Areola reduction surgery

For each and every individual, the size, and shape of areola, the darker area around the nipple, varies. Moreover, apart from genetic reason, the reasons for changes in areola can be attributed to age, pregnancy, or weight gain. Areola reduction surgery is the perfect solution if one wishes to make corrections to it. If need arises, areola correction surgery can be done along with breast reduction or lift for a perfect appearance with right proportion.


At Skinovate the surgery is performed by our highly experienced surgeon as an outpatient procedure under anesthesia. Incisions are made around areola to remove the excess tissues. Subsequently, stitches are used to close the incisions and gauze dressings are done over the breasts. Surgical bra is generally placed over breasts to aid healing and to hold breasts in correct position. The procedure is quite simple that it just takes around 1 to 2 hours.

After procedure

One can leave the clinic on the same day but it is vital to have a companion to drive you home. Swelling and bruising will disappear within few weeks and pain is usually addressed through pain killers. A follow-up visit may be necessary. Though one can return to their normal activities in a day or two, strenuous activities should not be done for 4 weeks after surgery. All other important post-op instructions provided by the surgeon at Skinovate should be adhered for speedy recovery.


The results from reduction surgery results are permanent but factors like aging should be considered for sagging of breasts.

At Skinovate all our procedures are done by our expert surgeons by using advanced techniques to achieve best results. For any breast care procedure, visit Skinovate to consult with our highly qualified doctors.
