Hi, I am a 45 year old woman who had a breast reduction 5 years ago. The one result I am not pleased with is that after removing my areola and then attaching them after surgery, the surgeon left most of my original attached. So i have 2 sets of them. The left over below the 2 that they attached to finish the surgery. Is there a surgery that can be done to take away the originals that were left on my breast? Thanks

Thank you for your question. Often if there is excess skin, the retained areola can be removed. An in-person evaluation can easily determine if this is the case. Hope this helps.

Without an examination, that question is not possible to answer. You would need to have an examination first, if there is subsequent laxity in the skin, then re-lifting and tightening might solve your issue.
