Scar Camouflage Process
It’s important to know that the first course of action in a scar camouflage treatment plan to improve the appearance of a scar is to start with MCA Microneedling. This can encourage a white scar to re-pigment itself naturally by stimulating Melanin production in the scar tissue. Natural skin colour may come back into the scar tissue as it is broken down and the scar can become less obvious. If the scar can be encouraged to re-pigment on its own this will give the most natural effect.
However, if this does not occur after Microneedling, Mosaic Micropigmentation techniques can be used to gently implant skin coloured pigments into the scar. This can help to match the natural skin colours and blend the scar more closely into the surrounding skin.
Scar Camouflage after Mastectomy & Breast Cancer
I create permanent 3D Nipples for people who have undergone Mastectomy Surgery for Breast Cancer. However, there is often other scarring to the breast area. This can be helped by MCA Microneedling and Micropigmentation. Halo scars around the areola can be helped to blend into the surrounding skin. Portacath scars can be camouflaged. Scars from TRAM or DIEP flap surgery may be camouflaged.

It is also possible to create a custom decorative mastectomy tattoo. This is designed to cover scars and draw the eye away from them, flattering the shape of the breast. View my artistic tattoo gallery to see my decorative tattoo work.
Scalp Scar Camouflage & Hair Transplant Scar Camouflage
The same techniques can be used to camouflage scars on the scalp too. For example, cuts on the head or beard and moustache which leave gaps in the hair. Small areas of white scalp can be micro pigmented so that they blend into the hair and are no longer as obvious. Hair transplant techniques may leave a little row of white scars across the back of the head. These can be camouflaged to blend into the natural hair colour using Micropigmentation.

Scar Camouflage after Breast Enlargement, Uplift or Breast Reduction Surgery
Surgery to the breast can often result in scarring. This is often in the form of a white halo scar around the nipple or a lollipop scar running vertically down the breast. Micropigmentation, in conjunction with MCA Microneedling is a good option to camouflage these scars as well as others which may occur as part of breast surgery. If parts of the areola are missing, these can be restored by careful artistic tattooing.

Scar Camouflage after Gender Reassignment Surgery [ Top Surgery ] FTM MTF
Gender reassignment surgery can leave scarring to the chest area. Scar Camouflage Tattooing may be able to help minimise the appearance of the scars and blend them into the surrounding skin as much as possible. If a nipple graft has failed, artistic tattooing can restore the appearance of a realistic 3D Nipple. Chest scars may also be able to be hidden by a decorative tattoo if appropriate.
