In brief: Areola Yes

If you are referring to your areola, yes they are generally reduced in size surgically.
The nipples themselves are not changed in size. Best wishes.

In brief: Yes and no

With breast reduction the size of the areola can be reduced, however the nipples size doesn't change.

The size of the areola is typically reduced in size to match the smaller breast. The nipple may lose some projection with the surgery, but typically the nipple size does not change significantly.
