Areola Re-Pigmentation Procedures

Unfortunately, in today's western society, may women have succumbed
to breast cancer.  With advances in reconstructive medicine and cosmetic
tattooing, a woman's breast or breasts can look normal again despite
surviving cancer.  Unfortunately, many insurance companies do not pay
enough to have the work done by someone that approaches this delicate
re-coloring procedure, as an art versus a procedure and therefore many
women have inappropriate work performed.  I highly urge anyone that has
survived the breast cancer process to research areola re-pigmentations
prior to letting your doctor, his nurse or anyone else for that matter
re-pigment the area.  An inappropriate re-pigmentation can be very
difficult, costly and or impossible to correct.
