Male Breast Beauty is Possible with Medical Tattooing

There’s lots of promotional material out there about “saving the ta-tas” these days. But women aren’t the only ones that suffer from breast-related issues. Men get tumors and breast cancer too, as well as gynecomastia, the accumulation of excessive breast tissue resulting in a resemblance to female breasts. Unfortunately, the surgery necessary to treat these conditions can leave scars – both physical and emotional.

Men want beautiful breasts too!
Breast surgery involving reductions and mastectomy can result in areola removal, scarring, areola or breast depression, and changes in size, shape, or proportion. These changes in appearance can effect men psychologically just as they do women, resulting in self-consciousness, body image issues, shame, and embarrassment. It also often prevents them from experiencing life’s activities – from swimming to sex. Luckily, there is help.

Medical tattooing offers stunning results.
Medical tattooing solutions for men can greatly improve appearance and self-confidence, making a real difference in how you live your life. In conjunction with plastic surgery, permanent makeup experts can create a more symmetrical, attractive chest appearance, utilizing:

  • Scar camouflage
    Micropigmentation can reduce the appearance of scarring by softening, blending, or reducing scars with the help of corrective pigment camouflage techniques. These techniques not only offer great color-matching with your natural skin tone, but help break-up scar tissue as well.
  • Areola restoration
    Our areola and nipple restoration techniques are widely known for their 3-D effects and “the illusion of protrusion,” offering our clients artistry unparalleled in the field of medical tattooing.

Scar Camouflage Five Things to Know Before Making Your Appointment

Having permanent makeup applied is a technique both men and women take advantage of for several reasons. Some use it strictly for cosmetic reasons such as permanent tattooing of eyebrows and lips, beards and bald spots, or to add permanent eyeliner. Others use the technique to address medical related issues such as alopecia, areola restoration after breast surgery, and to camouflage scars.

If you are considering having unsightly scars left by a surgical procedure, an injury, burns, or a natural occurrence such as acne addressed, there are several things you need to know before scheduling an appointment.

  • Choose only a paramedical tattoo professional with certification from the American Academy of Micropigmentation Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals to do the work.
  • Select a certified professional with the proper training and experience especially if your skin has been subjected to radiation or laser treatments or burns. Skin affected by these issues are handled with special techniques not necessary for unaffected or normal skin.
  • Use the services of a professional who has significant experience working with the procedure you require.
  • The technician should have an easily accessible portfolio outlining their experience with pictures before and after the procedure.
  • Listen carefully to what the technician has to say about the procedure. Realistic results about what you should and shouldn’t expect should be clearly explained before having the procedure implemented.

3-D Tattoos Create the Illusion of Protrusion

In the carefree, bra-burning 1960s, many young women taped Band-Aids over their nipples. Going braless was a bold strike for feminism but showing your nipples was, surprising, considered inappropriately sexual!

Since the ‘60s, society has become more comfortable with women’s sexuality. Today, people are not shocked by a glimpse of nipple straining against the fabric of a woman’s t-shirt. Women are no longer defined by their breasts, although our “girls” are a most obvious expression of our femininity. And the nipples that rise from the rosy centers of our areolas are the perky reminders of our female sensuality.

Breast Reconstruction Without Femininity

Given the emotional connection between our breasts and our femininity, it is not surprising that women who lose a breast to cancer are so often disappointed with the results of their breast reconstruction surgery. A doughy mound of skin is a poor substitute for a natural breast with a perky nipple protruding from an attractive areola.

Creating Beautiful Breasts

Patient complaints have led surgeons to seek out experienced medical tattoo artists to place the finishing touches on breast reconstruction. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a recent survey called the three-dimensional nipple/areola complex created by professional medical tattoo experts “aesthetically superior.”

At the Whitney Center we have developed a medical tattooing technique that creates the appearance of a three-dimensional nipple; what we call the “illusion of protrusion.” Click here to watch a video the procedure.

Whitney Center medical tattoo artists are recognized experts in permanent areola repigmentation and the creation of natural-looking three-dimensional nipples. For beautiful breasts, come to the Whitney Center of Permanent Cosmetics in New York and New Jersey.

All About Alopecia and How to Camouflage It

Alopecia, commonly referred as baldness, comes in a variety of forms. It is often unpredictable – hair may never return, may grow back only to fall out once again, or grow back and remain indefinitely. Sadly, it can have significant psychological effects.

Types:

  • Alopecia areata
    An autoimmune disease attacking the hair follicles, resulting in the loss of hair clumps the size and shape of a quarter.
  • Alopecia areata totalis
    Loss of all of the hair on the head.

Am I at risk?
Anyone can develop alopecia areata, though your chances are slightly greater if you have a relative with this disease or a history of diabetes, lupus, or thyroid disease. Stress is also known to effect alopecia, though not scientifically proven.

Treatment options:
Alopecia cannot be cured, but may be treated with corticosteroids, Rogaine, and other topical contact allergens or sensitizers. Wigs, hats, and makeup are commonly used to hides its effects.

Camouflaging hair loss and thinning with permanent makeup
Permanent makeup and scalp re-pigmentation can help you hide the effects of alopecia permanently. Similar to a tattoo, scalp re-pigmentation utilizes special needles and ink, with results tailored to your individual ethnic background, balding pattern, and age. The procedure has virtually no down-time, typically healing in 5 days and offering a natural appearance following the exfoliation of the top layer of implant color.

Don’t suffer through alopecia. Contact the Whitney Center for Permanent Cosmetics today. With convenient locations in Florida, New York and New Jersey, the Whitney Center has the skills and expertise to help your alopecia disappear.
