How do you get consistency of nipple circumference post mastopexy procedure?
Doctor Answers 5
The change in areolar circumference is a fairly normal outcome from breast augmentation, but the choice of a a circumareolar mastopexy at the same time has tipped the odds of asymmetry against you.
Once your breast swelling has gone (6-12 months), redoing the areolar diameter is a reasonable option - depending on the difference in sizing, it might be safer to do both at the same time. There are techniques that can be employed to make the circumference/diameter less likely to stretch out - but like all things, there can be downsides to these options as well.
