Men and women may opt to undergo areola reshaping in one of several variations such as a reduction or correction, depending upon each individual’s unique anatomy and aesthetic desires. Women commonly undergo areola reshaping, specifically areola reduction surgery, to diminish the puffy or swollen look of the nipples after pregnancy. Men may choose to undergo areola reshaping to correct malformations or other issues associated with the shape / size / position of the areolae. Our board certified plastic surgeons at the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC are experts in breast surgery and aim to create dramatic, natural-looking results that reflect the desires of each patient.
Each areola reshaping procedure with the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC is customized to actualize each patient’s post-procedural goals. The procedure consists of creating a periareolar incision around each areola, then removing the excess skin. The incision is closed with dissolving stitches and scarring is virtually non-existent due to optimal incision placement. Changes in the position or size of the areolae may occur later in life as a result of rapid weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Individuals may opt to undergo an areola reshaping procedure with the top rated team at the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC to correct inverted nipples or enlarged nipples acquired through genetics. Whether for cosmetic or functional reasons, our top tier New York based plastic surgery team can help you actualize your ideal chest contour.
A person may want to change the size or position of their areolae for issues such as:
- Enlarged Areola
- Inverted Nipples
- Irregularly-shaped Nipples
- Puffy / Swollen-appearing Nipples
An areola reduction consists of the plastic surgeon creating a periareolar incision on the bottom half of the areolae, followed by the removal of excess nipple tissue and application of dissolving stitches. This procedure is employed upon men and women to shrink the size of the nipple in order to align it with the patient’s desired chest aesthetic.
During areola repositioning surgery, your best in class New York board certified plastic surgeon creates an incision around the areola and the areola is moved / reshaped to a different position. This procedure is commonly employed upon individuals with irregularly shaped nipples inherited through genetics.
During your initial areola reshaping consultation, you will discuss your post-procedural goals with the plastic surgeon. He will explain your procedural options for areola reshaping and will break down each step of your chosen procedure. Areola reshaping is a highly customizable procedure and each patient works with the plastic surgeon to achieve their dream chest. Areola reshaping surgery is commonly performed in conjunction with a breast reduction, breast lift, breast augmentation, or FTM / MTF Top Surgery.
Your areola reshaping procedure takes place at the Breast Reconstruction Center of NYC’s private surgical suite located in Manhattan, New York.
