Areola Reduction

This is performed in order to reduce the size of your areolas.

What is it?

Surgery to reduce the size and contour the areolas of the breasts is known as areola reduction surgery, or areola reduction and repositioning. A breast lift, a breast reduction, or a breast augmentation may be combined with this procedure or carried out separately. The purpose of the operation is to make the areola smaller and/or more cosmetically attractive by repositioning it. Depending on the needs of the patient, a range of procedures can be used for areola reduction. Frequently utilized methods include fat grafting, incisions, and lasers.


The aesthetics, symmetry, and balance of the breasts are all enhanced after areola reduction surgery. Additionally, it helps ease nipple discomfort brought on by extra tissue. Moreover, it can aid in minimizing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and other imperfections. Finally, areola reduction might help to enhance the breasts’ overall shape and look.

How the Procedure Works

  • Before & Preparation

Before the surgery, the patient will be expected to prepare for it in the following ways:

  • Avoid certain medications like aspirin and ibuprofen a week before the surgery.
  • Arrange transport to and from the clinic on the day of the procedure.
  • Observing a fast the day before surgery.
  • Bathing the day of the operation with surgical soap if general anesthesia will be used.
  • Avoid cosmetics and makeup on the day of surgery.
  • Remove all jewelry from the body the day before surgery.
  • On the day of surgery, put on comfortable, loose-fitting attire.
  • During the Procedure

Generally, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia are used during areola reduction surgery. The optimum course of action for treatment will be decided by the surgeon after evaluating the size and shape of the areolas. Frequently utilized methods include fat grafting, incisions, and lasers. Excess tissue from the areolas is removed during the operation either by excision or laser ablation. To restructure and condense the areolas, the edges may be sutured. Fat grafting may be utilized in some circumstances to restore lost tissue and enhance the contour of the areolas.
