N.A.C. - Nipple Areola Complex Tattooing and Breast Reduction Scars
Post reconstructive breast surgery - cosmetic or post mastectomy
Breast reconstruction is a popular form of cosmetic surgery in today's society. Not only for beauty requirements, but for medical purposes also. Such a procedure however, can leave an areola/nipple missing or at least damaged in some way. Over a series of sessions , our Nipple Areola Complex (NAC) Tattooing can add layers of colour and redefine a shape . If the area is Bi-Lateral we will take into account skin tone to provide you with the most natural colour possible. For a Uni-lateral patient we will simply chose the closest colour match. For Medical patients we can also provide a 3-D nipple if it is missing or lacking. This gives the illusion of protrusion.
Breast reconstruction can also leave scars. For example in a reduction an inverted ‘T’ shaped (or ‘anchor’) scar. Although they will fade over time, micro pigmentation can help disguise or speed up this process. Two different techniques can be used: MCA (a dry needling technique) or by camouflage colour being introduced into the area.
Some clients request nipple colouration to create either a stronger areola or to enlarge or reshape their areola/s for cosmetic purposes. We can help with darkening or resizing.
*NB – The initial 3D Nipple Post Mastectomy treatment takes an hour. Each retouch session takes anything between 30 minutes and an hour. Areola post augmentation
