I was diagnosed with breast cancer on February 5, 2015, and had my double mastectomy and reconstruction in April that year. From my first visit, I knew I was in good hands.
You and your team have taken such good care of me! You’ve been patient with my list of questions I bring to each visit, you’re always kind and helpful, and I never feel rushed at an appointment. You always make me feel like I have 100% of your attention.
My goal from the start of this journey was to end up with “the best possible outcome.” Two years ago, I had no idea that the best possible outcome could look as good as it does. I am very happy. Thank you, Dr. Vega—you and your team are outstanding!

Hello, my name is Melanie Morreale. I attended art school in 1992, majoring in graphic art. Some of the things I loved were color theory, photography and illustration. I started my tattooing apprenticeship while in school and began working full time as an artistic tattoo artist right after college.
In 2000, I opened Rite of Passage in Victor, NY and have been doing my artistic tattooing ever since. I love what I do and that I get to know so many colorful clients. Beginning in 2002, I started doing medically supervised work such as permanent make up, camouflage, and corrective tattooing. I have found that this has been some of my most rewarding work. It has been a great pleasure to work with patients. I enjoy my areola work the most due to the dramatic difference in appearance and the importance of the procedure. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to feel like I may possibly make a difference for these women. I look forward to working with Vega Plastic Surgery as their tattoo artist and am happy to join their team.
