What is it?
3d Areola/Nipple Complex Reconstruction is a medical tattooing procedure designed to recreate the visual effect of the areola/nipple complex. With this technique we can re-create the entire areola/nipple complex, minimize the appearance of scars, or restore the areola colour and shape. Most surgical procedures leave their mark whether it be a full reconstruction, reduction, lift or augmentation. We utilize the golden ratio to create the perfect balance and symmetry for each individuals size and shape.
How long does it last?
This procedure is permanent, colour adjustments may be required and are subject to the hourly rate.
What to expect?
Shape, size, and placement will be discussed and measured first and foremost. A colour patch test may be required if matching any existing areola tissue. Colour will be discussed regardless and custom blended for every individual.
This procedure will only be considered if there has been a minimum of 1 year healing post surgery. Or there is written clearance from your Surgeon or Oncologist.
Preparing for your appointment
Wear very loose clothing.
No alcohol consumption 24 hours prior to your appointment.
No over the counter blood thinners 24 hours prior to your appointment (ex, ibuprofen, ASA).
After your procedure
You may experience some discomfort once the topical anaesthetic wears off. Similar to the sensation of scraping your knee. The area will be bandaged and it is recommended to leave the bandaging on for a minimum of 6 hours up to 24 hours. Gentle washing and leaving the area to air dry is best. So plan for some time at home to allow for proper healing. More detailed instructions will be provided during consultation.
