tape over puffy nipples gone bad
« on: May 02, 2010, 03:34:40 pm »

"I have seen horrible scars and pigmentation from damage to the skin from tape.  Sometimes the scars and pigmentation fade, for others the deformity is permanent.  Tape is a dangerous technique and not recommended.  Chest Shaping Garments for Gynecomastia are much safer and work better."

Patience is one option. Such pigmentation may or may be permanent and not fade. Depending on what I find during an evaluation I may recommend for my patient Scar Care and or Second Stage Compression Vest. The compression garment helps with scars. Scars that evolve under pressure do better than scars without pressure. The compression also acts as a Body Shaping Garment which contours without the tape issue.  I have seen such issues resolve over time and others that remained an issue.

Prevention is much better. I have not seen any decent other alternatives for the bizarre pigmentation shapes and scars taping has created.

Hope this helps,

Pigmentary changes after using tape (technically called post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation) is best treated by time or occasionally with a bleaching cream, such as Tri-Luma.  Ask your dermatologist or plastic surgeon if you are a candidate to use it.
