Title: Areola repigmentation
Post by: vulcan on October 04, 2012, 09:05:07 PM
Hi guys, new user here, I had gynecomastia surgery performed approx 18 months ago, I had lipo and gland/tissue removal so there are scars just under my areola due to the incisions. I was just wondering if anyone here has had areola repigmentation performed on them in order to camouflage the scars and if so what are the results?

thanks guys.

Repigmenting (tattooing) within scars can be unpredictable. If your hypopigmented area is small enough you may consider scar revision.

What are my realistic expectations with scar revision surgery?
