Yep, just when you’ve mastered your new thigh gap/side vag/zero cleavage look, your nips are in danger of extinction.
Unlike that Mental as Anything song from the 70s, in 2017 the nips are getting smaller.
In the weird new trend, created by people with too much money and not enough real problems, women are lining up to get their nipples surgically reduced.
I repeat. THEY ARE GETTING THEIR NIPPLES SURGICALLY REDUCED.
In December last year, The Plastic Surgery Group, a collective of British plastic surgery associations, released a statement about the emerging trend.
“We have seen a 30 per cent rise in women requesting a smaller nipple size in the last year,” said consultant plastic surgeon Dan Marsh.
“This is tied into the trend towards smaller breast augmentation sizes.”
You’ll remember that in late 2016 Vogue announced that cleavage was ‘over’, and big-breasted women all over the world, removed their boobs and hid them at the back of their wardrobes? Well it turns out that was just a pointless activity as our huge hideous nipples are still ruining our chances of creating the perfect body.
“During breast surgery to lift or reduce the breast the nipple is repositioned. This requires an incision around the nipple and gives the patient an opportunity to resize her nipple. We have always asked our patients to choose the size of their nipple during surgery rather than using a standard template,” Marsh explains.
