2017 Plastic Surgery Trends: The Year of the Nipple!

Like every aspect of the world of beauty, plastic surgery is constantly changing. Not only are state of the art techniques being developed and improved upon every day, but trends are evolving. Non-invasive procedures have transformed the market, while we are always trying to guess the next big plastic surgery trend.


At the end of last year, experts in the US plastic surgery industry made their best predictions for the biggest plastic surgery trends for 2017. Their number one pick was a big surprise to women around the world.

Why Is Nipple Surgery So Popular?

Plastic surgery clinics in the US predicted that 2017 was going to be the year of the nipple and they were right! According to stats from the United States, Sydney, and around the world, nipple surgery has had a surge in popularity. For those women who have always been completely content with their nipples, the trend may come as a big surprise. However, for the countless women who have inverted or flat nipples, the news is a breath of fresh air.

Over the past year alone, clinics across the States and in Australia have seen a 30 per cent increase in the number women requesting a smaller nipple size over the past year. And, while women are clamouring for smaller nipples, the most popular type of procedure is inverted nipples correction surgery.

Who Is Getting Cosmetic Surgery on Their Nipple?

There are nearly one million women in Australia with flat or inverted nipples. Their conditions range from mild to severe, and these women report that the look of their nipples has been a long-term cause of insecurity. There are also countless women in Sydney and across the world with long (floppy) and/ or puffy nipples.

Some women develop nipple conditions after pregnancy as a results of breast feeding. These changes often come along with darkened or thickened nipples and a widening of the areola.

At the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery, we regularly see women looking to get their old body back or simply create the look they have always wanted.

What It’s Like to Have Plastic Surgery on Your Nipples

Medically speaking, there are three different grades of nipple inversion so each procedure is slightly different. In any case, however, it is a simple and fast solution. Nipple correction is a minor procedure that can be done without general anaesthesia. It actually just takes around 30 minutes and you can be on your way home in no time after the procedure.

Of course, it is also possible to change more than one aspect of your breast at one time. Many women opt to combine a nipple correction with areola reduction or even a breast augmentation.
