Lot of women sometime feel that their nipples and areolas are not proportionate and most women who seek nipple and areolas correction are unhappy with the current appearance and size. Common issues with areola are disproportionately large ones or those that protrude with a puffy appearance. In the case of nipple the reasons include ones are inverted, asymmetric or enlarged nipple. However with the help of modern plastic surgery this problem can be overcome with great results.
Procedure for inverted nipple, how it is done?
The inverted nipple procedure begins with a small incision placed near the base of the nipple and to reverse the surgeon gently spreads apart the fibers which are responsible for pulling the nipple inward. Once this is done successfully the nipple has been freed and is facing outward, and the fibers have been spread apart. After that the surgeon stitches up the incision carefully to ensure minimum scarring.

The removal of some of the pigmented areas is the way for reducing areola and this is done by making an incision around the areola or at the base of the nipple. However it is up to the surgeon what is the best course of action which would have been already discussed with the patient.
