Areolas are the pigmented areas that surround your nipples. Like breasts, areolas vary broadly in size, shape, and color. It’s absolutely normal to have large or distinctively sized areolas. However, if you’re not comfortable with the size of your areolas, a reduction is possible to improve the overall appearance. Areola reduction is a relatively simple surgical procedure performed to reduce the diameter of either of your areolas. A revision of previous scars, inverted nipples or nipple reductions, are also often requested interventions.
