Areola Procedures

Your breasts affect how you feel, so perfecting their appearance with areola procedures (nipple procedures), is an easy way to improve your self confidence. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S. has experience creating the perfect nipple for his patients. 

What are Areola Procedures (Nipple Procedures)?

Do you want a cuter nipple or a smaller areola?

There are many reasons patients seek out nipple/areolar complex (NAC) procedures. Some are looking for a nipple reduction because they are dissatisfied with the size of their nipples. Others may want a reconstruction, like in the case of a surgically absent nipple areola complex following breast cancer surgery. Sometimes a large areola is seen with larger breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or even nipple piercings. A Nipple/areola reduction may also be performed as part of Female-to-Male breast contouring surgery, or to correct puffy nipples.

At Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute, each patient receives the detailed attention and surgical expertise required to tailor an optimal procedure to meet their goals.

Benefits of Areola Procedures (Nipple Procedures)

Scientific studies have proven that a sexy, youthful, feminine areola has a certain appeal across all cultures.

  • Reduction

While typically performed in conjunction with a breast reduction, a nipple, and/or areola reduction may be part of an advanced combination breast surgery or as an individual procedure during a dedicated office visit. There are several techniques that may be used to perform the procedure, as the procedure will reflect your specific concerns.

  • Reconstruction

For cancer patients, depending on the cancer profile, it is very possible to preserve your nipple/areolar complex during a mastectomy. For individuals that are unable to undergo a nipple-sparing mastectomy, reconstruction is an excellent option if you decide this is an important component of your restorative breast surgery. Both the projection and pigment can be reconstructed using a combination of surgery along with skilled application of the tattoo.

  • Staged NAC Procedures

A reconstructive breast expert, Dr. Schwartz began his career at Georgetown University Hospital focusing on breast reconstruction for cancer patients. He is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals without compromising your safety. Dr. Schwartz may recommend staging your nipple/areola procedure, especially if you have undergone several previous breast surgeries or are considering an NAC procedure as part of a comprehensive breast reconstruction.

What Is the Areola Procedure (Nipple Procedure)?

Under local anesthesia, an areola reduction in projection or a reduction in diameter is performed using dissolvable sutures or sutures that are removed a week later. Areola procedures can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or as part of the breast augmentation surgery. Recovery is convenient with minimal downtime, and you can return right away to work or play. Dr. Schwartz always makes sure that he gives you the best results possible and will discuss his commitment to safety during your consultation, at which point you can get answers to any questions that you may have about your areola procedure.
