Nipple-areola complex dermapigmentation

Nipple-areola complex dermapigmentation of the breast in cases of a necessity for correcting post-surgical scars, aesthetic improvement of the appearance of areolas, restoring their shape and symmetry, the camouflage of scars and stretch marks, and creating the visual three-dimensionality of skin.

Often the beauty of the breasts is not only in their shape or size. The appearance and condition of the nipple, the size, and color of the areola are visually important. Different deformations of the mammary gland and its individual parts – both congenital and acquired – become a real problem, which, fortunately, can now be solved without surgery. This non-surgical option is the dermapigmentation procedure of the nipple-areola complex, which is carried out by specialists at the AR Aesthetics Centre.

In an effort to support the global fight against breast cancer, the AR Aesthetics Centre provides a nipple-areola complex dermapigmentation procedure to women who have undergone various types of mastectomy and want to restore the aesthetics of their breasts free of charge. More detailed information upon the patient’s self-reference to the centre.

Don’t simply content yourself with how your breasts look like. We can give them the look you desire.

How to prepare for the procedure?

There is a number of recommendations before the procedure, which must be completed for its optimal implementation and quality result afterwards.

  • 10 days before the procedure, refrain from taking blood-thinning (aspirin, etc.) and vasoconstrictor drugs.
  • For two weeks before and after the procedure, antibiotics should not be taken, otherwise the body will reject the pigment.
  • 10 days before the procedure, refrain from sunbathing and indoor tanning (if you have a bright intense sunburn, you will only be able to schedule an appointment after your skin returns to its natural shade, which will allow the specialist to select the correct pigment tone).
  • Do not consume alcohol 24 hours before the procedure, as well as stimulating drinks (coffee, strong tea, caffeinated products, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, energy drinks), refrain from using skincare products, eyebrow growth serums, and do not consume heavy, spicy food. All these factors contribute to the thinning of blood, which can lead to lymph secretion, difficulties for the specialist and complications during healing.
  • Do not smoke 2 hours before the procedure.

In the second and third trimesters and the lactation period, the procedure may be conducted only with the permission of a doctor in the case that the client will easily tolerate the procedure (as in no pain-relieving medication will be needed).



The quality of the areola permanent makeup is 50% dependent on competent post procedural care with the help of recommended medications and hygiene rules.

After applying the areola makeup, hyperaemia and minor swelling may persist for 1-2 days, enhanced colour intensity in the affected area for 7-10 days, then the area becomes lighter and optimally close to the desired colour that was originally selected using the pigment.

  • After the procedure, the skin must be treated with special preparation
  • For 7-10 days, do not sunbathe and do not use makeup in the affected area.
  • Do not take long baths, steam baths, including the sauna and pool, for at least two weeks after the procedure.
  • More information is available in the “Pamphlet on aftercare for micropigmentation procedures”, which the client receives along with other documentation prior to the procedure.

To achieve the required quality and greater durability of the dermapigmentation, 1-2 additional correction procedures should be carried out with recommended intervals of 1-3 months. The procedure is considered incomplete without correction.
