What is areola reconstruction?

A lot of people ask me “what is areola reconstruction” and what is involved. The short answer is that the areola and nipple area of the breast can become discolored over time or following surgery, such as a mastectomy or breast augmentation. Areola reconstruction brings back the natural look for the areola/nipple area.

I found this article online that I thought was interesting. Here’s a highlight:

For many breast cancer survivors, the recovery process can be an uphill battle. After undergoing surgery and chemo, some women choose to have breast reconstruction surgery. That was the case for now licensed medical asthetician Susan Maruyama.”I had cancer in just one side but the chances of it coming even to the other side were high,” said Maruyama.Maruyama’s cancer experience lead to her passion. She decided to take the art of permanent tattooing one step further with Areola Restoration Tattoo.
