Breast reconstruction is a lengthy process that involves multiple surgeries, recoveries and trust. At the end of this process, the patient undergoes their final procedure, a nipple tattoo. For many, this final step brings their long journey and recovery with cancer to a close. It is only fitting that this physical and emotional milestone is performed by the skilled and compassionate tattoo artist, Cariangel. Her results speak for themselves and her artistry in creating natural and beautiful nipples may seem like minor detailing to some but it has immense and immeasurable meaning for so many of our patients. Carrie makes every patient feel comfortable and confident and even though they may only meet her for an hour’s time, countless patients continue to speak of her kindness and the long-term impact on their lives. She is a valuable and essential member of our team and we look forward to our continued working relationship and friendship for many years to come.
Carrie is a consummate professional with an artistic talent and special interest in helping women who have suffered the pain and emotional trauma of mastectomy. Carrie provides the incredibly valuable service of nipple and areola tattooing as a final step in breast reconstruction. She is personable and professional, and creates a comfortable environment for patients undergoing the final step of this sensitive surgical experience.
My practice focuses entirely on breast reconstruction, and I specialize in natural tissue breast reconstruction. Nipple and areola tattooing is the final step to complete the restorative process. For women who opt for this step of the reconstruction, it is of paramount importance to restore a reconstructed nipple and areola that looks normal and natural. Choosing a tattoo artist for this step of the reconstructive process is critical to achieve a realistic appearance, and Carrie consistently demonstrates excellent artistic ability. Carrie is talented, professional, and compassionate, and we have thus been working together for many years.
