I am 3 months post op now and all the surgeon did was lipo suction only and I'm not happy. My Areola is still very puffy. I went back to my surgeon and he said that he needs to cut the whole Areola to remove the gland tissue and than tighten the skin up. But I don't think he needs to do that all I'm thinking is he needs to do is an incision under my Areola and remove the gland tissue. Can some one please help me? Is it Necessary for him to cut my whole Areola ?

A photo would be helpful.I do not cut around the entire areola.If one made a 360 incision they would not be able to remove tisuue below the areola and nipple and have the structures survive.
