Nipple Reduction Surgery
The nipples and areolas of the breast can be an area of concern for both men and women. Oversized nipples or areolas may make a person self-conscious of their appearance, impacting their confidence levels during intimacy with a partner or in other situations. Dr. John Anastasatos is a top plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic breast surgeries, including nipple and areola alterations. Dr. Anastasatos offers areola and nipple reduction surgery at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
Protruding or oversized nipples can bother some women and men. It is a matter of personal preference, but if the size of the nipples is causing distress, it can be remedied with cosmetic surgery. Nipple reduction surgery can be performed solo as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. A small incision can be made to remove a portion of the nipple tissue, then stitched and allowed to heal. Nipple reduction can also be performed during a breast reduction or lift surgery. However, for women planning to breastfeed, it is not recommended to have nipple reduction surgery until after they are done having children.
Areola Reduction Surgery
Large areolas are another aesthetic concern for both men and women. For women, it can be part of tubular breast deformity or larger areolas may occur with sagging or aging breasts. Female areola reduction surgery is usually performed as part of a breast lift or a reshaping surgery for tubular-shaped breasts, but it can be performed on its own. For men, areola or nipple reduction can be performed alone, or as part of gynecomastia surgery to reduce male breasts.
With both nipple and areola reduction surgeries, it is important to choose a highly experienced plastic surgeon to complete the alterations. Dr. Anastasatos has decades of expertise in breast enhancements, reductions and reconstructions.
