About 6-12 weeks after breast cancer surgery or breast implants/reduction, an areola restoration can be done in a way that creates a 3-dimensional look using permanent makeup. This is a great option for those who do not wish to undergo skin grafting and more surgery.
To improve the appearance of post-surgical scarring around the circumference of the areola, custom-matched pigments are infused through the areola outward into the scar tissue to camouflage the scars in a natural-looking way. The waiting period for scars to be camouflaged is a 6-12 month period. Only flat, light-coloured scars can be successfully treated.
The Areola Restoration Procedure is an advanced permanent makeup procedure to correct the color, size and shape of the nipple. Such procedures often result in imperfections in the areola or a complete removal of the nipple.
This procedure gives women, and men, the choice of shape, size and color of the areola and recreates perfectly symmetrical and naturally colored nipples. This procedure is also beneficial to clients who simply have irregular or fading areolas, or prefer larger areolas following breast augmentation. This procedure is also available to men who wish to enhance the appearance of their areolas due to fading, or to increase their size.
