Paramedical or Medical Restorative Areola Tattooing is the process of placing pigments into the skin to achieve the look of a three dimensional, realist Areola and/or Nipple after mastectomy or certain breast augmentation. It can also be used to enhance a natural nipple for aesthetic purpose.

Paramedic Areola Tattooing techniques can “create” an areola after breast reconstruction, minimize the appearance of scars, or restore an areola to a more natural looking color and shape. These procedures can greatly restore the self esteem and confidence of breast cancer survivors or others who are simply self conscious about their areolas or nipples.

  • Areola - Nipple Complex Simulation: This procedure is for patients who have had breast reconstruction after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Cosmetic tattooing techniques and color pigments are used to create the appearance of an areola. For a unilateral mastectomy patient, this process helps the reconstructed breast to match the natural breast. For patients with bilateral breast reconstruction, both areolas are recreated. Areola complex simulation can be achieved with or without a nipple button created by the surgeon.

  • Areola Scar Camouflage: Many breast operations require one or more incisions at or around the edge of the areola which may produce scarring. The most common peri-areolar scars are from breast augmentation or reduction surgeries. A scar’s appearance can be softened, blended, or reduced by tattooing the areola scar using corrective pigment camouflage techniques.

  • Areola Size or Color Adjustment: The color of an areola can be darkened, balanced, or enhanced with tattooing. The process helps women who have discolored or lightened areolas after breastfeeding or patients who have had areola graft surgery. Patients with skin discoloration disorders (e.g. Vitiligo) can also benefit from areola tattooing. Also, individuals who have not had breast surgery but are self-conscious about their areola color or size (too light or too small) may choose this procedure to adjust their appearance.

At Divine Proportion Cosmetic Tattooing Laura will determine the right shades & tones to match each individual’s natural skin tones. Once the procedure is completed and the coming weeks, the color will lighten and soften as skin heals over the pigmented area. 

We understand the sensitivity of these procedures and we will be with you every step of the way from consultation through the healing process. Discreet Appointments Available! 

*Under the Woman's Health and Cancer Rights Act, Areola and Nipple Complex Paramedical Tattooing is a federally mandated covered procedure used to restore the natural appearance of the nipple and areola following breast reconstruction surgery and is a pertinent portion of the breast reconstruction process for breast cancer survivors.

Occasionally people experience an event in their life that results in a change to a feature in their appearance and they have a desire to improve this aesthetically. Paramedical aka Medical Restorative Tattooing, which is a advanced form of cosmetic tattooing, is an option that can facilitate a desired change or restoration of appearance. It works hand-in-hand with the plastic reconstructive industry. Firmly established as being part of the medical aesthetics genre, medical tattooing offers a range of treatments for people who have experienced medical conditions including but not limited to:


  • RESTORATION OF THE APPEARANCE OF HAIR LOSS DUE TO ALOPECIA (includes restoration of eyebrows, eyelash definition, simulation of scalp hair)

  • THE DIMINISHMENT OF THE APPEARANCE OF SCAR TISSUE due to skin trauma, including burns and sun damage

  • ENHANCEMENT OF LIP SYMMETRY due to a cleft lip

  • VITILIGO COLOR RESTORATION (typically very minor areas and most successfully performed on lips)


Treatments are carried out using a rotary, digital or computerized tattoo machine by a professionally licensed cosmetic tattoo artist who has been trained and certified by a reputable trainer/company that specialize in the field of paramedical cosmetic tattooing.


A consultation is always done prior to any treatment to determine client expectations, to ensure that there were no further surgeries scheduled, that the client is healthy enough for the treatment and that there were no other medical contraindications.
