Topic | Dermapigmentation: Areola Restoration for women after breast cancer
Many women must undergo mastectomy, which can require not only the removal of breast tissue, but nipple tissue as well. Often, breast cancer survivors are left with no areolas and areas of scarring in places where the surgery was performed. This often leads to some disfigurement that can be difficult to deal with. Many breast cancer survivors do not realize the options that they have, assuming their only solution is additional surgery for areola reconstruction. Plus, following mastectomy and breast reconstruction, often women do not want to deal with any more surgeries, or are not good candidates for grafts.
But today, mastectomy patients actually have non-surgical options for nipple reconstruction! With derma pigmentation the most natural look for areola reconstruction can be created, whether matching to remaining tissue or creating areolas bilaterally across the chest wall. Using pigment colors that mimic nature and which complement the remaining tissue and the overall color palette of the client. With over 20 years of experience in dermapigmentation, Yvette Zacharowitz has developed her unique optical illusion techniques to create a realistic areola and nipple. She is well known in medical and aesthetic circles for her medical camouflage and reconstructive procedures and continually consults with leading surgeons around the world to improve and refine this life changing procedure.
