Women have always been keen to achieve perfect breasts. That’s why breast augmentation has consistently remained the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure carried out across the globe.
However, while at one time the focus was on achieving larger, more symmetrical breasts, it’s now switched to a more surprising trend – designer nipples.
The rise of designer nipples
Recently, there’s been a rise in the number of women choosing to alter the shape, size and overall look of the nipples. The trend is said to be partially down to celebrities such as Rihanna, Bella Hadid and the Jenner- Kardashians, opting to wear see-through outfits.
Cosmetic surgery has come a long way over the years and due to social media and the pressures to look perfect, women are now starting to scrutinise every detail of themselves. Thanks to new techniques and minimally invasive surgeries, it’s possible to focus on practically every part of the body, no matter how small.
So, what classes as the perfect nipple these days? Well, apparently, they should be small and symmetrical and one New York plastic surgeon recently claimed that he’d seen the demand for this procedure more than quadrupled over the last six months.
Is nipple surgery worth it?
While most women are choosing to undergo nipple surgery to fit in with the latest fashion trends, for others it’s down to medical reasons. Enlarged or inverted nipples can cause a lot of discomfort, so surgery could help to eliminate that problem.
Like all surgeries, there are risks involved. Infection could occur, causing a lot of pain, along with bleeding and bruising. As with all cosmetic surgery procedures, Mr Paul Tulley will talk you through the risks, along with how they can be treated if they do occur after the surgery, before you make the decision to proceed.
So, is it worth the potential risks? The surgery can have fantastic aesthetic results, but fashion trends don’t last forever. You need to think about the long-term effects nipple reduction surgery could have and decide whether it’s something you’ve wanted for ages or simply to keep up with the latest trend. Before going under the knife, it’s important to consider your reasons and talk through your options during a consultation.
