What is Areola Restoration?
Areola Restoration is a specialized type of paramedical tattooing. It is also known as Areola Repigmentation, Areola Reconstruction, Areola Cosmetic Tattooing and Areola Micropigmentation. This procedure requires specialized training and tools as well as patience and experience. The procedure is often used following mastectomy surgery to restore the breast to a pre-surgical appearance. It is often instrumental in achieving a positive outcome for the patient and improved self-esteem. It is used on both women and men who have undergone breast surgery. Areola Restoration techniques can reproduce an areola after breast reconstruction, minimize scars and restore a more natural shape and color.
