... I am moderately pleased with the results as I was totally deflated after breastfeeding all 4 of my children. I should however gotten a full lift along with areola reduction, but I honestly didn't know at the time. My areola are the size of teacup saucers! I am NOT kidding! ... (5 replies)
... I have had this done. I have had 3 surgeries on my breasts. Breast implants and 2 lifts. When i had the lifts done i also had my areola's made smaller. This is a fairly easy procedure during a lift, because they have to take your entire nipple off, and replace it! I still have 100% feeling in my nipple's. I was very worried that i would lose sensation, but i didnt! Im... (2 replies)

Areola reduction?
Aug 28, 2001
... Hi, I have always had large areolas and was wondering if anyone has had theirs reduced in size without going through a breast reduction, lift, etc. I am a 40D and have always been happy with size, but not my big pink bullseyes! LOL! Anyway, any info on cost, recovery, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! (3 replies)
... Question, do you have alot of breast tissue but sag? Is the D size with the implants? May I suggest you see a few surgeons for a consultation? Implants don't last forever but if you only need a lift you won't need surgery again. As a girlfriend said to her surgeon "just get them high and tight" I was really small prior to implants and having children didn't change anything. ... (5 replies)
... 40-50? We had a large group in one. Not all of them needed their nipples redone. I will guess about between 12-15. Every woman had lifts except for one after she had her implants removed and she didn't look good as her skin was just hanging. What was amazing is that many of the women never even needed implants they had alot of breast tissue but sagged from age and kids.... (5 replies)
... Mel, quite interesting, thank you! How many women are we talking here....5, 10, 50? If it was alot of women, this gives me encouragment. Thanks again! (5 replies)
... Hi I didn't personally but no one answered you. I had a lift after I had implants removed. However, back in the early 90's, I helped run two support groups for women who had implants. We all shared our experiences and did "show and tell" after surgery. Every woman was delighted with the results. Many had their nipples reduced in size. It took awhile for the scar to fade...

... If so, are you pleased with the results? How much were they reduced? Most importantly, do you still have sensation? TIA! (5 replies)
... to heal. There is alot of cutting involved...........so there are quite a few scars. That is the downfall of a lift or reduction. I have a friend who had a reduction and she has the same scars as me. Around the areola.............they usually take your nipple off and replace it............ ... (9 replies)
... Thanks Daisy! So you basically had your areolas cut twice? And you regained full sensation? Thats great! How much smaller did the surgery make them? If you had to guess, how many centimeters across were they, and what are they now? And one more ?....how much did this cost? Sorry for being so nosy....it's just that I seldom hear this talked about and it's very much a... (2 replies)
... snwbrdr_mom- I too had a breast reduction done not to long ago actually x-mas will make it 5 months post-op. I did not have the procedure done with the anchor technique. I have what you would call the lollipop....I only have the scars just at the breast crease and then around my areola/nipple area. It's really nice because they have started to fade... (6 replies)
... hi, i'm wondering how i should go about finding a good cosmetic surgeon. i think the procedure i want is somewhat rare (areola reduction) so i'm worried about finding someone who is experienced in it. any suggestions? (2 replies)
... y similar surgeries...............if they do the anchor lift. The incision under the breast............around the areola........and the incision going down from areola to under the breast. This surgery can leave pretty bad scars if you are fair skinned...........but you trade one for the other. ... (12 replies)
... I am having surgery in the end of July and am going from a G Cup to a C Cup.... I am having the cut underneath and around the areola but don't believe they are doing the liposuction way. I am sure your breast well sag eventually but not at first... ... (12 replies)
... I was wondering if anyone has had a breast reduction particularly one without the vertical incision....Just around the areola and underneath horizontally. I've consulted with a PS and he told me about this method he would do on me. Any thoughts about that? ... (0 replies)
... I'm glad that you're learning from my experience and don't mind me going into a lot of detail. I know I would want detail, so that's what I'm doing for you. As to your question about my going home an hour after I woke up, yes, I really did, but that probably was an earlier time than most, I'm guessing. Maybe I was just lucky, I don't know. I imagine that all plastic... (8 replies)
... I had one done the beginning of July, which has been almost half a year ago. I'm really happy with the results except for just a couple of things. My nipples weren't real pronounced before the surgery, but now they are really sunken in, especially my right one. Also, both of my nipples (well, I guess you'd say areola actually) are puffed out, giving my breasts more of a... (0 replies)
Breast reduction
Sep 3, 2004
... I don't know if you have your surgery yet but I would say do lots of research and if you don't feel right about the surgeon then run fast! I had a reduction 2 years ago and I did my research first hand, make sure the surgeon is board certified by either of the boards of plastic surgery, you can find all of that information online I also think you can check with your state to...
