What is an Areola Reduction?

Areola reduction is a surgical procedure that decreases the size of the areolas as well as provides a small lift to the breasts. Areola reduction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures at Cox Cosmetic Surgery. Areola reduction can truly be life-changing for women who suffer from the insecurities that can accompany enlarged areolas which can be naturally occurring (genetics), pregnancy related or a complication of a previous breast surgery. These large areolas often limit a women’s ability to be confident sexually or even to feel comfortable in swimsuits or other summer outfits.

Areola reduction often involves a scar around the areola only. Over time, these scars fade and the team at Cox Cosmetic Surgery will provide multiple techniques to help improve the appearance of scars.

At Cox Cosmetic Surgery, areola reduction is performed under general anesthesia in a surgery center and as an outpatient plastic surgery procedure, meaning our plastic surgery patients can go home the same day.
