What many people think of as the nipple is actually comprised of two parts: The nipple, which is the part in the middle that protudes, and the areola, which is the flat darkened skin that surrounds the actual nipple. A woman might have larger areolas than average due to genetics, breastfeeding, or drastic weight changes. Although large areolas don't have any health or medical effects, it can be an aesthetic concern that may affect a woman's self-image. If a woman is not happy with the size of her areolas, an areola reduction may help her be more satisfied with her body.

Qunomedical can help you find a great surgeon for areola reduction overseas, so you can get a high-quality surgery for less. However, there are multiple types of operations that can reduce areola size. The first is a stand-alone areola reduction procedure, which can cost as little as $1,500.

How Does Areola Reduction Surgery Work?

Your surgeon will reduce the size of the areola either by an incision around the base of the nipple or around the outside of the areola. If your areolas are especially large, the incision may even be lollipop-shaped. This is a simple surgery that can take less than an hour, with the patient returning to normal activities in just a couple of days. The nipples stay just as sensitive as they were before, and the woman's ability to breastfeed is not affected.

Another way to reduce the size of your areola is to get a Benelli lift, or a donut mastopexy. This is a type of breast lift that, because an incision is made around the outside of the nipple, can simultaneously lift the breast and reduce areola size. This is a great option for women with large areolas whose breasts are also sagging. Sagging of breasts can be due to aging, genetics, large changes in body weight, breastfeeding, and other factors. This is a great two-in-one operation for women with both of these aesthetic issues. However, since a breast lift is a much more invasive and complicated surgery than a simple areola reduction, recovery will take longer.
