Areola Reduction – What is an areola reduction procedure?

In this edition of our Areola Reduction FAQ series we cover the basics of the surgery, basically what it is and what it involves.
The areola, is the circular brown area that surrounds your nipple. Areola Reduction simply reduces the size of your areola, or can even it up. Areolas vary in size and it is not uncommon for them to be abnormally big, which cause people to require a reduction. We think the average size is around 4.5cm, which is a decent size, so this is what we aim for usually during surgery, unless you have specified otherwise. Also we may alter that measurement, based on the size of your breasts, and general frame.
