The normal areolae are 3 to 5 cm in diameter. If longer than that, it is over-sized. Lots of women with large areolae are trying to undergo areola reduction surgery to beautify their breasts. The incision of this surgery is so tiny that it even can’t be recognized. You can get perfect and natural breasts with the help of areola reduction surgery.

Areolae usually get enlarged after the delivery or breastfeeding, in most cases accompanied with over-sized breasts or sagging breasts. A man with gynecomastia can also have over-sized areolae. Areola reduction surgery can be done together with breast reduction surgery and gynecomastia surgery.

If over-sized areolae aren’t accompanied with large or sagging breasts, a simple areola skin partial excision can minify them. The procedure goes like this: Taking the nipple as the center, draw a circle (usually 1.5 to 2.5 cm in radius) and roundly remove the areola skin within this range. Keep the derma and subcutaneous blood vessels to provide enough blood to the areolae. Tissue is removed; a pedicle is left and internal purse string sutures are used to keep the areola from stretching. Sutures are used to close the incisions and the scar eventually fades.

Areolae may be enlarged and pigmented due to breastfeeding. An areola reduction surgery is all you need to change it.
