Micropigmentation at UPMC in Central Pa.

Reconstructive tattooing to restore a natural look for breasts and eyebrows.

A healthy self-image is an important part of cancer recovery. Brow loss and the loss of the areola and nipple can be side effects of cancer treatment. The UPMC Breast Care Center offers reconstructive tattooing services that provide natural-looking results for eyebrows and restoring the breast to its more natural look.

Micropigmentation is a form of tattooing that places pigment (color) beneath the skin. Our specialist will work with you to determine the right size and colors for you, using a mix of pigments to create a three-dimensional, natural looking result to restore the appearance of the areola, nipple and eyebrows. Our specialist uses shading and depth in the tattooing process to create a realistic result. Our goal is to give back to women that sense of self when they see themselves in the mirror. It’s the uplifting, finishing touch to recovery. View before and after photos.
