Micropigmentation of the Nipple

Reconstructive breast surgery is routinely offered to patients undergoing surgery for breast cancer. While results can be excellent, if nipple-sparing techniques fail, a patient can feel incomplete without a nipple-aerola complex. In response to patient need, innovative micro-pigmentation service—or tattooing—has been developed, which provides women (and men) an opportunity to complete their reconstruction process. With the use of coloured pigments, micro-pigmentation creates a permanent image of a nipple-areola complex, which improves the aesthetic appearance of the surgically-created breast.
