The nipple consists of two parts, namely the areola and the nipple. The nipple is the pointy up-right part and the areola is the darker area around the nipple.
THE AREOLA REDUCTION
An average areola is approximately 4,5 cm in diameter. A large areola can easily be corrected under local anaesthetic.
An areola reduction can also be performed without additional surgery. Through an incision in the outer part of the nipple of the areola, the pigmented skin around the nipple or areola is removed. This procedure may leave a small scar around the areola. An areola reduction does not cause any problems with future breast feeding.
At first I had reservations about travelling abroad for cosmetic surgery, but after I had done plenty of research I felt quite confident about it. And it's only Belgium after all! I'm so glad I decided to go with Beau Care. I saved around £2000, compared to having it done in the UK, which is a massive amount of money for me. The morning I arrived at the clinic, I was impressed, it was soo clean and nicely decorated, and the fact it didn't feel like a 'standard' hospital put me at ease.
Dr Wim Danau performed my surgery, he was very reassuring on the morning of the operation, and I felt like I was in very capable hands. I would definitely recommend him. A couple of days after surgery I returned and was able to have my drains removed and my bandages changed. I am now 6 months post surgery, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I have no regrets, whatsoever. I couldn't recommend Beau Care enough. Please do get in touch if you have any questions at all, I know I felt it helpful to speak to people who had also been to Beau Care!
