Minor Breast Procedure FAQ’s
Can A Breast Lift Reduce Large Areolae?
A breast lift will reduce large areolae. Stretched or enlarged areolae often result from breastfeeding and pregnancy. During a breast lift procedure, areolas may be reduced in size and lifted while also repositioning breast tissue to reduce tension on the wound closure. Areolar reduction if performed alone carries a high risk of recurrence given greater skin tension. Permanent stitches may be placed to lower the risk of recurrent stretching. If you are considering breast lift or areolar reduction surgery, it is generally recommended to defer surgery until you have completed pregnancies and breastfeeding to lower risk of recurrence. Each patient is unique and should be assessed by a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine the best timing and approach.
