Nipple And Areola Reduction Surgery Mumbai
Normal-looking breasts are very important to a woman since the time she starts developing breasts. There are few measurements and definitions of normalcy from the aesthetic point of view and when these are crossed, a woman becomes conscious about the appearance of her breasts. A normal areola (the circular pigmented area around the nipple) in an adult female is usually 4 to 4.5 cms in diameter. A normal nipple would be at the center of the areola pointing slightly outwards. You may have large or asymmetric nipples and areolae due to genetics, weight gain, and loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, burns to the chest area, or trauma. You may feel uncomfortable looking at yourself in the mirror or exposing yourself in front of your spouse or partner. As a solution to this, you may connect with our expert Dr Ashish Ghughe, for breast reduction in Mumbai.

WHY YOU MAY WANT REDUCED NIPPLE OR AREOLA SIZE IN THE BREAST?

Reducing the areola as part of breast reduction in Mumbai may help you when:
  • Your areolae are too large and stretched out of your breasts.
  • Your nipples are too large and drooping requiring, breast augmentation.
  • There is an asymmetry between the two sides (In such cases it is fine to get operated on just one side to make it look symmetrical) which possibly the surgery may correct.

PROCEDURE OF AREOLA OR BREAST REDUCTION:

This surgery can be done under local anesthesia as a day-care procedure. Post-surgery, you can be discharged on the same day itself. A cut is made around the nipple or areola as per the requirement. Excess tissue is removed from the nipple in the form of a wedge and from the areola in a circular fashion. After the removal of excess tissue, the cuts are closed with sutures and dressed. The surgery for breast reduction is planned well in time, so that desired results can be achieved from the surgery done by our dr in Mumbai.

RECOVERY OF BREAST AFTER AEROLA BREAST REDUCTION:

As this surgery can be done under local anesthesia, the recovery is very quick. You can be up and about immediately and will be discharged from the hospital in a few hours. You may feel a slight swelling and bruising which will settle with analgesics. The scars of surgery, in this case, are usually camouflaged very well. And you get a soft supple reduced areola after the doctor executes breast reduction surgery in Mumbai.
