Areola size reduction is performed together with breast reduction surgery to achieve a proportionately sized breast and areola. In cases where the areola may be disproportionately large, areola reduction can be performed without altering the size of the breast itself.
Nipple size can also be disproportionately large compared to the areola and the rest of the breast. This may be developmental or may happen after pregnancy and breast feeding, which results in a ‘droopy’ nipple.
To treat this, Dr Sng performs nipple reduction surgery for those looking to reduce the size of their nipples. However, this may interfere with breastfeeding and should only be performed if you are no longer intending to have any more children.
Some ladies are born with a retracted or ‘pulled-in’ nipple, even though the rest of the breast is normal. The severity of this condition is variable and the nipple can be everted through surgery.
With Dr Sng’s passion and commitment, we strive to provide patients with a highly personalized, transparent, effective and comfortable experience from the first time you step in our clinic to full recovery.
