Nipple tattooing is a great option if you are considering breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. 3D nipple tattooing is what we offer. Dr. Gelana will help guide you through your options before you make the right decision.
The average time it takes to get a nipple tattoo is three to four months after your reconstructive surgery. This begins with a consultation between your artist and you. You’ll discuss important details such as the shape, color, and placement of your new nibble(s).
Then, you’ll be able to discuss what to expect regarding pain management and sign any allergy or medical consent forms. You will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Gelana any questions you may have about the procedure so that you feel as secure and comfortable as possible.
A rotary tattoo machine is used to do nipple tattoos. This takes approximately 90 minutes. This machine is lighter and quieter than traditional tattoo machines, making it easier to use and more comfortable to use in areas with delicate skin.
This procedure is very similar to a traditional tattoo. A needle penetrates the skin’s outer layers at about 1mm depth. This creates permanent images by depositing ink. It is much faster than full nipple reconstruction.
Aftercare instructions will be provided to ensure your results last as long as possible. You will be given the appropriate topical creams, ointments, and detailed instructions on how to maintain your amazing result. Many patients feel that nipple tats really bring out the best in their breast reconstruction and allow them to move on with their lives.
