I am curious about an areola reduction. Ultimately, I'd like for them to be about 2cm instead of 6. Can a surgeon do this?

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. Though your areola are not excessively large for your breast size, you can have a reduction performed. The average areola diameter of a woman is just under 4cm in diameter, and based on your tissues, further reduction to a 2cm diameter may leave you with a flattened appearance to the front of your breast. See an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to discuss your treatment options and incision placement. Hope this helps.
