Would you recommend an areolar reduction or breast augmentation or both?
Simply enlarging your breasts will not help improve the size ratio since your areolar are already enlarged and may actually get bigger with placement of implants. To create better symmetry, I would place sub pectoral implants and then reduce the areolas and lift the breast tissue using a lollipop incision breast lift. I hope this helps and wish you the very best! Make sure and choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in breast enhancement surgery.
Periareolar Breast Reduction
Thanks for your photo.I guess that your areaola size is now arround 5cm but it should be 4 cm.You will benefit from a periareolar reduction with implants which will be placed inframamarial.Please consult and discuss with a board certified plastic surgeon.Good luck.
Areola reduction vs. implants
If you decide that larger breasts are what you would like, you almost certainly would need some sort of lift, most likely a lollipop type. If you simply reduce the size of the areolas, along with placement of implants, the areolas will stretch over time and end up being bigger than they are now. The lollipop incision will take the tension off the nipples and give you a more youthful look. There are many scar treatments that can be applied, but you need to achieve the proper breast form first and then have your plastic surgeon help you with the various scar treatments available.Hope this helps.Best,Dr. Christine Rodgers

Areola reduction or breast implant?
will be board certified in something, just not plastic surgery. I would look for someone who is a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). This goes a step beyond ASPS as member surgeons must specialize in cosmetic plastic surgery and be recommended by their peers. You should also only consider plastic surgeons who have local hospital privileges and who operate in accredited facilities, not in their office. Also make sure they only use board certified anesthesiologists. I would then look at reviews on RealSelf and Google. Also look at their website to see if they have many post op photos you like. Schedule several consultations and see which doctor and staff seems to be a fit for you. Ask to talk with previous patients who
have had the surgery you are considering. Anyone good will have a list of them.
Should I consider an areola reduction or breast implant?
Thank you for your question. In this case, you can have placement of breast implants to increase breast size, upper pole fullness and improve cleavage and have a circum-areolar (donut) mastopexy to help reduce the size of the areola. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
Augmentation would be your best choice
Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about the arreolas scarring, but as with any surgery, scarring is completely normal. I think you would benefit greatly from an augmentation to achieve the full look you desire. Although, should you choose to have only the augmentation, the arreolas could expand to a larger size. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Best of luck!
