A number of surgical procedures on a woman’s breast can commonly create what is called a peri-aerolara scar. This happens if the surgeon performing the operation has to make an incision at or around the edge of the areola. In other circumstances, some breast surgeries can also leave a patient with a vertical scar which shows from her nipple down through the lower portion of her breast. These are often reasons for women to consider having permanent makeup camouflage in the hopes of minimizing their visual effect.

Areola Re-Pigmentation and Your Nipples: A Most Sensitive Area

This shouldn’t come as a newsflash to you. The areas of your nipples are highly sensitive parts of your body. Thus, they are two of the primary spots of sexual stimulation and sexual pleasure.

However, the breasts are also usually an emotionally sensitive and sacred area on the female body which helps you to “feel like a woman.” This easily explains why the specialty niche of cosmetic tattooing is so important if you are one of those who has undergone various forms of breast surgery.

The areola is a circular area of skin around the nipple. It usually appears to be thicker and darker than the surrounding area. The areola takes center stage in the aesthetic look of a woman’s breast.

In many cases, a large part of a woman’s self-image can depend on the appearance of her breasts. Covering them up with bras and clothing does nothing to hide the emotional and psychological damage a missing or scarred areola can cause. If this has you feeling less of a woman, you wouldn’t be alone. Thank goodness, there is something you can do about it.

Following taxing treatment of a mastectomy to survive and overcome breast cancer, a female patient often has to manage her way back to feeling like a complete woman again. In the best cases, she can regain her figure through the benefits of a breast reconstruction surgery. However, it’s likely she may still not feel right without an areola or being left with a scarred areola.

Post-Surgical Areola Tattooing by Sally Hayes

Scar Camouflage: Many breast surgeries today involve the patient having scars from one or more incisions at or around the edge of the areola. Using the proper corrective pigment camouflage, the appearance of these areola scars can be blended with your natural tones, softened, or reduced by cosmetic tattooing.

Altering Areola Color or Size: The color of your areola can be carefully blended, balanced, or enhanced with cosmetic camouflage tattooing. This process not only helps women who have had surgery, but also those who are simply unhappy with the size or color of their areolas. Other common candidates are women who have developed discolored areolas after breastfeeding, and patients with Vitiligo.

Nipple-Areola Complex Simulation: These procedures use proper pigments and cosmetic tattooing to create the appearance of areolas. And they don’t require your surgeon to create a nipple button. Prime candidates for this procedure include patients who have already had breast reconstruction following a lumpectomy or mastectomy surgery.

Cosmetic camouflage techniques with areolas are centered around creating an illusion. Your skin has more than 100 different colors. So, your success depends on the quality of a precise, custom blend of pigments which requires multiple applications. If the color is off, your eye will be drawn to it. This is a challenging process time which can be time consuming and costly expensive and challenging because you won’t be happy unless you get the color right.
When done properly by Expert Permanent Makeup Artist Sally Hayes, these procedures help to improve not only the appearance of your breasts, but your all-important self-esteem as well. Restoring the nipple area or areola tattooing techniques can “create” the illusion of an areola after breast surgery or reconstruction. They can also minimize the appearance of scars. Areola restoration in permanent makeup can help to restore an areola to a far more natural looking shape and color.
