Many women are fixated on certain parts of their body: belly, buttocks, chest, you name it. Even if the trend is headed towards self-acceptance, it seems that in the United States the whim of the perfect body has struck again, now with nipple surgery.
Plastic surgery offices are always full! All young American women want only one thing at the moment, to have their nipples operated on.
Interviewed by The Independent, New York plastic surgeon Norman Rowe worries about this new female complex: ‘My patients also want to wear transparent dresses, and this leads them to take a more critical look at their nipples.’ According to him, this phenomenon comes from celebrities. They are often on the red carpet without any underwear, and we can make out the shape of their nipples through their dresses. And it is this effect that young Americans want to reproduce.
The most affected are women under 25 years old. Influenced by their idols such as Rihanna, Emily Ratajkowski or Bella Hadid, they want to reduce the areola of their nipples, and have nipples that stick out.
While the trend is quite present across the Atlantic, in the UK, the demand remains rather anecdotal and it is perhaps better if it stays that way.
