Areola that are large (due to genetics or pregnancy) can be resized and reshaped as you desire with little to no visible scarring. Wide areola diameter can be reduced to match the rest of the breast tissue, and the size and shape of your nipples.

These procedures can be performed alone or in conjunction with breast augmentation or a breast lift.

Planning your treatment

The consultation

At the consultation, the status and size of the areola will be examined to determine your suitability for a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery. It will be done in the office under local anaesthetics.

The surgery

This procedure is usually performed under local anaesthetics, taking approximately 20 minutes.

After surgery

The sutures are dissolvable and therefore do not need to be removed. The wound will be checked at one week. Special instructions will be given to maintain the desired shape of the nipple
