IS AREOLA MICROPIGMENTATION THE SAME AS COSMETIC AREOLA RECONSTRUCTION?

No, this procedure is not the same as cosmetic areola reconstruction. This procedure uses pigment to create the areola shape as opposed to tissue in the case of cosmetic treatments. This procedure is executed by injecting the pigment into the skin, creating the illusion of a nipple without any 3D dimension using surgery and tissue. Nipple reconstruction is a surgical procedure where skin is grafted from a donor site and then used to reconstruct the nipple.
