The last step after a breast buildup – recommended by Professor dr. Yves Harder from the Italian Hospital in Lugano, Switzerland.
How does micropigmentation work?
After the small skin scars on the nipple have faded and completely healed, the areola is naturally colored by micropigmentation on an outpatient basis and in superficial anesthesia (cream).
This process is painless. Fitting to the opposite side, first the shape of the areola is painted on the skin. The appropriate shade is then selected from a wide range of pigments. With special instruments and sterile disposable needles, the uppermost skin layer is scratched and the pigment is introduced at the same time. Since part of the pigment is shed off the skin again, at least two pigmentation sessions are necessary, sometimes several.
Is such a micropigmentation associated with risks?
During pigmentation, the skin is scratched only superficially. In rare cases, this can lead to rebleeding, wound healing disorders or infections. Also possible are deviations in shape and color between the nipples.
What happens after pigmentation?
Following the pigmentation session, the skin looks like a superficial abrasion with no crust. After 2 to 3 weeks, the color and shape of the pigmented areola can be checked, followed by treatment. Once the pigmentation is complete, a lasting result remains. In some cases, the pigmentation fades after five to ten years, then can be pigmented again.
The costs of treatment are often covered by the health insurance.
