Areolar reduction during gynecomastia surgery?
Doctor Answers 4
Sometimes areolar reduction helps to harmonize the appearance of the male chest so that there is not disproportion between the diameter of the areola and the size of the remaining breast tissue. Discussing with your board certified plastic surgeon can help facilitate whether or not you would benefit from an areolar reduction. Best, TMM
Possible Areola Reduction with Gynecomastia
Therefore if you are unhappy in any way with the size or placement of your areolae then it is completely up to you in the consultation with your surgeon to add that to the surgery you will plan. Either of these procedures can be included in your gynecomastia, so you are always welcome to ask for the procedure to meet all of your requests completely.
