarring or shape distortion for those who have undergone top surgery.
