  4.  Large areola.
  5.  Irregularly shaped areolas or nipples.

Duration: 1 Hour

Incision:  Around areola or nipple

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal: 7 to 10 days after the procedure

Recovery period: 7 Days

Anesthesia: Sedation

How are Nipple and Areola correction surgeries performed?

a.  Long / Large nipples

A simple surgical procedure where excess nipple tissue is removed and reshaped to form the desired shape and size. Minimal scarring is seen due to the original, irregular texture of the nipples.

b. Inverted Nipples

There are two methods used to correct inverted nipples; one that preserves milk ducts and one that doesn’t.

The preferred method here at FacePlus is the former and means that breastfeeding is still a viable option for mothers-to-be. However, if the cause of the inverted nipple is due to the milk duct itself, then preserving the duct could reverse the effect of the procedure.  In the second approach the milk duct is not preserved but does allow for more projection and visible nipple.

c. Large areola

Areola reduction surgery aims to decrease the size of the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple), reduce larger nipples, tighten drooping areolas, or create a more symmetrical appearance to their chest. It can also be a part of a complete breast enhancement, which includes a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction

There are two methods to reduce the areola; one from the outside in towards the center of the nipple, and the other from the center going out towards the edge.

The first (outside-in) method is more common and results in a more dramatic and noticeable reformed areola. Scarring around the new areola is also kept to a minimum.

The second (inside-out) method results in a more natural look to the areola following surgery, however, there is a limit to the amount of reduction that can be made.
