Areolar Reduction Surgery

Your complete guide and quick links to everything you want to know about Areolar Reduction Surgery in Sydney! ​

A well-developed and normal-sized nipple/areola complex not only adds sensuality to a breast, it is also an essential functional requirement for any future breastfeeding.

As a result of the relaxation of social norms and the increasing uncovering of the breast in magazines, fashion, photographic shoots and social media, there has been an increasing trend worldwide for corrective nipple & areolar surgery.

Areola Reduction Surgery is performed in a Licensed Hospital under General Anaesthesia administered by our Specialist Anaesthetist.

Enlarged Areola Reduction

The areola is the pigmented circle around the nipple. Large areolas can be inherited or may develop as a result of an increase in breast size through pregnancy or weight gain. If you’re uncomfortable with the size of your areolas, they can be reduced. 

Areola Reduction Surgery is a procedure that will reduce the diameter of one or both areolas. It can be performed on its own, or as part of a Breast Lift, Breast Reduction or Breast Augmentation.

Hospital stay is not necessary and you can go home shortly after your procedure. However, you cannot go home alone. You must be accompanied by a responsible adult who can also be with you for the first 24 hours.

Potential risks include bleeding, wound infection, numbness (usually only temporary), and adverse scarring if you are prone to such.
