Nipple & 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.
