October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Join with us this month in reaching out to women of all ages to encourage breast self examination and proper scheduling of mammograms to prevent breast cancer.
With breast cancer being one of the leading causes of death for women, it is a disease that touches us all at some point in time.
You may have a mother, sister, or friend who is a breast cancer survivor. Let's rally together to help those around us be proactive with their health to catch any symptoms early.
The Whitney Center for Permanent Cosmetics is promoting a unique 3-D technique of areola and nipple cosmetic tattooing applied by their founder and Board Certified technician, Melany Whitney, this October to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Melany, as an experienced permanent cosmetic technician, has developed a very unique skill that helps breast cancer survivors regain their dignity and femininity after cancer surgery. This special artistically implanted cosmetic tattooing pigment is natural looking; where there was no breast nipple after surgery, one is created with a special "illusion of protrusion" tattoo.
Testimonials from patients and clients reflect gratitude for this "life changing" procedure that The Whitney Center for Permanent Cosmetics provides. Clients call the procedure--detailed, natural, realistic, and 3-D in appearance. Many have stated how life-changing the procedure has been for them; giving back their confidence and personal sense of beauty.
The acclaimed owner and founder of the firm, Melany Whitney, is a graduate of Cornell University's School of Art and Architecture. She has been helping women by re-designing their nipples and areolas (the circular area around the nipples) using her unique artistic talent and skill using micropigmentation (cosmetic tattooing).
"Her work is a tour-de-force of artistry," says Mia Talmor MD at Weill Cornell, a leading breast cancer treatment center in New York City. "It's so real-looking--and even gives the illusion of nipple protrusion--that some patients almost forget that they've had the work done."
Adam Kolker, M.D., an aesthetic and reconstructive surgeon in New York City, has announced that Melany Whitney will perform the final stage of nipple tattoo on his patients once he has completed his portion of the reconstruction surgeries and procedures. Dr. Kolker is an Associate Clinical professor of Plastic Surgery at the Mount Sinai hospital. He is board certified by both The American Board of Surgery and The American Board of Plastic Surgery, and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has been recognized as one of New York's Top Doctors by Castle Connolly.
Unfortunately after breast cancer surgery, many women are unable to keep their nipples and areola area. This loss can be devastating, since this area defines the appearance of the breast and gives a woman her sense of femininity. The Whitney Center's special procedure has become so frequently recommended by physicians that insurance companies now will routinely pay for this type of specialized after-care treatment.
In addition to this unique and in-demand service for breast cancer patients, the Whitney Center also treats and camouflages scars from breast surgeries such as breast lifts, breast augmentation, and mastopexy.
