A Nipple Reduction is a surgical procedure developed to improve the size, shape or projection of the nipple, whereas an Areola Reduction is a procedure performed to reduce the size of the areola, usually making it more circular in the process. Begin your journey to a new you when you request your consultation online or by telephone.

Nipple Reduction

Nipple Reduction surgery is performed by making small incision on the nipple as unnoticeable as possible. Excess tissue is then removed, and the skin sutured, to create the patient's desired look.

Nipple Reduction can:

  • Reshape or reduce the size of the nipple
  • Improve the overall appearance of the nipple and breast
  • Enhance your confidence and self-esteem

Areola Reduction

Areola Reduction surgery is performed by making an appropriately sized circular incision around the nipple. Excess areola skin is then removed, and the outer and inner circles are closed, to create the patient's desired look.

Areola Reduction can:

  • Reduce the size of the areola
  • Proportionally balance your areola with the rest of the breast
  • Enhance your confidence and self-esteem
