Puffy areolars after breast augmentation surgery.
Women who naturally have quite full and “puffy” areolars can expect them to be much puffier after surgery. This is because the areolar skin is thinner and more easily stretched compared to the surrounding skin. Therefore, after surgery when everything is tight and under tension, the area that’s easier to stretch, the areolar, stretches the most.
However, once the breast has fully settled down and softened up, which typically occurs at the 3-6month post-op mark, then the areolars should return to how they were pre-operatively.
