The areola, which remains tethered to its original blood supply by a thin band of connective fatty acids known as “the pedicle,” can be moved along with it if necessary so that both sizes match after surgery; this helps reduce the likelihood of scarring over time due in part because only one side will see any protest against movement from force applied.
