Nipple tattooing is the final stage in the process of breast reconstruction, following mastectomy. This completes the process of recreating the most natural looking breasts.
During this procedure, permanent pigment is tattooed into the skin to create the natural colour of the nipple-areola. This offers a more realistic appearance following mastectomy surgery. The pigment is designed to be permanent, although some fading is expected over time and may require additional topping up. I have been trained in blending the right pigment colours, to achieve an areola colour which best matches the individual person and their skin tone. The pigments themselves are made from purified ingredients which meet FDC (food drug and cosmetic) standards in the USA and are hypoallergenic.
The treatment is performed with minimal discomfort and downtime and is offered to women 6 months after nipple creation surgery. I will discuss colouring, the process and answer any questions you may have. The procedure is performed in a private room and you are welcome to bring a friend or your partner for moral support. It takes from 1½ - 3 hours, depending on whether one or both sides are tattooed and you are able to go home immediately afterwards.
Follow up appointments are also a vital part of the process to assure the very best outcome possible, the retouch session needs to be completed within 6 months.
Please book a consultation so I can advise on skin suitability and cost depending on size of the area to be treated.
Camouflage medical tattooing can be used to disguise skin that has been discoloured due to surgery, skin grafts and extensive scarring. MCA (dry needling - see next page) is often advised prior to commencing camouflage tattooing as MCA can often trigger the scar to re-pigment naturally.
Please book a consultation and I can advise on skin suitability and cost depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Vitiligo can be easily disguised by the use of medical tattooing. A mixture of colours/pigments can be used to match your skin tone.
I am offering free nipple/areola tattooing twice a month to lovely ladies that have been through breast cancer. I am available for this service at both my Auckland and Hamilton clinics. If you or someone you knows would like this treatment please get in touch! Please note this treatment can only be performed 6 months post surgery.
Consultations are free and there is no obligation to book a treatment.
During the consultation I can take a look at your skin and advise on the best method of treatment. I will take a full medical history and check for any contra-indications. If a tattooing treatment is requested then I will patch test you with the pigments. Consultations can ether be done at the time of a procedure or they can be done at an earlier date.
Cosmetic & Medical Tattooing is not a spur of the moment procedure so it is essential to ensure you are a suitable candidate, feel comfortable that it is the right treatment for you, and that all aspects of the treatment and healing process have been fully explained by myself.
