How Can Areola Repigmentation Help People Who Have Had Breast Surgery?
The areola plays a key role in the overall appearance of the breast. Since a woman’s self-image can depend on the appearance of her breasts, a missing areola can be psychologically devastating. After undergoing a mastectomy, a woman can regain her figure with a breast reconstruction. However, she may not feel complete without an areola. A scarred areola can effect the appearance of the breast as well. Areola tattooing provides the finishing touches after breast surgery. Clients feel the tattooing process helps them during the last part of their recovery to look and feel complete.
