A frenzy across the Atlantic

The plastic surgery offices are full to the brim! Many young American women want only one thing at the moment: to have nipple surgery. Interviewed by The Independent, New York plastic surgeon Dr Norman Rowe is concerned about this new female complex.

According to him, this phenomenon comes from celebrities. Often without undergarments on the red carpet, their nipples can be seen through their dresses. And this is the effect that young American women want to recreate.

The influence behind this trend?

Norman Rowe shared:

My patients come in with pictures from magazines of nipples that they want; they want to wear see-through dresses too, and that makes them take a closer look at their nipples.

The most affected are women under 25. Influenced by their idols such as Rihanna, Emily Ratajkowski or Bella Hadid, they want to reduce the areola of their nipples and have pointy nipples. While the trend is really present on the other side of the Atlantic, in the world, the demand remains rather limited and maybe it's better that way.
