2. What is Areola Pigmentation?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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. 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.
