The ideal breast displays proportion between volume, shape and features. Sometimes areolas are disproportionately large for a particular breast size, causing embarrassment. In the hands of a skilled Sacramento plastic surgeon, areolas can be made smaller, as can nipples if that is desired.
During breast augmentation, the entire breast is enlarged. If your areolas are large to begin with, that will not change during breast augmentation. If you choose to undergo breast augmentation in Sacramento, it is possible to reduce the relative size of your areolas during the procedure. Your surgeon will make a circumferential incision around the areola and remove some of the extra tissue while closing the incision. Sometimes this procedure is better performed as a second minor surgery after breast augmentation. The size can be more precisely determine after breast enlargement and the scars tend to heal better when they're not under tension (after implants are newly placed).
If you're considering a breast reduction or a breast lift with or without implants, this is an ideal opportunity to reduce your areolas while relocating them to a more aesthetically pleasing position.
