Repigmentation / Tattooing



When Nipple Sparing Mastectomy is not an option or when the nipple was removed by previous mastectomy, the team at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery can recreate the nipple surgically.  When the reconstructed nipple is enhanced with the artistry and visual depth that a dimensional tattoo provides, the result is a beautiful finish to a well formed breast reconstruction.
