The areola and nipple are an important part of the aesthetics of the breasts. When the areola or nipple is larger, the aesthetic balance of the breast can be impacted. Longer or thicker nipples can be very noticeable, which some individuals may not prefer. If you are self-conscious about the size of your nipples or areolas, plastic surgery can be a solution. Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery offers areola and nipple reduction surgery at our facility in Beverly Hills, CA.
Nipple size can be distressing to some individuals. While size is a matter of preference, larger nipples can be embarrassing to some women. Some women have larger nipples from the time their breasts develop at puberty, while others experience nipple hypertrophy due to hormonal changes, pregnancy or trauma. The diameter and height of the nipple may increase to the point where it is noticeable, even through clothing. Some women also experience larger areolas that encompass more of the breast than they desire.
Balancing Nipple or Areola Size
Plastic surgery can reduce the size of the nipples or areolas. This can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in tandem with a breast lift, reduction or augmentation surgery. Dr. Chaudhry is a top cosmetic breast surgeon that will listen to your aesthetic concerns and discuss the best options to achieve the breast appearance you desire. During the procedure, nipple or areola tissue can be carefully removed to create the desired size and shape for a balanced appearance.
Changing the size of the nipple can alter the function for breastfeeding. It is usually recommended to wait until you are through with breastfeeding possibilities before undergoing nipple reduction surgery. Dr. Chaudhry will discuss how your procedure will impact your breast function and recommend the right solution for your circumstance.
