Aereola and nipple repigmentation tattoo: Breast augmentations, breast reductions, mastectomy’s, discolorations and asymmetry are just a few situations that may require re-pigmentation tattoo. We offer these services for men as well as women. We do both uni-lateral or bi-lateral re-pigmentation. A full portfolio of pictures are available in our office. Our artistry will complete the process of your breast construction.
Most women who choose to do areola repigmentation or nipple tattooing do so because they do not want anymore surgeries. Others find the nipple reconstruction they had done, has flattened out and is no longer dimensional. Many find it helps to return a sense of normalcy and femininity to her body and sense of self. Discolorations in the skin can be colored to more closely match your own flesh tone. The difference is amazing and women tell us they feel this was just what they needed.
This procedure is a highly specialized practice of tattooing that restores the natural looking color and shape of an areola after breast reconstruction. This can be done in conjunction with surgical nipple reconstruction. If there is no nipple, a 3 dimensional nipple can be created with light and shadow, to give the “illusion of protrusion”.
The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 requires insurance to cover post mastectomy reconstruction, including areola/nipple tattooing. Insurance will often reimburse some of the cost of procedures done by a tattoo artist.
Your procedure may qualify to be covered by your health insurance. Please note that although your procedure may be covered by insurance, we do not file insurance for you. We will give you a receipt to send to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement.
