What is Nipple & Areola Correction Surgery?

Concerns about nipple length and/or areolar size are more common than you think and can affect men just as much as women.

Inverted nipples affect 10 to 20% of women. Inverted nipples occur when the milk ducts leading to the nipple are too short or overly tight. This causes the nipple to be pulled into the areola – the dark skin around the nipple – giving it a flat or depressed appearance. Some nipples can be slightly inverted, and others can be severely inverted.

Elongated nipples are also more common than you may think and affect a wide range of women with small and large breasts. Length of the nipple can often get worse after breast feeding. Areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) size is a matter of personal preference. Men generally have smaller areolas when compared to women; however, both sexes can be affected by a large sized areola. Areolar size can change over time after breast feeding generally getting larger.

If your nipples or areolar size are making you feel self‐conscious or uncomfortable, nipple correction or areolar reduction may be the answer. Nipple Correction or Areolar Reduction is a simple and effective procedure that has helped thousands of people change their lives.

Nipple Correction or Areola reduction is typically performed under local anesthesia within one hour.

Two Types Of Nipple Correction Surgery

You have two different types of Nipple Correction procedures to choose from.

Nipple Reduction

This procedure is a minimally invasive surgery. Your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will start by reducing the length of the actual nipple to make your nipple more proportionate to your breast. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic and will take approximately 30 minutes.

Areola Reduction

Your surgeon will start by using a nipple marker to choose an appropriate areola size that suits your breast. After the appropriate areola size has been marked, your surgeon will remove a circular area of skin. For a beautiful skin tightening effect, your surgeon will suture your breast skin to the areola tissue, which is the dark skin around your nipple.

Areola Reduction is performed under local anesthetic within one hour. Together, you and your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will review all of your options in detail to determine which type of Nipple or Areola Correction is best for you.

Nipple and Areola Surgery is often performed with other non-surgical treatments, including Botox and injectable Filler treatments, including Lip FillerUnder Eye FillerJaw ContouringChin FillerTop Model CheekbonesNon Surgical Rhinoplasty, Belkyra Double Chin Fat Removal, and Skin Boosters.

Choosing Your Surgeon

When considering a surgeon, it’s important to research all of your options and choose a Surgical specialist who is Board Certified in both Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. While many plastic surgeons perform many different types of surgeries, you should select a surgeon who focuses strictly on a specific procedure and is recognized for excellence in this procedure.

What are the benefits if your surgeon has a reconstructive surgery background? Most of the world’s best aesthetic surgeons began with reconstructive practices. In fact, almost all of the groundbreaking techniques in aesthetic surgery have reconstructive origins.

Reconstructive surgery cases are typically more complex and often require highly specialized surgical techniques. Comfort, confidence, and predictability with advanced reconstructive surgery techniques have become powerful tools often adapted to aesthetic procedures.

All of the Plastic Surgeons at The First Glance are Board Certified Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons. Many of our surgeons are also Double Board Certified.
