a doctor using a black marker to draw on a patient’s chestIt’s highly likely that you know someone who has or is currently battling breast cancer. This horrible disease causes emotional and physical scars that can leave an individual feeling less confident in their appearance. From hair loss due to chemotherapy to losing one’s breast as a result of a mastectomy, no one can understand the impact this can have until they’ve experienced it themselves. Fortunately, there is a solution that is empowering individuals by giving them back their confidence. Find out how a 3D areola tattoo is making it possible for breast cancer survivors to move forward after a mastectomy.

What is 3D Areola and Nipple Tattooing?

Performed by a skilled tattoo specialist, 3D areola and nipple tattooing is a revolutionary service offered to individuals who want to improve the appearance of their breasts after having surgery. Some of the following are reasons why someone would have a 3D nipple tattoo:

  • Breast Reduction
  • Mastectomy Surgery

Not only does it create the illusion that you have a lifelike areola and nipple, but it also:

  • Creates proportional breasts
  • Minimizes scar appearance
  • Restores color and shape to fading areolas or nipples

How Can it Benefit Breast Cancer Survivors?

It’s not necessarily just cancer that can be traumatic but having a mastectomy to remove the breast(s) can be equally as impactful. To combat this feeling of decreased confidence, a mastectomy nipple tattoo can empower and encourage both men and women to embrace a new way of living, feeling confident about their health and appearance.

There are many benefits to having 3D areola and nipple tattooing, including:

  • Minimal pain experienced
  • Increased confidence
  • Professional application by a skilled tattoo specialist
  • No recovery time or downtime required
  • Reduces the appearance of scarring from a breast reduction

How Is It Different Than Traditional Nipple Reconstruction?

More and more breast cancer survivors are choosing the tattooing option over nipple reconstruction for a variety of reason. With the latter, patients can experience:

  • Extensive healing
  • Increased risk of infection
  • Protruding nipples that can be seen through all types of clothing

For someone who has battled and won the fight against breast cancer, that is an accomplishment in itself that should make anyone feel proud and confident in their ability to push through even the hardest times. But by offering services such as 3D areola and nipple tattooing, it gives these survivors a boost in confidence that wasn’t there before.
