Creating an Areola for Your New Breast
The final step in your breast reconstruction is this, restoring the natural color of your areola complex utilizing advanced tattoo techniques. While this occurs at the final stage, it is best to think about this step during your first surgical consultation. Some women prefer to leave their new breasts un-marked; others feel the addition of a pigmented areola and nipple is the "icing on the cake."
Tattooing restores the color to the areola and even helps camouflage scarring on the breast. The procedure is done in-office. It is important to check with your insurance provider, as not all will cover this final part of the procedure.
