About Nipple / Areola Surgery:

  • Nipple or areola surgery can either be performed as part of a breast reconstruction or to cosmetically alter the shape or size.
  • The creation of the nipple and areola is the final component in breast reconstruction surgery.
  • There are various surgeries available to reconstruct nipples; these include reducing the length of the nipple, the width of them, the volume, and reconstruction.
  • Sometimes nipple (areola) reconstruction can be carried out on its own with local anesthesia or in combination with other breast reconstructions procedures.
  • Reconstruction of the nipple(s) makes the breast look complete and natural after breast reconstruction surgery – this procedure can be carried out at the same time as your breast reconstruction surgery.
  • There is little pain involved in nipple surgery and the recovery period is quite fast.
