Nipple & Areola Reduction

For some patients the concern is more than just their breast sizes and shapes, they also have concerns regarding their nipple and/or areola. Most often following a breast enlargement, a breast lift or a breast reduction, nipple areola reduction and inverted nipple repair are usually combined as an additional procedure. Patients often use the term nipple and areola together because some patients are looking for both an areola reduction as well as a nipple reduction. When performed by Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker as a combination procedure with breast augmentation, our Beverly Hills patients are happy to hear there is a procedure to enhance the nipple/areola. Whether the nipple is inverted, too big or protruding too far, Dr. Kapoorand Dr. Schlenkercan assist you with the correction. Results of your nipple or areola reduction are often permanent and can last a lifetime.

Nipple Areola Reduction Recovery Tips



Clothing Options

Loose clothing is to be worn to give your new breasts the room it needs to heal. You should wear the special bra placed over your breasts at all times for the first few days. A softer sports bra should be worn at all times for the first 2 weeks after your nipple areola reduction procedure. The bra should be worn even while sleeping to help hold your breasts in the correct position. You may remove the bra to shower or bathe but must immediately put it back on after drying off. When your breasts are fully recovered, your breasts including your nipple and areola will have that contoured and natural feel and look that you desired.

Dr. Kapoor was amazing!! I did my research for years before I chose a doctor. I chose him because I felt that he genuinely cared about what I was doing and wasn't trying to sell me on procedures. He gave me great advice about my procedure and made me feel comfortable. I'd recommend him to everyone.
