Huge areola's post BA

I am 6 months post breast augmentation with peri-areola lift, 255MP anatomical overs, never breastfed, no children. My 1st question and concern is (with photos - limited to 2) : My areola's were quite small pre-BA and I liked them, they are now enormous - at least 3 to 4 times the size. Is this normal? Can I do anything to fix it as I am very unhappy and embarrassed to be naked. I am planning on seeing my plastic surgeon in a couple of weeks, however I would appreciate feedback from other qualified plastic surgeons in the meantime. My other concern is posted as a new question.

    Hi Lucy,

    I agree with Gavin's response, and I also avoid peri-areolar lifts because of this problem of stretching the areolar. To correct this, I believe you need to convert to a lollipop scar as Gavin suggests. Redoing a peri-areolar lift is likely to result in a stretched scar.

    Best wishes,
