Many people are unhappy with the size of their nipples. Patients may be born with large nipples. For women, it may be something that develops after breastfeeding. Whatever the cause, larger nipples can be reduced through a simple surgical procedure that offers immediate results and minimal risks.
It is important for patients to realise that the nipple and the areola are not the same thing. The nipple is the projected part of the breast, while the areola is the darker pigmented skin that surrounds the nipple. It is not uncommon for patients undergoing nipple reduction to also seek areola reduction in order to achieve their desired results.
It's important to understand that there are two areas of the nipple that can be enlarged: the nipple itself and the pink or brown area surrounding the nipple, known as the areola.
Nipple and areola reconstruction can provide a boost in self-confidence to patients who have inverted or stretched nipples or who lack one or both nipples due to mastectomy (surgical removal of the breast), injury or a congenital defect. It is often the final step in breast reconstruction surgery, where the nipple is created after the breast mound has settled into place. This ensures the new nipple matches the appearance and position of the natural one as closely as possible. Our surgeons at LasaDerm perform nipple reconstruction using one of several techniques, including tissue and cartilage flaps, skin grafts and tattooing.
