Areola reduction is a quick procedure which removes the excess brown area
from around the nipple. Areola reduction surgery can be carried out on
its own under local anesthesia or as part of an overall breast reduction
or breast lift. Small reductions leave an inconspicuous scar around the
base of the nipple. Larger reductions can leave a scar around the edge
of the areola.
This procedure is particularly affective at relieving any embarrassment
related to the condition, and can commonly be completed in under an hour
with no need for General Anesthetics.
Whatever your condition may be, the Aesthetic Surgery Institute can provide
the leading techniques and facilities for your treatment.
After your surgery and beyond…
An areola reduction is a relatively small surgery, and is performed under
local anesthesia, which means the recovery time will be quick. After the
first week you will have a follow up appointment which will allow your
surgeon to inspect your areola and ensure you are healing as you should
be. At this point your surgeon will be able to tailor advice for your
specific situation, based on your job, and exercise routines.
