How It Works
There are 2 methods that doctors use to reduce the size of the areola:
· Peripapillary method:
Suitable for areola diameter of around 4.5cm or resection width of around 1 cm. In this method, the doctor will cut doughnut-shaped piece of tissue out of your areola around the nipple and will then be stitched together. The scars will not be noticeable as they will be formed around the nipple.
