This 40-year-old man felt very self-conscious about the scar around his areola from a previous surgery. The redness around his areola made the scar particularly noticeable when he removed his shirt.
During his consultation at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, his surgeon examined the scar and determined that a micropigmentation procedure, called scar camouflaging, was the best option for diminishing the scar's appearance. The process is similar to tattooing, where a small vibrating needle is used to inject micropigment underneath the skin. Micropigmentation, often called permanent makeup, can be used on scars, discolored skin, or to apply "makeup" permanently to enhance facial features. For this patient, a nude, skin-tone pigment was injected to match the surrounding tone of his skin.
The procedure did not take very long and, after it was completed, this patient's scar was much fainter and far less red. Following his permanent makeup in Los Angeles, this patient felt relieved that his scar no longer stood out against his skin.
