Nipple and Areola Surgery in Winnipeg, MB

Concerns about nipple length and/or areolar size are more common than you think and can affect men just as much as women.

Inverted nipples affect 10 to 20% of women. Inverted nipples occur when the milk ducts leading to the nipple are too short or overly tight. This causes the nipple to be pulled into the areola – the dark skin around the nipple – giving it a flat or depressed appearance. Some nipples can be slightly inverted, and others can be severely inverted.

Elongated nipples are also more common than you may think and affect a wide range of women with small and large breasts. Length of the nipple can often get worse after breast feeding. Areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) size is a matter of personal preference. Men generally have smaller areolas when compared to women; however, both sexes can be affected by a large sized areola. Areolar size can change over time after breast feeding generally getting larger.

If your nipples or areolar size are making you feel self‐conscious or uncomfortable, nipple correction or areolar reduction may be the answer. Nipple Correction or Areolar Reduction is a simple and effective procedure that has helped thousands of people change their lives.

Nipple Correction or Areola reduction is typically performed under local anesthesia within one hour.

Two Types Of Nipple Correction Surgery

You have different types of Nipple Correction procedures to choose from:

Inverted Nipple Correction

This procedure is a minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Avi Islur will start by making a small 1-1.5 cm incision just under the nipple. The ducts causing the inversion of the nipple will be cut and sutures will be placed to prevent the ducts from scarring back together.  This procedure is performed under local anesthetic and will take approximately 30 minutes.

Nipple Reduction

This procedure is a minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Avi Islur will start by reducing the length of the actual nipple to make your nipple more proportionate to your breast. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic and will take approximately 30 minutes.

Areola Reduction

Dr. Islur will start by using a nipple marker to choose an appropriate areola size that suits your breast. After the appropriate areola size has been marked, he will remove a circular area of skin. For a beautiful skin tightening effect, Dr. Islur will suture your breast skin to the areola tissue, which is the dark skin around your nipple.

Areola Reduction is performed under local anesthetic within one hour.

Due to the nature of this procedure, the areola itself or the scar may slightly widen over time and may require revision.

What is Recovery Like After Nipple/Areolar Correction Surgery?

As with most aesthetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient, depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s health. After Nipple/Areolar Correction, the nipple region may be sore for 4 to 7 days, and bruising may last 1‐2 weeks. You can return to normal activities almost immediately, avoiding heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for 2 weeks.
