How it works

How does Nipple/Areola Reduction work?

  • Nipple Reduction

An incision is made in the nipple and excess skin will be dissected and removed. Sutures will be placed to attach the nipple to the base. This will reduce the height or reshape the nipple according to the patient’s desire. 

  • Areola Reduction

A doughnut-shaped incision will be made along the border of the existing areola to remove any extra tissue. The new areola will be secured with a permanent suture deep inside the breast. This suture will prevent the areola from stretching.
