Areola Tattoo

Areola restoration

For clients who have experienced breast cancer and mastectomy, our expert technicians can combine artistic know-how and cutting-edge technique to create the illusion of a 3D nipple and areola - helping you feel like yourself again.

We can also help with treatments following breast reduction or uplift surgery, pre and post gender reassignment surgery, or gynecomastia surgery.

Areola reconstruction and repair through medical tattooing is a well-researched and highly-specialised service. We’ve developed our treatments over many years and as a result they are all safe, effective and entirely tailored to your unique situation.

Breast reconstruction after mastectomy

Combining creative expertise and state-of-the-art techniques, our skilled technicians can help you reclaim your confidence, by creating the appearance of a natural looking areola and nipple complex, to complete your breast reconstruction.

After breast reduction or uplift surgery

Experience has taught us that scarring is your greatest concern following breast surgery - so we’ve developed specific techniques for minimising the appearance of breast scars. And we’re able to improve areolae irregularities, restoring them to a natural shape and symmetry.

Enlargement and defining of the areolae

For men and women whose areolae are too pale, without definition, too small or asymmetrical, our treatments can help you achieve a balanced shape, enhanced colour and incredibly natural definition.

Pre and post gender reassignment surgery

An ideal treatment for gender reassignment, helping either to feminise the areolae or creating a new areola and nipple complex. It helps give you the look you were born to have.

Following gynecomastia surgery

This condition is more common than you’d think. After surgery, we can help camouflage scarring and repair your areolae, so restoring your confidence.

Understand your treatment plan

How long will it take?

Areola tattooing typically takes 3 sessions and your appointments may take up to 2.5 hours. Camouflaging of breast scars generally takes 2-4 sessions and about an hour to treat.

What happens during the consultation?

We’ll chat through exactly what you’d like the end result to be. This will include looking at your areola shape, size, placement and colourings. Then your technician will ‘pre-draw’ the areola and nipple complex using temporary markers and perfectly match the pigment shades to your skin. This is to make sure the correct style and colours are chosen and the finished result is as natural as possible.

What will happen during treatment?

Your expert technician will skilfully infuse the colour into your skin while carefully tracing over the pre-drawn template that you’ve chosen.

Will it hurt?

We want you to be completely comfortable during the treatment. If you still have sensation following your surgery, we’ll make sure numbing agents are applied and continually check how you’re feeling. Our clients usually describe the discomfort as no more than 3 out of 10.

What kind of training does the technician have to have?

All our technicians are fully accredited and have been through our training course, which is recognised by special treatments licensing as well as HABIA and ITEC.

Will I be able to go back to work straight afterwards?

Absolutely. Typically the area around your treatment may be slightly red for 36 hours and we apply a sterile dressing, which you wear under your clothes for up to 5 days.

Do you provide aftercare? 

Yes - for all our areola treatments complimentary tune-up and aftercare products are included. For camouflaging breast scars we charge as individual sessions.
