Areolar Reduction


Individuals with large areolas may consider undergoing a reductive operation, which can be performed at the same time as Breast Lift and Breast Reduction.

Recommended for:

  • Individuals with overly large or asymmetrical areolae.


Operation details:

The surgeon will hand-outline the new shape and size of the areola. After applying anesthesia, the surgeon will cut open along the drawn outline, remove excess part of the areola, adjust the position and shape of the new areola relative to the breast, and close the wound.


Post-operational treatments:

  1. Clean the area daily, avoid contact with water until suture removal date.

  2. Wear a sports bra for 2 months after the operation.

  3. Remove the suture on Day 14, after which the wound can be in contact with water.

  4. The areolae will gradually take position within 3-6 months.

  5. The scar  may be visible during the first 3 months, and then will become less noticeable within 1 year.


Possible side-effects:

Minor scarring around the areola area.
