What is the "perfect" nipple size?

Hi Everyone! I have soooo many questions!!!! I appreciate everyone answering them and helping me out! Hopefully after I get my procedures done I can help answer all these questions too! But for now I can only wish you all luck and a fast recovery. Well...had my second consult today and we talked about the lift and I mentioned my nipple size and he said that reducing it would be part of the procedure. PS said that he would make it the perfect, ideal nipple size. So...I am asking, What is the "perfect, ideal nipple size???? And who determines this????? Thanks!

I assume you are actually talking about the areola. I don't know if they are cookie cutter, so to speak. I think your PS will make them look like they should be for you...I had mine done too. I am having a slight revision to the right in September because it is slightly bigger than the left side.

Thanks Caligrrl!
I am glad that he is going to re-size them I was just curious on how they go about picking the size! When they do a revision do you still have to pay for that or do they because it's their error??? Curious...

She said no charge. She said it will be a simple revision in the office. I wish she would go bigger for free! LOL

So true! LOL I guess they have to pay their staff, and if you are under general again, they pay the anesthesiologist too....so they pass it on to you!

The Ideal sexiest size in my opinion (and to most men) is about the size of a quarter and then when they are hard they are the size of a nickle. Thats how my surgeon did mine..and I love them. B/c if you dont get them reduced the implant with stretch them out even more.

Hi Barbie Mommie!

I am glad you told me that about the "stretching". I didn't even think about that but it makes sense why they automatically do it with a lift..but what if you don't get a lift??? What happens to your nipple then?

Yes..Thanks! That's pretty much what I found out while doing my research! I also found this web page:

Thanks Milla! I can't wait to make the date. It will be sometime in August. Just waiting for the surgeon to call me back with available times. As for nipple size? Yes..I would like mine smaller. There not huge..but not small either and if implants make them larger I'll really want them made smaller!

My areolas are HUGE after breastfeeding two kids. They don't bug me though. DH is the only one that sees them. My BA stretched them out to the breastfeeding size. If I fake tan you can't tell. I'm so lily white normally!

I never knew nipple reduction was an in office procedure? Wonder what they'll do?

I just had a lift and BA a week ago and my PS said he'd make my areola's look "great." I didn't really press him on what "great" meant, but I knew anything smaller would be better! Well, flash forward to today and I love what he's done!!

I think the "perfect" size depends on a number of factors, and its difficult to attribute some numerical dimension to perfection. I'm sure your PS will make your nipples look fabulous, whatever that may entail!

Well, I don't know about the perfect size, but I can say that I had some sag after having 2 kids (didn't need a lift)and my areolas did not get any larger with my implants. They are the same size they have always been. ~Shelly~

I didn't know there was a pereect size either.
Mine have always been a little on the bigger side.
I like them just fine, and never thought of going smaller.
I had a lollipop lift with my BA. My areolas didn't stretch.
I think now with bigger boobs they are more in proportion.

I would think that a quarter is a nice size. Mine are easily a silver dollar... on a good day. Sigh.

This thread made me feel the need to measure mine. I have always thought they were a tad too big but my dh LOVES them. He thinks they make the boob. (Like the nipplerepair website says, beauty is in the eye of the beholder).

Mine measured exactly 4.5 cm diameter. I guess that is not too bad, but I could go for a tiny bit smaller.
