Every breast is different. This isn’t just a statement of size, but also of shape, coloration, texture, firmness, and a whole lot more. One major difference between breasts, at least in visual terms, is the size of the areola, the dark area that immediately surrounds the nipple.
Most women have an areola that is roughly the size of a quarter. However, some women have much larger areolas. This is more common on larger breasts that also have larger nipples, but may also occasionally be found on smaller breasts.
If you are uncomfortable with the aesthetic of your breast specifically because of the large size of your areola, and you live in the Toronto area, areola reduction surgery from Dr. Chivers at the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre is the perfect way to obtain the breasts that you have always wanted.
During the procedure, Dr. Chivers will make a small incision around your areola. Then he will remove excess tissue and skin from the area in order to decrease the size of your areola to a size that you find more aesthetically pleasing. Finally, he will use small stitches to minimize any scarring from the procedure.
Like most surgical procedures that can be performed with local anesthetic, areola reduction surgery results in a rather quick recovery time. Most likely you will be able to drive and return to work the very next day after the surgery. Pain and swelling in your breasts should be minor and easily relieved by painkillers.
You will experience continued tenderness in your nipples for a few weeks and will usually need to wait roughly a month before you can once again engage in strenuous activities. It is recommended during the first two weeks, and possibly longer depending on the tenderness of your nipples, that you wear a soft sports bra, instead of a traditional bra. If you should experience any problems or have any questions during your recovery, the helpful staff of the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre are readily available to provide assistance.
If you live in the Toronto area and you are unhappy with the large size of your areolas, you can get started on changing your looks by scheduling an initial consultation with Dr. Chivers. During that consultation he will give you a thorough examination and explain all of your available surgical options, answering any questions you might have. Once you fully understand the procedure and the expected results, your areola reduction surgery will be schedule right away.
