Genetics, breastfeeding, hormonal changes and other factors impact the size of your breast nipples and areolas. For some people, overly large nipples or areolas can be embarrassing – some larger nipples may even be noticeable through clothing. Two of the options in cosmetic breast procedures are areola and nipple reduction surgery, which we offer at pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center in Toledo, OH.
There are many reasons an individual may consider nipple reduction surgery. Some patients have had wider or longer nipples since their breasts developed, while others have nipples that changed over time. Nipples that are sagging, asymmetrical, stretched or overly large can affect confidence, especially in intimate moments. Nipple reduction or reshaping surgery can create nipples that are more balanced and symmetrical in shape for an improved breast appearance. Often, nipple reduction procedures also include reshaping or reducing the size of the areolas.
Areola Reduction Surgery
Some women have areolas that are larger and seem out of proportion with their breast size. Large or puffy areolas are common with patients with tuberous breasts. Areola and nipple reduction can be performed together to reshape and resize the nipples and areolas for better aesthetics. The goal is to achieve a nipple and areola that are symmetrical and match the size and shape of the breast. The incisions can be carefully hidden along the edges of the areola for a discreet appearance.
While nipple or areola reduction can be performed as stand-alone surgeries, they are often combined with other cosmetic breast procedures. Dr. Peter Koltz is a top breast plastic surgeon who can perform nipple reduction while completing a breast lift, augmentation or reduction procedure. If you are unhappy with any aspect of your breast, nipple or areola appearance, there are options to achieve more attractive breasts.
