Nipple And Areola Reduction Surgery 

Nipple And Areola Reduction Surgery 

Nipple Surgery 

Breast appearance is a major factor that contributes to an attractive body. Women who are unhappy with the way their breasts look can choose from several different procedures such as breast augmentation or a breast lift. Breast augmentation helps to enlarge small breasts, while a breast lift is performed to raise the breast and reposition the nipple.  

During these procedures, it is also possible to adjust the size of the areola that surrounds the nipple. Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides nipple and areola reduction procedures to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities. 

Who Can Undergo Nipple and Areola Reduction Surgery? 

Aesthetic breasts have well-positioned nipples and symmetrical areolae. After breastfeeding, or with age, breasts tend to sag. This means the nipple moves to a position below the inframammary fold which lies under the breast. In these cases, a cosmetic surgeon may recommend a breast lift. If the areolae have stretched or grown puffy or enlarged, they may suggest an areola reduction procedure, too. 

Nipple and areola reduction surgery is a good choice for women who have: 

  • Droopy or long or protruding nipples 
  • Asymmetrical nipples 
  • Areolae that are disproportionate to breast size 
  • Puffy or irregular shaped areolae 

What Are the Benefits of Areola and Nipple Reduction? 

Areola and nipple reduction are procedures that are simple and safe when performed by skilled and experienced surgeons. They generally do not require general anesthesia. They may be combined with other breast enhancement procedures to improve the overall breast appearance.  

Women who undergo these plastic surgery procedures feel more confident about wearing lingerie or clothes in which their breasts or nipples are visible. They also often experience better self-esteem in intimate situations.  

What Happens in a Nipple and Areola Reduction Surgery? 

Cosmetic surgeons may perform nipple and areola reduction procedures under local anesthesia. When combined with other breast enhancement procedures such as breast augmentation or breast lift, they may choose to use general anesthesia.  

In areola reduction, the surgeon measures and removes a ring of tissue along the outer edge of the areola. This procedure is combined with a nipple reduction if the patient so desires. Using sutures, the surgeon closes the incisions and bandages the area. 

What is the Recovery Process after Nipple and Areola Reduction? 

Following the surgery, the doctor applies a special dressing to maintain the position of the nipple. When performed with only a local anesthetic, the doctor will discharge you soon after the surgery.  

You may experience a little swelling or bruising or tingling or numbness after surgery. This will settle down after a few weeks. Some people may feel some pain post-surgery, but it will respond to simple pain relieving medication.  

Complete recovery will take a few weeks. Plan to have someone drive you home after the procedure and arrange for help at home for at least the first few days following the surgery.

What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? 

Chin Augmentation Implant to Strengthen Your Jaw Line

Chin implant cosmetic surgery is a long-lasting solution for a receding or weak chin and jawline. This procedure involves strengthening the facial planes by inserting biocompatible implants made of silicone below the chin bone. The surgical technique is also called mentoplasty 

When combined with nose surgery, it can give you a facial appearance that is more attractive and harmonious. Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides chin and jaw line contouring surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding locations. 

What are a Weak Chin and Jawline? 

A chin which appears small or slopes backwards is called a weak chin. Such a receding chin causes the jawline to look less defined. This may detract from the masculine appearance in men. In women, a receding chin gives the nose too much prominence, marring the appearance of an otherwise attractive face. 

Some people also have a “double” chin where there seems to be extra fat deposits below the chin. Even persons without the fat deposit may have this look if their jaw line is not well-defined, or if their chin is narrow, or if the chin and neck are not well separated from each other.  

Why Chin Implants? 

A chin implant cosmetic surgery can give you the following benefits: 

  • An elegant jawline because of better separation of the jaw from the neck. 
  • A slimmer face where the jawline is more slender than before. 
  • A better harmony between the facial features to make your face more attractive. 
  • A smaller appearing nose that blends in better with your face. 

What is Chin Implant Surgery? 

Chin implant surgery or chin augmentation surgery involves a procedure in which the contours of the chin and jawline are modified by using biocompatible implants. The surgeon will examine your chin and help you choose an implant to get the look you desire. The actual procedure involves making a tiny cut under the chin to fashion a space for the implant.  

The surgeon inserts the silicone implant into this pocket, positions it to achieve the desired angle, and closes the cut. After the area heals, you will find your chin and jawline to be more defined and looking stronger than before.  

Other Procedures for Weak Chin and Jawline 

If you have a double chin, the surgeon may recommend a procedure called neck liposuction to remove the extra fatty tissue below the chin. If necessary, this may be combined with chin implant surgery to give your jawline greater definition.  

Some persons have lax skin in the face and neck regions due to age or genetic causes. In such cases, the surgeon may suggest a combination of chin implant surgery with facelift or neck lift procedures for better results.  

Skilled cosmetic surgeons offer solutions that are tailored to meet your particular requirements from the chin implant and jawline augmentation surgery.

Mole / Skin Tag Removal 

Mole Removal 

Removal of abnormal moles or unsightly skin tags is a simple excision process that can be done on an outpatient basis. A local anesthetic may be sufficient and sedatives are usually not necessary. It is best to remove moles that put you at greater risk of skin cancer in the future. 

When you notice a mole that appears different from your other moles, or shows signs of change, consult an experienced cosmetic surgeon. They will examine the mole to determine if it is normal or abnormal. If any mole is identified as being pre-cancerous or abnormal, the surgeon will perform a minor excision surgery to remove it. When it is skillfully performed, such a procedure will not leave a conspicuous scar.

Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides mole and skin tag removal procedures to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.  

Which Moles Should be Removed? 

Skin aberrations may fall into one of the following categories: 

  • Flat moles: Irregular or dark skin spots that appear different from the rest of the skin. 
  • Skin tags: Small, usually painless skin outgrowths which are skin-colored, or sometimes darker than the rest of the skin.  
  • Raised moles: Skin growths which rise above the skin’s surface, usually growing from deep inside the skin. 

Skin tags generally do not require treatment unless they are a cosmetic issue or causing discomfort. While most moles are non-cancerous, it is important to do an evaluation of any mole that changes its color, size, or shape. If you find your mole has begun to itch, hurt, bleed or ooze, see a doctor at once.  

Skin Tags and Mole Removal Surgery 

Mole removal surgery is a simple procedure. The surgeon will decide which removal method to use depending on the nature of the mole. Superficial moles are just shaved off the skin surface. A natural scab forms on the area and it drops off by itself after a few days. The new skin under the skin will appear pinkish red at first, but it slowly blends with the surrounding skin color.  

Deeper moles have to be excised out after first making a tiny cut. After excision, the area will be stitched with sutures. Whatever method is used, you must keep the treated area clean and protected from sunlight for a few weeks until the wound heals completely. 

Never Use Home Remedies for Mole Removal  

Never make the mistake of trying to shave off your mole at home. Some moles may appear superficial but extend far below the skin and only a doctor can decide the best way to remove them. Although it sounds like a simple process, mole removal has to be done by a certified, trained, and skilled surgeon or at least directly under their supervision.  

Clumsy attempts at self-treatment for moles can be dangerous and may cause uncontrolled bleeding or skin infections or permanent scarring. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan receives patients from Dallas, Texas, and nearby areas for mole and skin tag removal.
