People Are Now Getting Their Nipples Reduced Through Surgery
Yes, you’ve read correctly. I actually said nipple reduction.
Based off a survey The Plastic Surgery Group conducted, they have discovered that women are choosing to reduce their nipple size when undergoing breast surgery.
If you haven’t noticed, society has been embracing the look of smaller boobs lately, and with that the request for smaller nipples and areolae has risen.
“We have seen a 30% rise in women requesting a smaller nipple size in the last year,” says London-based plastic surgeon Dan Marsh. “This is tied into the trend towards smaller breast augmentation sizes.”
Still not understanding the point of the surgery?
Well, like almost everything else in the world is based of, it’s because on attractiveness. The Plastic Surgery Group went on to further study to see what people thought were the ideal nipple size by compiling a selection of photos of breasts and nipple, where they asked 131 participants to rate the nipples presented from one to five in order of attractiveness. Consultant Plastic Surgeon Mo Akhavani found that patients with smaller sized nipples were rated higher in attractiveness than those with larger nipples.
No surprise there.
The new found acceptance of smaller breast is not the only thing that led to this weirdly indicated trend, but Akhavani has also attributed the current demand to the ”free the nipple” movement. The nipple has always been deemed inappropriate to be shown, only for women of course, but the movement brought a spotlight towards the nipple.
Akhavani went on to say, “celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell being vocal about ‘freeing the nipple’ on social media and trends emerging around what women’s nipple preferences are, we may be seeing a shift in attitudes and a new era of “nip tuck.”
Well, there you have it folks. I welcome you to the so-called “new era of nip tuck.” Honestly people, if you don’t NEED it, then there’s no need to go through surgery for it. You and your nipples are fine just the way they are. Like all trends, it will fade away.
