areola correction

This surgery can correct the appearance and shape of the nipple and/or areola, depending on the desire of each individual. If the nipple is too big,/long, or inverted, it can be reshaped into the ideal shape and size. In addition, large areolae can be made smaller to achieve a more satisfying appearance.

How is Nipple/Areola Surgery performed?

  • a. Long / Large nipples
    Excess nipple tissue is removed and reshaped into the ideal shape and size. This procedure is very simple and takes about half an hour. The scars are less noticeable due to the original irregular texture of the nipples.

  • b. Inverted nipples
    There are 2 methods to correct inverted nipples. One method preserves the milk ducts for those who wish to breastfeed. If the cause of the inverted nipple is due to the main milk duct itself, then preserving the duct could reverse the effects of the procedure. The second method does not preserve the milk ducts, allowing for more projection and visible nipple. At JK, we recommend doing the 1st method unless the inversion is very severe, or the patient does not wish to breastfeed in the future.

  • c. Large areola
    There are 2 methods to reduce the areola, one is from the outside and the other is from the inside. The inside is the area just around the nipple. The outside is the area closest to the breast skin. The inside method results in a more natural look of the areola after surgery; however, there is a limit to the amount of reduction that can be made. The outside method is more common and provides more dramatic and controllable results. The scar is around the new areola so it has low visibility.
