The “Solidarity Areolas” project was created by the ÁMATE Association. Currently, Walk for Life Foundation finances the micro-pigmentation treatment to restore the appearance of the breast after surgery or mastectomy which involves the removal of the areola.
Following breast cancer surgery, some patients choose to have their nipple and dark area, also known as areola, reconstructed through the micro-pigmentation technique. Pigmentation allows the reproduction of the entire removed areola, camouflaging scars, or matching the colour, size and position of the newly pigmented areola with the remaining one.
The micro-pigmentation aesthetic treatment, financed by Walk for Life Foundation, makes the reconstructed breast to be more like the original one, with the subsequent benefit in terms of psychological and aesthetic well-being, as well as the recovery and improvement of the patient’s confidence and self-esteem.
