3-D Nipple Areola Tattooing

At Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery, we offer 3-D nipple areola tattooing for patients undergoing breast reconstruction surgery for cancer treatment as well as patients who have had nipple areola loss after other procedures.  This treatment gives the reconstructed breast a natural appearance to restore your self-confidence and body image to wholeness. 

What is 3-D Nipple Areola Tattooing?

Areola Tattooing

You can think of nipple areola tattooing as the finishing touch in breast reconstruction. It’s typically performed a few months after a breast reconstruction surgery to ensure that the breasts heal properly and that the patient is fully satisfied with the results of the procedure. 

3-D nipple-tattooing restores the appearance of a natural nipple and areola, which is the area of darker skin surrounding the nipple. Using a 3-D tattooing technique, it’s possible to make the nipple appear remarkably genuine.

Nipple-areola restoration provides a focal point of the breast mound that reduces the appearance of scar lines in the reconstructed breast.

Understanding 3-D Tattooing

3-D tattooing is different from regular tattooing because it utilizes shadows, highlighting, and dimensional shading. This creates the illusion of depth and texture. 

The 3-D Nipple-Areola Tattooing Process

During a 3-D nipple and areola tattooing, our experienced aesthetician  Paula will work with the patient to determine size, placement and color of the new areolas.

Then, she will insert pigment under the dermis to create a beautiful, natural-looking nipple-areola. The dermis is located just beneath the outermost layer of the skin (the epidermis). The pigment used in 3-D nipple-tattooing is permanent and a 4 week touch up is included in the pricing.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
