What Is Nipple Reduction / Areola Correction?

Many patients are content with the shape and size of their breasts, but genetics may have left them with other concerns. The truth is, concern over nipple shape or size can affect not only how patients feel about their breasts, but their overall appearance. This procedure aims to help patients who want to address nipple or areola concerns caused by age, genetics, or other factors like pregnancy.

The procedure can address a variety of concerns that include shape, size, and position of one or both nipples. Many patients use this procedure to achieve a smaller, perkier look to their nipples that balances well with their breast shape and size. Patients may also have the procedure on a single nipple to correct for asymmetry. The possibilities are nearly endless and allow patients to fully match their breasts to their ideal aesthetic.

Additionally, Dr. Brown can provide nipple reconstruction and 3D nipple tattooing. These are ideal for patients who have experienced either a mastectomy or breast trauma.

Combining Breast Procedures

While nipple correction can be ideal on its own, many patients take this opportunity to combine it with other procedures. Most commonly, it is combined with either a breast lift or breast augmentation. By addressing concerns with both the breast and the nipple, patients can see impressive and transformative results with a single operation. You can also combine nipple procedures with either a breast reduction or reconstruction. Dr. Brown can provide you with complete information on all your options during your one-on-one consultation.

Is Nipple Reduction / Areola Correction Right for Me?

If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of one or both nipples, then one of these procedures could be for you. An ideal candidate will be in good health and be non-smoking, ensuring better recovery and healing. You can start by scheduling your consultation at SynergyMD with Dr. Brown. You can fully discuss your goals with him and he will work with you to build your ideal nipple correction surgery to match your needs, goals, and ideals.

What Is the Recovery Like?

Nipple reduction and areola correction can both range significantly in the recovery period. For patients who want only minor corrections, there can be very little downtime, if any. For patients who have a more involved surgery, they can expect a longer recovery period. Lastly, patients who have nipple reduction as part of another breast procedure can expect one to two months of recovery.

Generally, you will be able to return home the same day, regardless of your procedure plan. Dr. Brown will provide you with complete instructions for your recovery based on your individual procedure. Generally, recovery involves avoiding strenuous activities and getting plenty of rest. These are the two key factors in having a quick and safe recovery while also optimizing your final results.

During your consultation, Dr. Brown can let you know what to expect based on your personalized plan. Likewise, if you can any questions after your procedure, we will gladly help in any way we can.

When Can I See Results?

Nipple reduction immediately changes the size of your nipple, but it can take time to see your final results. The good news is that nipple surgery results are generally permanent! Once all the swelling has gone down, you can see your final nipple reduction results and continue to enjoy them for years to come. If you combined this with other breast procedures, your final results can vary in how long it takes for them to appear. For example, final breast augmentation results will appear once your implants have fully settled. In every case, following post-procedure instructions is important for seeing ideal results.
