Breast cancer patients are choosing to undergo areola/nipple restoration after a mastectomy in order to re-pigment and camouflage the skin to create a natural looking breast. As one of the premier areola/nipple specialists in Sarasota Florida, Mary McAndrews offers complimentary consultations to all patients to thoroughly discuss this tattooing procedure. During the consultation, Mary will paint on the skin to give an idea of size, color, and shape and create the illusion of depth by highlighting and shadowing . For scar camouflaging, Mary will match your skin tone with flesh colored pigments to hide the scar. The areola/nipple restoration procedure will take approximately 2 to 3 sessions scheduled no more than 8 weeks apart. We are very aware that breasts are unique to each individual and we take special time and care to produce the most realistic and natural results. The procedure is done using hospital grade, state-of-the-art equipment in a sterile, serene, confidential setting. They are also pain free.
