Permanent makeup and paramedical tattooing

Post-mastectomy procedures


Today, more breast cancer patients are having a breast reconstruction following their mastectomy. Plastic surgery professionals are referring these patients to Manon to tattoo the areolas, camouflage the peripheral scars or to simulate and enhance the nipples. A variety of micropigmentation techniques are used to complete a breast reconstruction surgery, after which the breasts are sometimes left with no areola or nipple.

Areola/3D Nipple effect

When the breasts are left with no areola or nipple, new areolas can be designed and pigmented to achieve a 3-dimensional nipple appearance.

For these patients' breasts Manon has used a combination of pigments to create nipples that appear to stand out. The 3-D nipple effect procedure is normally completed in 2 visits and there is no down time.

This is the final touch to the nipple reconstruction surgery. The areolas are repigmented and shaped and in some cases, Manon can use as many as 5 colors to enhance the reconstructed areola-nipple complex to make it look as natural as possible.
