Areola Reduction Surgery

We all know that with age comes sagging and when your breasts start to sag the size of your areola increases. The pigmented part on your nipple is the areola. c

Areolas may enlarge due to the breasts sagging, pregnancy, breast feeding, genetics and weight gain. However for those who are breast feeding, it is best to wait till you are done with breast feeding before opting for the surgery. Areola reduction surgery is a simple procedure which reduces the diameter of the areola and can be done on its own or along a breast reduction or breast augmentation or breast lift.

Who is a candidate for this procedure?

Any man or woman who is unhappy with his/her areolas is a candidate for this procedure. Areolas tend to stretch during and after pregnancy and some women find this uncomfortable hence opting for the areola reduction surgery. Other candidates include people who have asymmetrical areolas and would like them to be the same size or those with protruding or puffy areolas.

For women the procedure cannot be performed on growing breasts. The breasts have to have completely stopped growing in order to have the areola reduction surgery. This is usually in the early 20s. However it is totally different from men because teenage males can have the procedure done.
