I provide the "finishing touch" for local women who have had their reconstruction done by on of our Asheville / Hendersonville area
I provide this service free of charge as my way of giving back to my community and in honor of my mother who passed from Lymphoma when I was just 17 years old.
Your areola pigmentation appointment procedure time should be close to an hour, sometimes less depending on your specific needs.
I will provide you with aftercare instructions and explain the healing process in detail at the time of your appointment.
I will help guide you as to when the best time to have this procedure done... but it is always best to follow your doctors recommendations... although you MUST wait a minimum of 90 days since your nipple construction to have tattooing done. Be sure you have no open areas in your scar tissue or excessive redness.
Please let all skin heal well from surgical procedures for best results.
You cannot be in swimming pool, lake or ocean water for 10 day post procedure and should refrain from excessive exercise such as running or hot yoga during this 10 day healing time as well, so plan accordingly with your schedule.
If you are not referred by a local Asheville Plastic Surgeon I am sharing this link to a wonderful artist in Raleigh NC.
Tara specializes in 3-D areola tattooing and is a breast cancer survivor herself. I am certain she can help you finish your reconstruction in a pleasant and safe environment!
