The Rundown on Areola Reconstruction Tattooing

Aug 16th 2018

Areola reconstruction tattooing is one of the final steps in overall breast reconstruction following a number of surgeries. Trained professionals are able to recreate the correct coloring and shape of the areola to provide the final touch on breast reconstruction.

Post-surgery areola reconstruction.

A variety of breast augmentation procedures may result in a patient needing or wanting areola reconstruction. These include Mastectomy, Bilateral Mastectomy, Augmentation Mammoplasty, Reduction Mammoplasty, Breast Lift or Mastopexy, and Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia). For example, in the case of a mastectomy, areola tattooing will be the final stage in a series of reconstructive processes. For certain mammoplasties, however, areola reconstruction may be the only post-operative service needed by the patient.

From licensed professionals.

It’s important when seeking out areola reconstructive services to find a licensed professional with experience. Therefore, that’s why at Permanent Choices we offer certified classes on areola reconstruction. These classes include:
