Psychological Effects of Mastectomy For a Woman
A woman’s self-image can depend on the appearance of her breasts, therefore, a missing areola after breast reconstruction surgery can be psychologically devastating. A woman surviving breast cancer after undergoing a breast reconstruction can regain her figure.
However, without an areola, she may not feel “whole”.
Psychological Effects of Mastectomy For a Man
A man’s self-image can also be affected by the appearance of his chest and breasts. Areola tattooing provides a sense of “normalcy” for a man after a mastectomy.
In honor of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Anna Burns Permanent Cosmetics offers a limited number of free Breast-cancer Areola Re-pigmentation and Scar Relaxation treatments to breast cancer survivors during the month of October every year.
