Areola Reduction Surgery
The areola is the darker patch of skin that surrounds your nipple, and unfortunately for some people – both men and women – it can make you feel highly uncomfortable about getting undressed in front of a partner if you feel that your areolas are too large.
Now a new technique has been developed and perfected and it allows the skilled medical practitioners at At BB Clinic & Beauty Center to reduce the areola so that it is no longer a source of embarrassment. There are a number of reasons for enlarged areolas but they can be overcome with a fairly simple cosmetic procedure.
Reasons why your areolas may be enlarged
Slightly larger-than-normal areolas exist for a number of reasons. In most cases they are hereditary and passed down through generations however there are a number of other reasons. Breast implants cause the tissue to stretch which enlarges the area, as can breast feeding after pregnancy and excessive weight gain. The good news is that whatever the cause, enlarged areolas are treated using the same relatively simple surgery.
Areola reduction surgery
If you have large areolas and you’re ready to do something about them, it’s time to talk to the professionals at BB Clinic. The procedure can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift or reduction, or alone as a single surgery.
Areola reduction is a very safe procedure which is usually performed under local anesthetic, although full anesthetic can be used if needed. The operation should not have too much of an effect on your daily routine although setting aside a few days to recover is advised so that stitches do not re-open or other complications occur.
As areola reduction is such a simple routine it may be well worthwhile consulting us about other options that you can have in conjunction with your areola reduction surgery.
