Areola Restoration

There are a number of ways to restore a nipple and areola after breast cancer and breast surgery. It is important to do some research and talk to people that have undergone the procedure that you’re interested in. It is also important to find the right professional to help you. Take your time making a decision regarding restoration. This is a decision that should take time and consideration. You should be comfortable with the level of commitment. For example, try something like a temporary tattoo first and then perhaps a nipple prosthesis. If you choose to undergo a more permanent procedure, at least you’ll have an idea of what your results could be. Above all, make sure that you are not pressured into restoring your areola and nipple before you are ready. You should be completely comfortable with the person that you choose to help you on this part of your journey.

Walking for health

Hello, My name is Algoma. Algoma means “valley of flowers”. I come from a big family. I have seven siblings. I grew up in the great outdoors. My childhood consisted of running around with my siblings and cousins. Ever since I was a child, I was intrigued by nature. I love flowers, the greeneries and the lakes. That is probably why I love walking so much.
