With permanent cosmetics, it is possible to carry out a “total optical re-construction” of the nipple and the areola, in some cases where a mastectomy and subsequent implant has been performed. The correction of scars as a result of surgery for breast enlargement/reduction can be camouflaged with this treatment.
Pigmentation of grafted areolas following breast reconstruction makes them look more natural. Where no nipple is present, delicate shading is used to create the effect of a 3-dimensional nipple.
Not all problems result from surgery. Some people are born with small, pale or badly-defined areolas. Permanent cosmetics can be used to correct these problems.
