Areola Reduction and Inverted Nipple Correction

The breast tissue undergoes physiological changes when the levels of estrogen, progesterone, and prolactin fluctuate throughout pregnancy. Increased blood flow and expansion of milk ducts occur. During breastfeeding, your may get inverted nipples, and your areolae may expand. Whatever the cause is, inverted nipples and large areola spoil the overall look of breasts.

Female areola, a small brown circle or diameter around the nipple, is normally not bothersome to women, but in some situations, this diameter expands. Large areola Pan Cake Shape is not preferred by any woman. And even though expanded areola may not affect a woman physically, it adversely affects them physiologically.

Areola Reduction

Find out how it is done by the best cosmetic surgeon in Dubai- Dr. Martian Loonenen, what it is like to recover, and more.

When to get Areola reduction?

Areolas are Puffy

Breast tissue often pushes the Areola forward, resulting in a puffy areola. As a hereditary disorder, tuberous breasts have narrowing bases and prominent inframammary folds or breast creases on the chest wall, creating an extended tubular appearance to the breast. With or without a breast lift or reduction, areola reduction surgery can be used to correct enlarged areolas.

Areolas are asymmetrical

Occasionally, one of the areolae will be larger than the other, in which case Dr. Martain may reshape it to match the smaller one and restore the areolae’s symmetry.

Areolas are not circular.

Areolas typically have a circular border; however, sometimes, they are an oval or an unusual shape. It is possible to undertake areola surgery in order to give them a round appearance.

Candidates for Areola Reduction in Dubai

Anyone who is dissatisfied with the size of their areolas has the option of undergoing an areola reduction procedure. If you have dropped a substantial amount of weight and have stretched areolas, this surgery is ideal. If your areolas have changed after pregnancy or breastfeeding, this treatment works well. People who have swollen or bulging areolas are also good candidates.

When one Areola is too large compared to the other, some people opt to have it reduced in size. Areola reduction surgery should not be performed on female patients until their breasts have finished growing, which is often in their late teens or early twenties for most women.

Getting ready for your surgery

Before your surgery, you should quit smoking. Patients can avoid subsequent problems by maintaining a healthy weight. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly can also be beneficial. There should be no shaving or waxing in the week coming up to the procedure on any parts of the body that will be cut. It is a good idea to take a shower or bath on the day of the surgery.

Areola Reduction Procedure

In most cases, local anesthesia is used for areola reduction, which is completed in one hour. Sometimes, general anesthesia is needed. Areola reduction surgery is performed by reducing a circular part of the Areola’s outer brown area; the skin around the Areola is then pulled inwards like a purse string. The size of the areola is reduced by inserting absorbable sutures. You may need to wear a special bra to keep your breasts in place while they are recovering from the wound. If you have undergone general anesthesia, you may feel groggy right afterward. We will provide you with painkillers to help ease the discomfort of your surgical wounds. On the day of surgery, you should be able to go home.

Areola reduction Recovery

Areola reduction surgery results in a quick recovery period for the patient. In most cases, you can return to work within a few days, if not sooner. You might hear from your doctor that:

• The first several weeks after surgery are likely to be the most painful
• Wear a surgical bra for the first few weeks after surgery
• Refrain from intercourse and refrain from direct chest contact for the first few weeks
• Avoid hard lifting or vigorous aerobics for the first several weeks.

For your safety, you will need a ride home. Wearing a bra and returning to normal activities should be done in accordance with the advice of your surgeon. For the first few weeks following your treatment, you will need to sleep on your back. If you are worried about anything, talk to your consultant about it. People who have undergone areola reduction surgery feel some discomfort following the procedure. An over-the counter painkiller like Paracetamol usually works well to alleviate the symptoms. After a few days, discomfort normally subsides.

Returning to work and social activities should take no more than a week. Swelling and numbness are possible side effects of surgery. It may take up to six weeks for these symptoms to completely go away. Areola reduction is a safe and effective operation for most people, and the benefits are long lasting.
