medical tattoo, breast cancer, scars, tattoo, restoration
The application of medical tattooing in plastic and reconstructive surgery for scar concealment, nipple-areola complex reconstruction, and other cosmetically restorative processes is supported by a significant empirical literature.1 Patient and physician outcome ratings are very high. A review of the methods used in these studies reveals an accumulation of specialized scientific knowledge concerning applications, equipment operation, and artistic technique. The establishment of the medical tattoo assistant as an allied health profession is necessary to protect the public and to ensure the highest quality service.
