Nipple and Areola Surgery

A beautiful, aesthetically pleasing breast appearance is often a sought-after goal for women. Patients may elect to have breast augmentation procedures to obtain their desired appearance. In the journey to perfect breasts, some patients may choose to alter their nipple and areola size with specialized procedures. At Linville Plastic Surgery, Dr. Linville aims to address all patient questions and concerns in preparation for their nipple and areola procedures.

Candidates for Nipple and Areola Procedures May Have:

  • Asymmetrical nipples
  • Enlarged or puffy areolas
  • Enlarged nipples
  • Inverted nipples

Patients will be able to discuss all questions, concerns and ideal goals with Dr. Linville during the initial consultation. He will then assess the patient’s concerns and suggest ideal procedures. Nipple and areola procedures can be combined for the perfect breast transformation or can be done separately for a more natural appearance. Dr. Linville will discuss the specific procedure (or procedures) along with recovery details with each patient.

Top Nipple and Areola Procedures

  • Nipple Reduction
  • Inverted Nipple Correction
  • Areola Reduction

Nipple Reduction

If you have droopy, enlarged, or asymmetrical nipples, nipple reduction surgery can help. A small incision will be made to remove extra tissue and immediately decrease the nipple size and shape.

Inverted Nipple Correction

The inverted nipple correction procedure can bring the nipple back to the surface of the breast. Tissue is slightly lifted from the nipple and areola to create the new desired shape with perky attributes.

Areola Reduction

An enlarged or widened areola is another common discontent with patients. This problem can be easily fixed with a small incision and a skin tightening method.

Benefits of Nipple and Areola Procedures

  • Improved overall breast symmetry
  • Corrects all nipple or areola problems
  • Gained confidence
  • Little to no scarring
  • Beautiful, natural looking breasts
