About Nipple Reduction/ Areola Reduction

The primary goal of these procedures is to make the size of your nipples or areola proportional to your breast size, for aesthetic balance.

“The size of your nipples and areola is dependent on your genes, it can be inherited. However, certain factors like stretching of the tissue due to weight gain, breast implants, pregnancy and breastfeeding can also result to increase in areola size. Medically and aesthetically speaking, your nipples should be at the center of your breast and should complement your breast size. Meaning, if you have small breasts, your nipples should be small too, for a balanced look, and vice versa. The same thing goes for the areola,”
Dr. Alonzo states.

The Nipple Reduction surgery:

For Nipple reduction, small incision is made on the nipple itself; the size can be reduced either from the end or by removing a section of outer skin from the base of the nipple. For Areola repair, small incision is made around the perimeter of the areola. Both of these surgeries are done in the clinic, as an outpatient procedure, under local anesthesia, and only takes about an hour to complete.

Post surgery and recovery:

You will experience tenderness, swelling and some minor discomfort and pain, but these can be relieved by medications prescribed by Dr. Alonzo. Because the surgery involves only small incision and is only skin deep, recovery time is quick. In fact, you can go back to work the next day following your surgery, or after a day of rest, but avoid strenuous activities for a week or two. Final result of each procedure is permanent and can be seen after two weeks Risks associated with nipple and/or areola reduction are minimal, may include change or loss of sensation, infection, irregular shape (for areola), and scarring. To achieve optimal results, Nipple and/or Areola reduction can be done alone or in conjunction with breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction.
