Are your areolas excessively large?  The areola is the pigmented circle of skin that the nipple is centered on.  An average sized areola is about 1.5 inches (4 centimeters) in diameter – about the size of the cap on a 20 oz. Gatorade bottle.  Larger areolas can look disproportionately dominant on the breast.  An areola reduction procedure will create a more pleasing, balanced look.

Areola Reduction Consultation

Before choosing from your options for areola reduction surgery, you will have a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Back, who has earned a reputation as one of the best cosmetic surgeons in the South Jersey and Philadelphia areas.  After an examination, he will review with you everything you want and need to know, and together you will discuss your goals and his recommendations.  All the details of the procedure will be reviewed, and you will also have ample time for questions.  “Before & After” photos of our previous patients’ results are available to help new patients visualize the options available to them.

Areola Reduction Procedure

An areola reduction can be, and often is, combined with other procedures (such as a breast lift or a breast reduction).  An areola reduction can be performed as an in-office procedure and usually takes about one hour to complete.  All incisions are hidden within the new areola.

Areola Reduction Recovery

Some swelling and bruising is expected and can last about a week.  Pain is usually minimal.  The scars are typically very hard to see or find.  No changes in sensation are expected.
