In the name of getting perkier nipples, would you subject your girls to filler injections? Before you laugh and write the thought of this off, know that lots of women have answered yes to this question. In fact, “nipple projection enhancement” is a rising trend that many plastic surgeons have seen this year.
So if you’re toying with the idea of getting dermal fillers for your nipples, you’re not alone, girlfriend. But here’s what you should know first.
So What Is Nipple Projection Enhancement, Anyway?
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new braless fashion trend that takes the “free the nipple” slogan to a whole new level. Apparently, women across the country are embracing a look that highlights their perky nipples through their shirts, rather than hides them. Hey, to each her own — we’re not here to judge.
If you’re looking to get on board with this new trend, you might be interested in what’s being called “nipple projection enhancement,” which is a fancy way of saying your nips will look hard and perky, like, all the time. This is achieved through the careful placement of dermal fillers, which work by plumping up your nips in all the right places.
How Long Do Nipple Injections Last?
On average, nipple injections will last 6 to 9 months, depending on the exact filler you get and how quickly your body metabolizes it. Just know that, like all dermal filler results, your nipple fillers won’t be permanent and you’ll need to get regular injections if you want to keep up the ultra-perky look.
All good things must come to an end: nipple fillers are temporary and will gradually wear away over time.
But on the flip side, if you’re not so in love with bearing it all under white t-shirts, the effects of dermal fillers for nipples will fade away over the next few months. Still, it’s a great idea to be doubly sure this is something you want to try before going all in on it.
There’s Gotta Be Risks, Right?
Believe it or not, nipple injections are considered to be relatively safe and uncomplicated. That said, there are risks associated with any injectable procedure, so you’ll want to make sure you choose a highly trained and experienced professional to administer your nipple injections.
Unlike injections for your face, there are some potential complications specific to injecting the nipple area. Damaged milk ducts is one of them. So if you’re dead-set on breastfeeding in the future, you might want to hold off on the perky nipple trend for now.
What Are Your Other Options?
Fillers aren’t the only way you can change the look of your nips. During surgical procedures like a breast lift or breast reduction, your plastic surgeon may be able to address concerns like asymmetrical areolas or inverted nipples. If you have concerns like these, bring them up during your breast enhancement consultation so your plastic surgeon can factor them into your game plan for getting the boobs of your dreams.
