Breast Nipple Tattooing


Nipple tattooing is done through specialists that are not generally physicians. The people we refer you to after reconstruction are generally medically trained tattoo artists that specialize in helping patients with scarring, and tattooing. Particularly in the region of nipple.

Once a nipple is reconstructed with local flaps after a mastectomy there is no pigment. The tattooing gives the option to have a pigment that will either match the other nipple or match the skin as you wish it to be colored. Creating a contrast between the skin of your breast and the nipple area. The tattooing usually takes anywhere from 2 to 3 sessions.

Women are often concerned that this will not be covered by insurance. Ultimately, the procedure is usually covered by insurance, but it will take some considerable time to do so. It is best to plan well ahead of time and consult with a tattoo artist to be sent to your insurance for approval. Often this takes anywhere from a couple weeks to a month to achieve, and generally is not very costly. Many patients leave very happy with the results of the tattoo.

Dr J and his staff look forward to understanding the details of your unique case, desires and aspirations, and to providing you with realistic, safe and attainable results that leave you looking beautiful, and truly feeling like yourself.

  • review rating 5  Dr. Jacobsen is a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon. He removed a malignant melanoma from the left side of my face. He was thorough and precise. I am now cancer free. The result is outstanding. Dr. Jacobsen and his staff are outstanding when it come to communication! I left a voice mail at his office on a Saturday morning and Dr. Jacobsen called me back himself within 15 minutes! He requested me to immediately email photos and the lab report. I did so and again heard back from him within 15 minutes! His web site has links to contact the office directly. This type contact is promptly answered. I highly recommend Dr. Jacobsen.
