Micro-pigmentation in Toronto Includes Breast Reconstruction Procedures

micropigmentation torontoBecause Canada's leading training centre is located in the GTA, many certified micro-pigmentation technicians can be found in Toronto. Most of these professionals work with permanent makeup, applying lip liner, lip colour, permanent eyebrows, and permanent eyeliner. But some are moving into the field of breast reconstruction, where micro-pigmentation is being used to great effect.
Breast cancer is the second deadliest cancer for women, and incidence of the disease has been on the rise for the past half-century. Breast cancer is now the leading cause of death for women in their forties.
Of the women who undergo a mastectomy due to breast cancer, many opt to have reconstructive breast surgery. This helps some women recover a sense of normalcy, and improves their body image and self-esteem.
Once a patient and her surgeon are satisfied with the shape of the reconstructed breast, they may begin construction of the nipple-areola complex. This part of the process is optional, but greatly enhances the look of the breast. A skin graft is performed, from another area of the body. (This may involve harvesting skin from the remaining nipple, the labia, the groin, or earlobe.) The final part of the process is the tattooing of the areola area. The patient's medical team will refer her to a certified micro-pigmentation technician or nurse.
Depending on the type of skin used for the graft, techniques will vary. A cosmetic tattoo specialist needs to be skilled in these, as well as in drawing of the actual areolas, setting of boundaries, needle choice and size, color matching to the surviving breast, and post care requirements.
Additional micro-pigmentation may be required to camouflage scars on other areas of the breast.
Micro-pigmentation at this level requires advanced training, skill, and sensitivity. For those considering a career that can be both creative and fulfilling, the role of an areola micro-pigmentation technician offers a great deal.
