Understanding Nipple Reduction
If you have a widened or enlarged areola, this may affect your self-confidence. At Ignite Medispa, we are committed to helping people who are dissatisfied with their nipple size or shape. Nipple reduction surgery allows for the reduction in size or shape of the nipple and areola.
Additionally, some individuals have raised or domed areolas which may also be addressed. Furthermore, the colour of your areola can also be a cause of concern for some people. This is also possible to address through nipple reduction surgery and can benefit men and women.
The surgery usually starts with the areolas outer area being removed. Once this is complete, the skin may become closer to the areola through absorbable stiches. Other forms of stiches may also be used to prevent the widening of the areola in future.
3 important things to know about Nipple Reduction
How long is recovery from Nipple Reduction?
Nipple reduction recovery usually takes between 4-6 weeks to full heal. Fortunately, after the first few days, you should be able to resume your daily routine.
Sometimes, we may deem it appropriate to schedule a follow-up appointment to check your recovery and advise how you can help yourself recover.
Why are my nipples getting bigger?

This is normal and may involve your nipples enlarging also. If you are not happy with the size of your nipples after pregnancy, book a consultation with our friendly team and Ignite Medispa to discuss your options.
