Nipple Reduction

Disproportionately large areolae can give your breasts an unbalanced appearance. Invivo Aesthetics performs a procedure that reduces their size for better aesthetic balance

The nipples and dark area surrounding them, known as the areolae, are primary features of your breasts. After all, can you imagine what your chest would like without either? They wouldn't be complete breasts. The size and shape of your nipples and areolae contribute greatly to the overall appearance of your breasts. That's why you aren't happy with how you look.

Your nipples and areolae play a large part in the aesthetic appearance of your breasts. Just like every other unique part of your body, nipples vary in size, shape and color. It is absolutely normal for you to have different sized nipples than you see on other women. In some cases, the size and shape of the nipples and areolas can have a negative impact on self-esteem. If you have overly large nipples and would like to reduce their size,

Dr Gunasekar Vuppalapati is the ideal plastic surgeon to complete your procedure

Your areolae and nipples can be reduced in size and/or modified to improve their shape so they appear more balanced. If asymmetry exists, it's fine to have just one side treated to balance things out.

According to medical research, an adult female has areolae with the average diameter of approximately 38.1 mm. However, that doesn't mean we create this size on all of our patients. We take into account your natural breast size/shape, your preferred look and what improvement would achieve the most proportionate result.


Bra Size Measurement


Measure completely around the bust at the fullest point. Hold the tape tight against the back but not too tight in the front. 


Using a soft tape, measure around the rib cage directly under the bust. The tape should be held tight, edge to edge with no space between it and your body.

Frequently asked questions

Nipple reduction surgery reduces the projection (sticking out) of the nipple. The procedure can also decrease the circumference of the nipple as well.

Nipple reductions are usually performed in conjunction with breast augmentation or breast lift, but it can be performed alone.

There are two techniques used in nipple reductions: the wedge technique and the flap technique. The wedge involves cutting a wedge-shaped piece out of the nipple and attaching the sides together. The flap technique involves making an incision around the base of the nipple at the desired projection level, leaving a small portion attached. The excess tissue is removed and the flap is turned down to create a smaller nipple.

The technique that Invivo Aesthetics uses for your procedure will depend on your anatomy. You will discuss the techniques and which one is right for you during your initial consultation.

Nipple reduction surgery is fairly straightforward but patients should be healthy with no health concerns. Patients with nipple piercings should know that those piercings may have to be redone after they have healed from the reduction.
