Methods of areola correction

  1. Circumferential correction is used in order to reduce the size of the areola, two circumferential incisions are made in this case. One incision – along with the contour of the areola, the second incision – closer to the nipple. Excess tissue is removed, the remaining part of the areola is stitched to non-pigmented tissues.
  2. In case of sector or partial correction (resection), a triangular piece of the areola is removed and the incision edges are stitched.
  3. During breast lift or breast reduction surgeries, the nipple-areola complex is shifted upwards and excess tissues are removed at this time.
