What Is Nipple Reduction Surgery?

Sometimes, the nipples become oversized or the areolas enlarge and become oval-shaped. This can happen due to genetic factors, breastfeeding, or skin stretching. While these natural changes in breast appearance are not harmful, many women prefer to have their nipples and areolas made smaller and more symmetrical to reduce visibility through sheer or silky outfits, and for a younger more pleasing appearance.

A nipple reduction procedure reduces the size of the nipples and/or the dark skin (areola) around them. If the darker skin is reduced, the nipple reduction technically includes an areola reduction. However, areola reduction surgery can also be performed on its own.

What to Expect

The Process for Nipple and Areola Reduction Surgery

The process of areola reduction is actually quite simple. The procedure takes 1-2 hours and is not especially invasive, so you may even be able to return to work a few days after surgery with pain medication and a surgical bra if your surgeon says it is appropriate.

To achieve the look of a smaller, nicely shaped areola, the surgeon will remove a portion of excess skin to create a smaller surface area. A small wedge of nipple tissue might be removed to create a rounder, smaller nipple while leaving the milk ducts intact.

During areola reduction surgery recovery, you should rest and engage in only light activities for the first week or so, as your doctor recommends. After an areola reduction, you’ll need to follow care instructions while your dissolvable stitches disappear. You’ll also need a follow-up visit to ensure the healing process is going as expected.
