If an imbalance in the size between your areolas or nipples exist, nipple and areola reduction surgery may be a great option to restore a pleasing aesthetic. A nipple or areola reduction can help to reduce nipple and/or areola size (also known as hypertrophy) or length. This procedure can also help to balance any asymmetry between the nipples or areolas.
Procedure and recovery time can vary depending on if your nipple or areola reduction surgery is done by itself or as part of other breast augmentation procedures. The procedure is typically an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia.
You may return to work or your daily routine within a few days after surgery but will need to avoid strenuous exercise for at least a week or two.
