Areola Reduction and Inverted Nipple Correction

Dr. Tannan will be scheduling these patients.

 

Areola Reduction

Perhaps you like the size and shape of your breasts, but feel your nipple and areola is disproportionately large or puffy. Areola reduction is almost always a simple procedure that can help to correct this lack of aesthetics.

What is often thought of as “the nipple” is actually made up of the nipple and the areola. The nipple is the projected part. The areola is the dark pigmented skin around the nipple. Areolas can look disproportionately large after a breast reduction or lift, or after childbirth.

The Procedure

Some of the pigmented areola will be removed by making an incision around the outside of the areola. Very large areolas may require a vertical incisions on the breasts to help fully correct. To help minimize scarring, dissolving sutures are used underneath the skin.

The Recovery

Recovery time is minimal. Most patients can return to their normal activities, including work, within a day or two. Visit Tannan Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tannan.

 

Inverted Nipple Correction

If you have “shy” or inverted nipples that you have had from birth, from breast feeding, or from trauma, inverted nipple correction is a simple procedure that can assist in repairing the nipple projection

The Procedure

A small incision is created at the base of the nipple, then gently spread the fibers parallel to the milk ducts. Once the fibers are spread, and the nipple is in an outward, normal position, special sutures are placed inside the nipple to help add reinforcement, and assist in allowing the nipple retain its projected position.

The Recovery

Recovery is relatively simple. Most patients can return to usual activities, including work, in a few days. Visit Tannan Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tannan.
