Jame Grendell

Jami Grendell, CST

Jami will be offering micropigmentation of the nipple-areola area after breast reconstruction to our patients in the Lewiston office.

After moving from Utah to Maine in 2000, Jami began working in the operating room at Central Maine Medical Center in 2001. He earned his degree in Surgical Technology in 2008 from the Maine Medical School of Surgical Technology and has been working as a certified operating room tech since.

Before joining Central Maine Plastic Surgery, Jami studied traditional tattooing. His experience includes an apprenticeship in Bangkok, Thailand. He has always been interested in expanding his knowledge base to the field of micropigmentation and in 2016 he went on to complete the Techniques in Areola Repigmentation course. He received his certification for the course from the Susan Church Permanent Makeup Education School in Fountain Valley, Ohio. The combination of Jami’s years being a surgical tech and experience in traditional tattooing makes him a great addition to our practice.

Jami is fluent in American Sign Language and when he is not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children.
