Pigmentation services for breast cancer patients

Pigmentation services for breast cancer patients

£9,774 was awarded to the James Paget University Hospital in spring 2009 to fund a nurse to provide pigmentation services to breast cancer patients.

Following breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction a new nipple/areola can be created using a procedure called micro-pigmentation. This involves cosmetic tattooing with coloured pigments and is often used to complement the surgical reconstruction of the nipple. The procedure can improve the cosmetic appearance of the breast and boost a patient’s self-esteem.

The grant funded a nurse to provide micro-pigmentation sessions for patients who have undergone breast reconstruction. This allowed other members of the Breast Care Team to be trained in the technique and freed up time for staff to be trained in other skills to enable the provision of nurse-led clinics.

We can help to improve your quality of life, physical health, and mental wellbeing.

Some people take to the skies, run, jump, walk, swim and cycle whilst others make tea, bake cakes or shave heads.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
