Cosmetic nipple surgery is seriously a thing, and it sounds seriously painful. They’re calling it “designer nipples,” and it seems to have started because of the trend of see-through tops that celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid have been wearing.
One doctor based in New York says he’s seen the demand for cosmetic procedures on nipples increase 4-times the usual amount (4 per week back then, to 18 a week now) just since December. He says people want to change the shape of their nipples, making them more symmetrical and to have them protrude a bit. He suspects that it’s because of the see-through style shirts that Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid have been pictured in when they’re out at nightclubs.
It’s a long read, and has pictures, so maybe don’t check it out at work, but see more details here.
