What is Areola Reduction Surgery and who needs it?

Areola reduction surgery is a procedure used for reducing size of the pigmented skin that surrounds the nipple. This procedure is suitable for both men and women who wish to reduce the areola for aesthetic purposes. For women, the procedure can be done alone or in combination with a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction surgery depending on the patient’s individual requirements. 

Who needs Areola Reduction Surgery?

The areola reduction surgery is recommended for individuals with:

  • Areola which are too big for their liking
  • Different size of areola on both sides
  • Protruding or puffy areola
  • Change in the size of areola because of weight reduction or gain
  • Change in the size of areola after pregnancy

Areola Reduction Surgical Method


During the procedure, the surgeon will remove a small piece of tissue from the areola in a doughnut shape. 


The circular incision is usually made along the boundary of the existing areola so that the scars could be hidden neatly along the edges and is less visible when it heals. 


Permanent suture is used deep inside the breast tissue for securing the new areola. That will help to prevent the areola from stretching out.
