What is Areola Reduction With Elastic Thread?

The areola is the pigmented area on the breast around the nipple. It can sometimes be large and almost covering most areas of the breast. That could be a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, or other few reasons. Some people find it not eye-pleasing and wish they could have a smaller areola. Areola Reduction at our affiliated clinic can help to restore a more pleasing appearance as well as a more pleasant feel.

How It Works

Uniquely, the procedure at our affiliated clinic works using elastic thread. Elastic Thread for areola reduction is a simple procedure that works by inserting the elastic threads on the areas to be improved. It requires only small incisions, which reduces the process of tissue dissection. The threads aim to restore the tissues to their original position before drooping or expansion occurred. Other than the reduction effect, the results include activating the elasticity of the skin and the biological re-adaptation of the tissues, which enhances the ideal natural finishes.
