Why this procedure?
Throughout our life, factors such as age, weight gain and pregnancy in the case of women, can increase the size of our areolas. There may come a moment when you feel they are simply too large and out of proportion to your breasts, and you’ll find the solution through an areola reduction.
What happens during an areola reduction?
During the areolar reduction surgery, our surgeons make an incision around the border of the existing areola and remove any excess skin, forming a new and smaller areola.
This procedure can be performed in combination with mostly any other breast procedure, such as breast augmentation, breast reduction or breast lift, and a big benefit is that the scar is located under the new areola and will be very small, almost unnoticeable.
The results of the areola reduction procedure are visible immediately and are permanent for most patients.
- Gives the areola a natural size in proportion to the breasts.
- Boosts self-esteem and confidence.

After this procedure, you’ll experience some discomfort, pain and bruising, but the medication prescribed by your surgeon will help you control it. Swelling may also appear, but it’ll go away within days. You’ll probably have to wear a special surgical bra to protect the area and minimize the swelling as well.
In the case of women, this procedure won’t interfere with their ability to breastfeed, since it doesn’t interfere with the nipples or mammary gland.
Don’t forget to follow your surgeon’s instructions and to attend every one of your appointments. We need to work as a team to achieve the ultimate results.
It is important to note that recovery specifications may vary depending on the procedure and the patient; our medical staff will walk you through the details of your recovery process.
When can I resume my normal activities?
You’ll be able to return to your normal activities 1 week after the surgery.
Can I get a tan?
It is very important to avoid long sun exposure for a considerable amount of time after the surgery to prevent pigmentation on the scars. Depending on the procedure, your surgeon will tell you exactly for how long you must avoid this.
Should I consider a specific time of the year to do my procedure?
Depending on the chosen procedure, some recoveries do better on winter, while others do better on the summer time. Ask your surgeon for the option that better suits your case. You should also consider periods of time in which you’ll have time to relax, like the holidays, for example.
