El Truchan featuring on Health Awareness - Bringing confidence to cancer survivors
BREAST HEALTH Medical Tattooing, Microblading and Permanent Makeup is helping women and men to feel confident, especially if an illness has impacted the way they feel about themselves.
Women and men that have gone through breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, can have the final touches completed with 3D nipple & areola, Medical Tattoo restoration.
A boost to body image
Using pigments to match the original or remaining nipple/areola a tattoo can restore the areas and also help cover up any scarring from the surgery. These treatments provide an important part in giving a substantial boost to body image, confidence and gain a sense of normality while getting on with life again.
Combining experience, artistic ability and proper colour selection, tattoos can create the illusion of real nipples/areola’s post mastectomy. The effects are perfectly realistic and natural.

What to expect
Recreating the nipple and areola is the final component in breast reconstruction. Some patients are comfortable without having a nipple, and do not wish to have further surgery. Others choose the non-surgical option of tattooing without invasive reconstruction.
Medical Tattooing allows colour pigmentation to simulate the nipple and/or areola; creating a 3D image of an actual nipple, montgomery glands and areola texture. This gives the most natural realistic looking results.
During a consultation, you will discuss colours, shape and placement of the new nipples/areolas and the aftercare. The areas will be measured for the symmetry and positioning. El explains how she mixes custom colour blends.
Microblading and permanent makeup eyebrows
Some people loose their eyebrows during cancer treatment and while for some they grow back, for others they don’t. Microblading or permanent makeup can help to bring back little piece of something that's missing.
The great thing about microblading and permanent makeup is that it offers a natural-looking alternative if you have completely lost your eyebrows and are awaiting them to grow back, dealing with long term eyebrow loss, or even just experiencing eyebrow thinning.
