Medical Tattooing is a more formal term for nipple or areola tattooing, but it is one and the same treatment. I use bespoke medical pigments, that are designed to adapt to your natural skin tone. The pigments used are very different to traditional tattooing, as they soften and adapt to your skin tone, allowing for a much softer and more realistic result.
I am able to create an incredibly realistic looking 3D areola and nipple tattoo, using the latest advanced techniques and a state of the art medical micropigmentation machine. My treatments are carefully adapted for each individual client, to ensure the most natural and realistic result.
Is a nipple tattoo suitable for me?
I carry out nipple tattoo procedures for a number of reasons, not just for breast cancer patients. Below are some examples of why clients come to me for this treatment;
- Post breast cancer surgery, following either a major lumpectomy or single/double mastectomy.
- Post breast augmentation, where the areola and/or nipple has been moved or removed.
- Those with uneven areola's that wish to gain more symmetry.
- Post transgender surgery.
- Those that wish to darken or enhance their natural areola.
I often combine a nipple tattoo with micro needling scar reduction treatment. I have found that combining these two treatments enhances the overall results. Please get in contact with me if you have any scarring that you would like to improve.
Breast cancer patients
I am an approved Medical Tattooist for BUPA private medical insurers for a 3D areola and nipple tattoo for breast cancer patients. My fees are now covered in FULL for BUPA patients, as long as it is part of your policy cover.
If you are insured with other providers then please check with them regarding your cover. Most insurers will either cover your treatment or make a contribution towards it. For all insurers other than BUPA, you will need to pay for the treatment yourself and claim the cost back.
I offer a free 25 minute consultation, so please get in touch to book. This is a good opportunity for us to discuss your treatment plan and I can answer any questions you may have about the procedure. I do not publish medical pictures on social media. I have many photos I can share with you at consultations, where clients have provided written consent to share.
