Procedure Details

After she conquered her journey with breast cancer, this patient went to Dr. Mountcastle for a bilateral revision of a previous breast reconstruction, which is common with post-cancer patients. After he corrected her breasts, the next step in finalizing the end of her cancer journey was to recreate her areolas. CRN Amy Herrmann gave the finishing touch out of the Mountcastle Medical Spa, where she performed 3D nipple tattooing on the breast. By mixing together different colors to match her pigment, 2 sessions later our patient had realistic nipples, created by artistic depth and color contrasting. This procedure can also be called Areola Repigmentation, Areola Tattooing, Areola Recoloring, Areola Restoration, and Areola Simulation which can be done on any patient who receive scars from a breast surgery, including Gynecomastia.

Areola Repigmentation

Tattooing done by our talented nurse in our Ashburn office gives our patients who have fought for so long a chance to turn the page to a new chapter of their lives post-cancer. After tattooing, the color can fade over time which may require a touch-up in the future, similar to body tattooing maintenance. Many breast cancer survivors who receive this procedure do not experience much feeling during the tattooing, but it can vary patient to patient. The benefits of this tattooing process are remarkable by giving patients the opportunity to restore their color and shape with reinvented definition.
