The Center for Permanent Cosmetics provides areola repigmentation for breast cancer survivors. After a mastectomy, women frequently have either breast preservation or breast reconstruction. Breast reconstruction alleviates the deformity of the breast and constructs breasts that meet the patients expectations aesthetically and psychologically. Nipple/areola repigmentation enhances the hue and provides a natural appearance for the breast that has undergone reconstruction. The appearance of natural looking nipples and areola is achieved by skillfully blending pigments to enhance or recreate your skin's natural colors.
