Patients find that bringing back the look of their natural breast delivers a much-deserved sense of normalcy.

How It Works

During your consultation with our permanent makeup artist, we’ll talk through the details of the areola tattooing process and realistic expectations for results. The artist will examine your reconstructed breast, including (if present) the existing breast.

Through specific shading, skin color analysis and matching, and the flexibility to also add color to an existing nipple, you’ll achieve the finishing touch to your breast reconstruction that looks natural and complete.

Treatment Planning Tool

What to Expect

Our permanent makeup artist will learn more about your medical history during your consultation. We’ll discuss your goals, visually examine your breasts, and create a custom color palette and approach based on your unique needs.

Tattooing takes 15 minutes to an hour, depending on whether both breasts will be treated, and the amount of scar remediation desired. We’ll make sure your experience is as comfortable as possible.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

These instructions will help you achieve the best results with your 3D areola tattooing treatment.

Hydrate Well

Drinking plenty of water will help your skin remain hydrated. This allows the ink to absorb more easily.

Avoid Alcohol

Alcohol thins blood, which can also cause the ink to thin. This can fade the expected color of the areola tattoo.

Be Patient

Reconstruction scars should no longer be red. Tattooing over active healing can damage the skin’s cellular structure.

Post-Treatment Instructions

Here is how you can get the most out of your 3D areola tattooing in Fort Collins.

Wear Cotton

After the first day, switch to wearing a cotton t-shirt as a breathable bandage. Wear the non-stick pad whenever you wear a bra.

No Swimming

Stay away from swimming pools, bathtubs, and hot tubs until the area is fully healed. Showers are perfectly fine.

Don't Scratch

You’ll experience some itching and flaking, which is normal. To avoid any complications, do not scratch the area.
