3D Areola Tattoo

What is 3D Areola Restoration?

Realistic, 3D medical tattoos that restore your natural beauty and help you reclaim your confidence.

Although this service is most commonly used by individuals who have experienced breast cancer, it can be helpful for a variety of other reasons as well. This non-surgical procedure creates the illusion of a natural, three-dimensional areola and nipple to augment breast reconstruction. Alternatively, it is known as 3D nipples and nipple/areola restoration/reconstruction. For women and men who have undergone breast surgery, mastectomy, or top surgery this service can be the final step in their brave and emotional journey. In addition to restoring your nipples and breasts to their natural beauty, this procedure can also give you a more positive outlook on yourself and your body.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?

3D Areola Tattooing (Nipple Tattooing, Areola restoration etc.) is a 3D tattoo procedure that replicates the areola and nipple. This technique is for anyone who may have had total loss, irregularity or inconsistency in their areola and nipples after any type of breast reconstructive surgery.

How long is each visit?

Each visit is about 1 to 1.5 hours. Client will choose their new areola nipple replacement, size, shape, and color to provide a realistic outcome before beginning the service.

When should a client schedule tattooing?

The client should always consult with their doctor first. This process is usually done at a minimum of 3-4 months after the final in-hospital surgery. This is normally when the skin has healed enough from any reconstruction surgery.

Does it hurt?

It’s common for breast numbness to linger after a mastectomy due to the cutting of nerve endings. Although topical anesthetics are available, most clients have no to little sensation during the procedure. After drawing the outline of the areola and nipple the tattoo process begins. You may feel a vibrating sensation while needles transfer pigment into your skin.

How long does it last?

Your new areola / nipple tattoos is created for our clients to last a lifetime, with very few refreshing sessions.

What is the process for this procedure?

When you come into the studio, it doesn’t matter if you have old work that needs a color boost, color correction or you are a fresh canvas ready for color. I will always use more than one color and layer different colors to create a realistic 3D effect.

What to expect from your 3D areola tattoo treatment

This is a very personal procedure, so I work with you every step of the way to ensure a positive experience and a beautiful outcome.

It all starts with a consultation where I get to know you and discuss your treatment options. I’ll assess the condition of your breasts, including scarring, skin texture, and other elements that are important to factor into your tattoo.

Together, we’ll create a design for the areola based on the size, placement, and coloring that will work best with your body and your desired outcome. The actual tattooing can usually be accomplished in one session that ranges anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours.

What happens after your treatment?

The most important part of the experience comes after the tattooing is complete.

Many experience a renewed sense of confidence, lose their fear of looking in the mirror, and feel like themselves again. They’re able to move forward from the stress of their illness and recovery and start a new, happier chapter of their lives.
