Nipple enlargement is also commonly called nipple augmentation. There are a wide variety of reasons for wanting to have nipples enlarged and there are an equal number of surgical methods used to accomplish the task. Surgical nipple procedures are gaining popularity in many major cosmetic surgery markets. However, there are also several effective noninvasive methods of nipple enhancement, which might provide good results without an operation.
This article details surgical and nonsurgical modalities which can make nipples larger.
Methods of Nipple Enlargement
Nipple augmentation can be accomplished through several surgical methods.
Minimally invasive procedures can be utilized to implant fat and other tissue under the nipple, giving it an elongated appearance.
Tissue grafting involves the placement of skin and cartilage from another anatomical location and is also a popular modality of nipple enhancement.
Severing the milk ducts from the nipple is an easy procedure which will allow the nipple to project farther outwards, but always comes at the expense of losing the ability to breastfeed.
There are other less common procedures used to enlarge the nipples, but these are utilized under special circumstances indicated by particular nipple conditions.
Nipple Augmentation Procedure
Nipple surgery as a stand-alone procedure is minimally invasive and usually quite easy to recover from. The surgery is done as an outpatient and often under local anesthetic.
It is more common for women to have nipple surgery in combination with a breast procedure, such as a mastopexy or a periareolar breast augmentation. Since the nipple is being surgically altered anyway during these procedures, it can be custom re-designed to fit the wishes of the patient.
Make sure to discuss this option with your doctor, if you are thinking about a more invasive breast enhancement procedure and have nipple-related body image issues.
Nonsurgical Nipple Enlargement
There are also non-surgical or minimally invasive methods of enlarging the nipples. The most commons modalities of non-surgical enhancement include:
Piercing the nipple and progressively increasing ring size will elongate the nipple structure. This can jeopardize nipple sensitivity and breastfeeding ability and might create a nipple deformity, if the piecing is permanently removed.
Nipple pumps can temporarily increase nipple size.
Nipple clamps can temporarily enlarge the nipples.
Some topical products might be effective at temporarily increasing nipple size, firmness and projection.
Manual nipple stretching might be effective temporarily or permanently, but might result in droopy and sagging nipples.
Nipple Enlargement Practices
Nipple augmentation is a specialized procedure which is really individually tailored to meet the specific needs and expectations of the patient. Although this seems like a small and insignificant surgery, it can have a profound effect on the mind and spirit of any individual.
The nipple is the focal point of the bosom and is responsible for the majority of sensual stimuli felt in the breast. It is no surprise that women with disproportionately small or inverted nipples might feel self conscious of their condition.
