Nipple & Areola Reduction

Nipple and areola reduction is often suited to men or women who are concerned that their nipples and / or areolas are larger or more prominent than they would like them to be. The procedure is tailored to the individual and addresses one or both of the nipples / areola. Large nipples can protrude more than is considered the norm and are more likely to be visible through t-shirts and tight-fitting tops. Particularly larger areola can also be wide in diameter, or can be puffy.

Reducing the appearance of the nipples / areola helps to restore a more natural appearance of the breast. This is done by making a small incision in the nipple so that excess skin and tissue can be trimmed away. Daily showering and applying an antibiotic ointment to the wound is advised while the nipple heals. You’ll be assessed at a follow-up appointment, 7 – 10 days after surgery, when the stitches are likely to be removed.

Addressing the areola can be done either on its own or in combination with the nipple reduction. Making a cut around the border of the areola will enable excess skin to be cut away, not only making the areola smaller in size, but also with a neater edge.

In many cases large nipples and / or areolae accompany other breast concerns, such as enlarged breasts. This procedure can be carried out in combination with other breast procedures such as breast reduction (for women) or gynaecomastia correction (for men) if this is necessary and you are deemed suitable, or as a stand-alone treatment option.

Frequently asked questions

Chester Cosmetic Surgery will carry out a full and thorough examination of your nipples and areola before recommending this procedure. You may be suitable if you are in generally good health, do not smoke, are not pregnant or breastfeeding and are presenting with enlarged / prominent nipples and / or areola (the dark skin that surrounds the nipple).

The techniques Miss Breahna uses in her surgical breast procedures is safe for patients to undergo, if they are deemed suitable for surgery.

The nipples and areola are an especially sensitive part of the body, and often respond to touch. For this reason, cutting into the skin on this area can be painful and uncomfortable. Chester Cosmetic Surgery considers local anaesthetic a suitable method of pain relief as it will completely numb the treatment area so patients will not feel any pain.

An incision in the skin will cause the tissues some trauma, albeit controlled. In response the area will become swollen and bruised for a couple of weeks, and may be open to infection. Miss Breahna will provide excellent aftercare advice to help patients manage the after effects of surgery, and recover well.

A period of 12 weeks may need to be allowed before the full results can be seen.
