Can Areolar Reductions Be Done With The Placement Of Breast implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Is it possible to get nipple and areola reduction surgery? Also breast implants of my choice like Motiva or any brand I prefer? 

Thank you.

A: Certainly nipple reduction can be done at the same time as the placement of breast implants with no adverse effects. One has to be more thoughtful in regards to areolar reduction as the expansion of the breast mound from the implants may place abnormal stretching on the healing areolar reduction incisions and cause wider scars than would otherwise occur.

Motiva breast implants are not currently FDA approved for use in the U.S.
