But that may be worth it. Would you prefer to have smaller areolas, but have scars that extend all the way around the areola and possibly down the middle (a "lollipop" incision)? This incision pattern often produces a result that, despite the additional scarring, is so much more aesthetic that patients are happier.
You should discuss this with one or more board-certified plastic surgeons who can examine you in person and give you specific advice.
I hope that this helps and good luck,

Reducing Areola Size
Your old scars around your areola can be removed during your areola reduction surgery and a new scar would be created around your areola when the incision is closed. It is important to close the new incision in multiple layers to remove tension from the surface of the incision, which could help minimize widening of the scar. Best of luck!

Want smaller areolas?
The areola size can be reduced with an incision around the areola. Any existing scars will be removed with this technique, and only the new incision will remain. I suggest a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon for more information on this procedure. The recovery time is minimal.
