Perky Boobs Are On The Rise With—Ouch!—Nipple Surgery

Who’s your nipple role model?

Have no idea what we’re talking about? Good. You haven’t been brainwashed by yet another plastic surgery trend we don’t understand: nipple surgery to change the shape, color or size of your areolae. According to the Daily Mail, a cosmetic surgery clinic called the Harley Medical Group in London has reported a 30 percent rise on nipple surgeries in the past year, including more from women who haven’t recently undergone mastectomies.

With a price tag of roughly $3,200, there are oh so many ways to sculpt your funbags: ‘padding’ the areola with extra skin as to push the nipple out, ‘popping out’ inverted nipples, and even getting tattoos to change the areolae’s pigmentation. Owwwwwww.

How dies the supply/demand on stuff like this work? At least one doctor thinks celeb nip slips are the cause. “Until now celebrities didn’t expose their nipples so they were no ‘nipple role models,'” explained Dr. Riccardo Frati, a plastic surgeon with the Harley Medical Group. We’ll stick with professional role models, thanks. [Daily Mail UK]
