Question Areola surgery? Snoopy Breasts?

Does anyone know anything about the areola surgery? Is it only for those that are flat areola? Mine are puffy and large and i can't stand them. I'm more self consious about them than anything on my entire body. I feel like a guy will look down on my entire body b/c of them. No fair. I would love to have surgery to change them if that's available. I believe i've heard them refered to as some deformity called 'snoopy' breats or something.

Doctors can put implants in - they score the breast tissue down at the bottom crease of the breast and expand it to go lower, then the implant is put in and the breasts are fuller and lose that snoopy look. If the areola is VERY BIG around, the doctor can decrease their size by making them smaller and the stitches used can sort of force them to flatten out as they heal - getting rid of any puffiness.

If you really want to know what a doctor will do on your breasts and how much it will cost, look in your phone book or on the internet for plastic surgeons in your area - phone them up and ask if they give free consultations. Some will charge money for the consultation and refund that into the cost of surgery should you choose to have surgery with them - others will charge nothing at all and it's entirely free for the consultation - but you need to phone around and ask.
