Medical tattoo is a non-surgical solution that can make post-surgery patients and trauma survivors feel whole again. The process of medical tattoo micropigmentation has been used and endorsed for years by plastic and cosmetic surgeons, oncologists and dermatologists.

Medical tattoo micro-pigmentation is a non-surgical procedure augmenting breast reconstruction by creating the illusion of a natural, three-dimensional areola and nipple. For women who have undergone mastectomies or may have irregular or fading areola's, this complex intra-dermal pigmentation and 3D nipple restoration, helps women to recover physically and emotionally from the scars of breast cancer. 

Depending upon unilateral or bilateral mastectomy, some women will only require one breast to be matched to natural areola and nipple. Some will require both breast to be treated.


In addition to 3D nipple & areola tattoo use of injectable dermal filler to restore the 3-dimensional contour of the nipple due to loss of nipple projection after reconstruction or nipple sparing surgery can also be performed. This is a simple & non-invasive procedure with immediate and adjustable volume results that positively impact patient satisfaction and well being.


Some private insurance providers do consider 3D Nipple and Areola tattoo as part of the breast reconstruction. These providers will sometimes cover all or a portion of the procedure. Our billing department will collect your insurance information from you. At that time allow 5-7 working days for the billing department to verify pre-certification and coverage.

Medical tattoos help to camouflage scars, burns, birthmarks and other skin imperfections resulting from surgeries and injuries.

Micro-pigmentation can also be used to break up scar tissue and restore skin color for a more natural appearance. Permanent

cosmetics can disguise scars and discolorations from cleft palate, birthmarks, bon-pigmented age spots and cosmetic surgeries

including face lifts and tummy tucks. I have even camouflaged a laser tattoo removal that left the area without any melanin in the skin.
