Areola pigmentation is the color of the area surrounding the nipple.

The area around the areola isn't always proportioned, and that's is natural.2

However, some women are born with very light areolas.

The color is faint and barely noticeable so they wish to have that coloring enhanced.

For others, the areola color changes over time due to hormonal changes caused by childbirth or a medical condition.

And, for some extreme circumstances, such as breast removal, women want to have the natural appearance of an areola.

So, they opt to have areola re-pigmentation surgery to enhance the look of their breasts.

2. Why Are Some Women's Areolas Brown and Others Pink?

It's interesting that women come in different shapes and sizes, and the same is true about the area around the breast.

Areolas come in various shapes and sizes, yet, they are often described as pink or brown.

Although it might seem logical to assume that race determines areola color, but that's not always true.

African American women and Latino females can have pink areolas, and Anglo females can have brown.

What determines areola color is a person's skin pigmentation mixed with hormone fluctuations.

3. Are Areola Bumps Normal?

Areola bumps are also called "Glands of the Montgomery" are sebaceous glands which look like tiny bumps surrounding the nipple area.

These glands are there to secrete oily fluid to keep the surrounding skin lubricated.

This lubrication protects the sensitive skin around the nipple and helps to prevent the skin from drying out.
