Nipple and Areola
Inverted nipple: this condition is usually congenital. It can make breastfeeding difficult and often cause discomfort in patients. It is caused by the abnormal development of milk ducts, which were not “pushed” out of the areola. This abnormality can be easily treated with a simple surgery.
Nipple reduction: an overly prominent nipple can have its size reduced in terms of diameter or length. A surgery carried out under local anesthesia can solve the problem.
Areola reduction: an excessively large areola can have its diameter reduced using a procedure carried out under local anesthesia. An incision made around the areola will be practically invisible. This procedure can be carried out alone or with breast reduction or breast lift.
