Q: Need Information About Areola Reduction

June 10, 2011
by Dr. Carlin Vickery

Q: I just want to know how it's done and how much it costs, also what's the recovery like. I would only like it done to one of my areolas.

A: Areola reduction can be achieved with local anesthesia or under light sedation. The recovery should be relatively pain free and the biggest inconvenience will be needing to keep the area dry during the initial healing period. Cost will depend on the amount of areola to be removed.
