What is Areola Correction(Nipple Correction)?
The areola is the brown/pink, circular area around the nipple. Many women are happy with the size and shape of the breasts but find their areolas to large or misshapen. An areola reduction is the answer to correct the shape of the areola.
The surgery is conducted under general anesthetic. During the procedure, your surgeon will reshape the areola by removing the excess skin. Absorbable stitches are then used to secure the skin and sometimes deep, permanent stitches are used to prevent stretching of the skin and areola after surgery. The surgery will take place at a specialist private hospitals by a fully registered cosmetic surgeon.

Are the results permanent?
Yes, the results of areola reduction are permanent. If you gain a substantial amount of weight, or you have a baby, your breasts and therefore nipples may change shape, however they will always be smaller/ have a better shape than they would have been if you had not had the surgery.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
We recommend that people take a week off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and intense exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery.
Are there any alternatives to this surgery?
No, the only way to reduce the size, or change the shape of your nipples is by surgery.
Can I combine this procedure with other surgery?
Yes, you can combine this procedure with other breast or body surgeries. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.
Will I have altered sensation in the area?
Whenever skin is cut, nerves are also cut; this may result in altered sensation to the area, particularly at the incision site. All care will be taken to maintain sensation as much as possible.
What weight should I be for surgery?
You should be at a healthy weight for your height when you have surgery as this lowers risks related to anaesthetic. For the best aesthetic results, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight at the time of surgery as further weight loss or gain can change the results of your surgery.
When can I fly after the procedure?
You should check with your surgeon regarding safe timings of air travel following your surgery. Many airlines have their own protocols and you should inform your travel insurance company if you have had recent surgery.
We recommend that in the weeks after surgery, you are close to one of the locations Nu Cosmetic Clinic can refer you to in case you have any concerns, so foreign holidays may be best avoided until a few months after your procedure.
