Wide Aerola

What is a wide areola?

Many women have concerns or curiosity about certain body parts such as areola. The areola is the pigmented part of the breast around the nipples. Just like the breasts, there are different kinds of areolas varying in colors (ranging from pink to black), sizes, and shapes. It is normal to have areolas in different sizes and shapes and it does not cause any health risks. The areola size is not always connected with the breast size since it is common among women with both small or large breasts. If you are conscious about wide areola, it is best to consult your cosmetologist and undergo treatment to change its size and shape.

Causes of the wide areola

Macromastia: Macromastia is a kind of breast hypertrophy. It is a rare medical condition where the breast tissue or areola gets abnormally enlarged. Several studies have proved that this condition develops in adolescence and can affect the mental health of teens. The exact cause of the wide areola teen tits is still not clear, however, some believe that hormones might be the cause for breast or areola enlargement. In some cases, it is said to be caused by excessive fat tissue, glandular hypertrophy, or a mixture of both. If you are looking for a remedy for this condition, you need to consult a leading cosmetologist. 

Breast ptosis: Breast ptosis is a condition where the breasts sag or droop. This can be due to several factors, such as age, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations. When the breasts sag, the areola (the dark area around the nipple) becomes wider and more pronounced.  Breast ptosis can be a cosmetic concern for some women, and it may also cause physical discomfort. There are a variety of treatments available to correct breast ptosis. We recommend scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
