A new scientific publication confirms: the areola-nipple tattoo is good for the psyche of women affected by breast pathologies; but in today’s hospitals the figure of the dermopigmenter is missing.
A new scientific publication, published in December 2020, in the Italian journal “Annali dell’Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS)”, reports the data collected among 169 patients suffering from breast pathology submitted, after surgery, to the areola-nipple complex tattoo reconstruction. This sheds new light on the need to find specialized dermopigmentation personnel within public health facilities to enrich the service of treatments currently offered in postmastectomy or partial breast removal.
There are scars that mark the end of a bad experience, while there are other scars that often initiate a long and painful healing process and that can forever hide fundamental traits of femininity.
There are 169 patients treated for breast cancer who, between 2010 and 2016, underwent paramedical dermopigmentation treatments (medical tattoo used as a complementary technique in the reconstruction of the areola and the nipple) in the hospital of Treviso, Italy thanks to a project carried out in collaboration with the local headquarters of the Italian League to Fight Cancer (LILT).
This is what emerges from the article “Dermopigmentation of the nipple-areola complex in a dedicated breast cancer center, following the Treviso Hospital (Italy) LILT model” published in December 2020 in the ISS journal mentioned above.
From the data it appears that of the 169 patients treated in a total of 309 sessions, 90% expressed a high level of satisfaction from the point of view of aesthetic results, considering the treatment very useful and beneficial. Study results show that nipple-areola complex dermopigmentation is a safe approach that provides concrete benefits to patients.
Rita Molinaro, dermopigmenter, makeup artist and production director in the cosmetic field, as well as one of the authors of the scientific article in question, is committed to the recognition of oncological dermopigmentation in women affected by breast pathologies. For more than 15 years she has collaborated with associations such as LILT and ANDOS, holding conferences and university talks on the subject in Italy and abroad, treating more than 1,000 cancer patients.
“Tattooing or micropigmentation for medical purposes is a non-surgical, simple and safe technique that is also and above all good for the psyche of women – says Rita Molinaro who continues – I jealously guard the hundreds of messages of happiness and sincere gratitude from the women I have treated. “
