With 20 years of experience and a third generation in the field, Ruth Swissa, C.M.M specializes in restoring pigment to the nipple-areola complex using only organic pigments, and masterful color-blending techniques. The application of skin-colored pigments to the restored areas of the areola is a less invasive supplement or alternative to the skin-grafting procedure, which for many years was the only available method of restoring balanced coloration to the area.

We’d be pleased to consult with you about the process, so feel free to contact us today with any questions you may have.
WHY THE AREOLA PIGMENTATION TECHNIQUE?
The application of flesh-colored pigments to the restored areas of the areola is a less invasive supplement or alternative to the skin-grafting procedure, which for many years was the only available method of restoring balanced coloration to the area. The process of areola pigmentation is a careful one and takes several visits to obtain the desired final result.
WHY RUTH SWISSA?
Ruth Swissa is highly respected and recommended by top doctors and surgeons who often refer their patients to her for areola pigmentation and restoration. This is because Ruth utilizes a variety of different application techniques, sensibly tailored to each patient. One of the more sought after techniques is the 3D areola pigmentation — this technique creates a hyperrealistic areola complexion by means of advanced color blending and its intricate application process. Other varying methods are used in combination or individually for the outcome a patient desires and one that will best suit the patient’s skin type/coloration.
The re-application of an areola truly marks the final, triumphant step in the journey of a breast-cancer survivor, instilling a renewed sense of self by way of restoration. The return of an areola to a bare breast reclaims the womanhood that breast cancer had cruelly appropriated.
