Properly sized and proportioned breasts can definitely enhance a woman’s appearance, especially when wearing a nice dress, a sexy bikini, or sensual lingerie. But what most people don’t realize is that, no matter how perfectly formed breasts are, the look can easily be thrown off by disproportionate nipples.
Having too small nipples can give an unnatural look to the breasts, but more importantly, can actually affect a person’s well-being. The nipples are the focal point of the bosom’s sexual stimuli, and having small, or inverted nipples, can greatly hinder this, which in turn, affects the person’s mind and body negatively. This is where nipple augmentation comes in.
What is Nipple Augmentation?
Nipple augmentation surgery is an often minimally invasive procedure that helps improve, or correct, the size of the patient’s nipples, to make them more proportional to the areola and the rest of the bosom. The surgery has both practical and aesthetic purposes, and is quickly gaining popularity in the cosmetic plastic surgery market as an enhancement to breast augmentation surgery.
This procedure is highly recommended to people who feel very conscious about the appearance of their nipples, and for those who have inverted nipples, as it has both physical and psychological benefits that can greatly enhance the person’s overall well-being.
Nipple Augmentation Procedure
There are many ways to perform nipple augmentation, depending on the severity of the situation or the preferences of the patient. It usually requires very little surgery, and has a very short recovery time, allowing for patients to quickly return to their normal lives afterwards.
One method implants the patient’s own fat and tissue taken from a specific part of the body right into the nipples, increasing the size and giving them a larger appearance. Another method is called tissue grafting, and uses pieces of the patient’s cartilage and skin, instead of fat and tissue.
There is a method that employs cutting the milk ducts from the nipples in order to push the nipple farther forwards. But while this procedure is easy to perform, the patient will lose their ability to breastfeed, so this procedure is usually only employed by women who do not have any plans to breastfeed in the future.
There are also non-surgical nipple augmentation methods available. These range from topical cream products, to various devices such as nipple pumps and clamps. While these have the promise to yield results, for patients who wish for long term and more secure results, it is highly recommended to seek the services of a plastic surgeon.
Risks and Recovery
Like all plastic surgery procedures, there are potential risks involved in nipple augmentation surgery. One possible risk is loss of the ability to breastfeed. This can happen if the procedure is not done correctly, and the milk ducts end up damaged or severed. Another is drooping or sagging nipples which can be caused by improper surgery.
Infections are also a risk, so it is imperative for patients to take whatever medication is required by the surgeon. When done correctly, recovery time is very short, ranging from a few days to about a week or two.
