The nipple areolar complex is comprised of the areola the pigmented glandular tissue surrounding the nipple and the nipple the small projection near the center of the mammary gland containing the milk ducts. Enlarged areolas can be reduced in size with a relatively simple surgical procedure in order to enhance the overall aesthetic appearance of the breast. Following pregnancy and breast-feeding, or in cases of naturally enlarged breasts, areolas can become distended, in some cases stretching to a size of cm in circumference. Areola reduction involves the circumferential removal of excess areolar tissue through an incision made around the perimeter of the areola, with the goal of decreasing the areolar circumference to approximately 3. During areola reduction surgery, the nipple and central portion of the areola remain attached to the breast, and only the surplus, peripheral areola is excised.
