What is Areola Reduction Surgery?
Areola reduction surgery is a treatment performed to reduce the size and shape of nipples. The treatment enables the modification of the length as well as the diameter of the nipples to have better appearance.
How It Works
There are 3 methods to reduce the size of the nipples, and the best procedure will be selected by the doctor according to the patient's conditions. The methods address different concerns: nipple size/diameter, nipple length, or both. Areola reduction surgery is a minor surgery procedure done with few mm incisions required on the side and tip of the nipples. Scars after the surgery will be hidden by wrinkles of the nipples. The surgery does not affect lactation as the mammary glands and ducts remain intact.
