Nipple - Areola Correction

Case 229

This 30-year-old woman wanted her nipples to be less prominent and began looking for a skilled Los Angeles or Santa Monica plastic surgeon who could reduce the size of her nipples. After doing some research, she scheduled a consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.

When she met with her surgeon, he examined her nipples and discussed the specific type of nipple surgery he would perform. To preserve the function of the nipple and the surrounding nerves, her surgeon would perform a special technique that does not cut the milk duct and works around the nerves to preserve sensation. Additionally, he would make the incision around the base of the nipple to conceal any scarring that might occur.

After her surgery was completed, her nipples were recessed to a more normal size. In the "after" photos, there is slight scarring around the nipple, but it is very faint. When asked how she felt after the surgery, this patient said she was very happy with the results and glad that her nipples had a more discrete profile.

Case 449

This 56-year-old woman complained of breast asymmetry and capsular contracture. She also desired larger breasts. Dr. Stoker performed breast capsulotomies and correction of her breast asymmetry. He replaced her implants with 475cc, textured, anatomical shape, cohesive gel “gummy” implants placed under the muscle through areolar incisions. He also corrected the depression that she had on her right areola. She is shown before and six months following her surgery.

Case 77

This 41-year-old woman from Southern California desired breast implant corrective surgery. Fifteen years earlier she underwent breast augmentation by another surgeon using 435cc double lumen silicone gel and saline implants placed on top of the pectoralis major muscle through periareolar incisions. After researching plastic surgeons, she decided to consult with Dr. David Stoker because of his credentials, experience and results.

On examination, her surgeon found that she had a capsular contracture on the right side, areola distortion in shape, areola position asymmetry, and visible ripples in the cleavage area from the implants. She was a DD-cup and desired to be smaller and more symmetrical.

In the operating room her surgeon removed her right implant capsule and her 435cc implants. He then created new pockets under the muscle and placed Mentor Siltex textured 275cc moderate plus profile silicone gel implants on each side. After achieving a more ideal size, he then performed a breast lift (mastopexy). The breast lift improved the shape and symmetry of the areolas, tightened the excess skin and decreased rippling from the implants.

The patient is shown before and two months after her breast implant corrective surgery.

Case 76

This 30-year-old woman is a mother of two children and a nurse at a prominent Los Angeles university medical center.  She had undergone three previous breast implant surgeries by other surgeons with suboptimal results which she desired to improve.  She also had substantial stretching and droopiness of her left nipple from breast feeding, and she desired a shorter nipple that better matched her other side.

Thirteen years earlier the patient underwent her first breast operation by another surgeon, the placement of 350cc saline implants on top of the pectoralis major muscle.  Three years later the patient elected to exchange her implants for larger 450cc saline implants also placed on top of the muscle.  Three years after that she underwent her third breast operation (also by another surgeon) to remove her saline implants and replace them with 570cc high profile silicone gel implants placed under the muscle.  The large implants caused the skin between the breasts separated from the sternum creating a deformity called synmastia (one breast rather than two).  She also was bothered by implant ripples.

She consulted with a surgeon at Plastic Surgery because of their credentials and expertise with corrective breast implant surgery.  Her surgeon performed a difficult operation where her implants were removed and her breast capsules were divided and then sutured to her ribs to recreate the normal space between the breasts.  He replaced the 570cc implants with 450cc Siltex textured moderate plus profile silicone gel implants in the pocket under the pectoralis major muscle.

At the patient's request, her surgeon also performed a left nipple reduction.  The skin around the base of the nipple was removed and sutured to the areola.  The nipple projection was successfully decreased by more than 50%, and it closely matched her other side.

She is shown before and six months after her surgery for breast implant correction and nipple reduction.
