Pre-Procedure Advice for Nipple & Areola Procedures

Medical Tattooing is a procedure that permanently alters the skin. It is performed for the treatment of medical or cosmetic enhancements. For many clients it provides an artistic finishing touch to complement reconstructive surgery. It can be used to match colours in nipple sharing, reconstruct the areola colouring, blend and camouflage scars, and with 3D shading create the illusion of nipple protrusion. It is the final stage in what has been a very long traumatic journey. A trained, competent and experienced medical tattoo artist will perform the procedure.

The Procedure

The procedure usually takes 30 – 60 minutes depending on individual requirements. Completion time varies according to:

  • The position, width and depth of the nipple – areola area.
  • The depth of colour to be matched
  • Acceptance of the pigment to the skin type
  • Scar tissue resistance
  • Application of topical anaesthetic

A consultation will be conducted and the shape and colour agreed by both patient and technician. You should only feel a slight vibrating scratching sensation during the procedure.

How long will it last?

Most patients require 2 treatments and possibly a further follow up treatment every 2-3 years to maintain the desired outcome. 100% success cannot always be guaranteed and the extent of the procedure depends on what changes are desired and the method the medical tattoo artist deems appropriate.

What factors may affect the results?

The result of the pigment implantation is partially determined by variations in the skin type and can be affected by:

  • Medication
  • Natural Skin Tones
  • Skin Characteristics (dryness, oily, sun damage, thickness, colour)
  • PH Balance of the skin (acidity)

Things to avoid before your treatment

  • Scars must be at least 12 months post injury/surgery
  • Please avoid sun exposure/sunbeds for at least 1 week before treatment.
  • Avoid bras with stitched seams across the Nipple/Areola as this acts as an exfoliant and can irritate during healing.
  • Avoid taking Asprin 24 hrs before the treatment
