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. Much like breasts, areolas vary in different sizes and shapes. It is quite okay and normal to have large areolas but this sometimes might make someone to feel uncomfortable. That is where areola reduction surgery comes in. Areola reduction surgery is the process of reducing the size of the areola.
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.
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.
As with any other surgical procedure there are risks and maybe complications. This however can be minimized by choosing the correct doctor who is qualified, licensed and with a good track record. Someone who will not hesitate to answer all the questions that you might have.
After the procedure you might have some numbness and loss of sensitivity which is temporary. It is best to have the areola reduction surgery after you are completely done with giving birth and breast feeding.
