It is not only the size and shape of the breast that concerns women. The shape and size of the nipple can also impact the form and function of the breast. Many women are unhappy with the size of their nipples or areolas, usually when they are larger than they would prefer. Nipple reduction surgery can be performed as a standalone procedure or with other cosmetic breast surgeries that are available at Blaine Plastic Surgery. We have locations in NYC, Staten Island and Huntington, NY.
Nipple and areola size are a matter of personal preference. There is not a “standard” size, as breasts and nipples come in all shapes and sizes that are beautiful. However, some women have discomfort from larger nipples, or they may have functional issues when breastfeeding. Nipple plastic surgery can address larger, puffy, overextended or inverted nipples that are causing pain, function or cosmetic issues for the patient.
Areola Reduction and Cosmetic Nipple Surgery
Every woman deserves to feel comfortable with her breasts. If changing the size or shape of the nipple or areola will improve your comfort or confidence, plastic surgery is an option. Dr. Christine Blaine is a board certified plastic surgeon who has many years of experience in enhancing, reshaping and reconstructing the breasts, including the nipple and areola.
Nipple or areola alterations can be an “add-on” procedure during a breast augmentation, reduction or lift surgery. A slight change in the size or shape can make a significant difference in the appearance.
If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nipples, there are options through plastic surgery to create the appearance you desire.
