    Areola Reduction Ipswich, Suffolk

    Areola reduction in Ipswich, Suffolk, is an option for anyone wishing to alter the size or shape of their areolas – the pink or brown pigmented area of skin around the nipple.

    What Can I Expect From an Areola Reduction?

    An areola reduction in Ipswich, Suffolk, is usually performed under local anaesthetic and takes around 1 hour, although sometimes general anaesthetic is used. The surgery involves making incisions to remove the outer circle area of your areola. The surrounding skin is then pulled in and closed with stitches to reduce the size of the areola.

    Depending on your desired results, you can have the surgery on its own or alongside other procedures, such as breast augmentation or breast reduction.

    While it’s normal for breasts and areolas to come in all shapes, sizes and colours, we understand people aren’t always comfortable with their appearance. An areola reduction in is a common and successful method for altering the proportions of your breasts and boosting your inner confidence.
