After the nipple has been surgically rebuilt, it can be tattooed to add color and create the areola. Most medical aestheticians in plastic surgeons’ offices use the dermabrasion technique, which uses a high-frequency vibrating probe to push pigment into the skin. To achieve full color, several sessions may be needed. The range of colors available for dermabrasion may be limited, and dermabrasion tattoos tend to fade over time.
