The areola is part of the human breast and plays a key role in the aesthetic look of a breast. Since a woman’s self-image can depend on the appearance of her breasts, a missing areola can be psychologically devastating. A woman can survive breast cancer after undergoing a mastectomy, and she can regain her figure with breast reconstruction. However, she may not feel “complete” without an areola. A woman can become emotionally distressed from a scarred areola as well. Patients feel the breast cancer tattooing process helps them during the last part of their recovery to look complete and feel “whole” and “normal” again.
In this podcast episode, we will be speaking with Aleisha Gannon of Pink Lotus Breast Restoration.
Aleisha has been an artistic tattoo artist for 19 years. The last several years she has been offering realistic nipple/areola tattooing for women and men post-mastectomy following breast cancer and post top surgery. Aleisha has also launched Australia’s first 3D temporary nipple tattoos to help women on their breast cancer journey to feel whole again. Post-surgery, the skin may be too weak after treatment for tattooing or nipple reconstruction, so this is an affordable, pain-free & non-invasive way to replace what has been taken.
Aleisha will share how her journey into tattooing inspired the creation of temporary nipple tattoos.
