About Areola Reduction Procedure
An areola reduction procedure is one of the most common ways to address the pigmented areas surrounding your nipples. The areolas vary in shape, color, and size, and so over time, many people experience problems with breast appearance for a variety of reasons. Dissatisfaction with the way your breasts look is common and so areola reduction is a simple way to balance the look of large areolas.
It is common for both men and women to enjoy the results of an areola reduction procedure. However, for women, the results can be further improved by coupling procedures, for example, a breast lift and areola reduction commonly address the problematic issue of ample breasts sagging with age.
How to Prepare for Areola Reduction Procedure
You can prepare for areola reduction naturally at home by simply adjusting your everyday regimen. The night before your areola reduction surgery, you may have specific instructions on what to eat and drink. You may also need to have a mammogram (breast X-ray) before surgery if you are over the age of 45.
What to Expect From Areola Reduction Procedure
After an areola reduction procedure, the area will be wrapped in an elastic bandage and you may need to wear a special surgical bra designed to protect the gauze. For the first few days after the procedure, you may notice the pain. However, after a day or two, the bandages are removed. Then, you can usually wear a sports bra and return to your everyday routine.
