Nipple & Areola Reduction
Genetics, trauma, aging or breastfeeding, can cause large and disproportionate areolae and nipples. They may even be misshapen or asymmetric. Your areolae and nipples can be reduced in size and/or modified to improve their shape so they appear more balanced.
The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia as an outpatient surgery. You may experience some discomfort for few days after surgery which can be managed with pain medication. You can expect to return to work after few days of recovery, as you should feel more like yourself. You should avoid strenuous activity for at least three weeks.
To achieve the best results of nipple & areola reduction, women need to meet the following criteria:
• Be at or near your ideal goal weight.
• Having realistic expectations
• Be a non-smoker, as smoking can complicate both the procedure and your recovery time.
• Be in good physical and psychological health.
