    Default Women getting their nipples nipped & tucked in quest for 'perfect' breasts

    'My boyfriend said they looked like Hob Nobs': Nipple reduction surgery on the rise among women on quest for perfect breasts

    • Women now resorting to surgery to alter size or shape of the areola - the darker area surrounding the nipple
    • Performed under either local or general anaesthetic
    • Leaves minimal scarring
    • Lateysha Grace from MTV's The Valleys is considering it


    When most people think of breast surgery, they envisage augmentations or reductions.

    But another cosmetic procedure is on the rise among women desperate for 'perfect' breasts.

    Areola reduction surgery is aimed at women who are unhappy with either the size or shape of their areolae, the brown or pink area surrounding the nipple.




    Some women believe their areolae are too wide, raised, non-circular or uneven in colour and are now resorting to surgery to tackle the problem.




    The procedure is performed by removing a circular area of the outer area of the areola and bringing in the skin around it to reduce and tighten it.

    Absorbable stitches are used inside the areola to reduce the diameter. In many cases, surgeons will use a permanent stitch which they place deep in the breast tissue to prevent the areola from widening after surgery.



    Helena, 33, who lives in London, who had been hiding her nipple insecurity for years was ecstatic when she heard about the surgery.

    She said ‘As soon as I hit puberty I realised my nipples were unlike other girls. They just got bigger and bigger – and they were much darker than my friends’ nipples.

    ‘Getting changed for swimming was mortifying – I was worried everyone was looking at me.

    ‘My first boyfriend jokingly compared them to Hob Nob biscuits. He meant it fondly but that description stayed with me – and I’ve never been able to move on from it. I’ve felt self-conscious with every man I’ve ever undressed in front of.

    ‘They have also been compared to Scotch pancakes. They are so disproportionately large - it makes me so paranoid.


    'I don’t feel at all sexy with my top off. I can’t imagine how any man could find them attractive.

    ‘My friend told me her nipples got larger and darker when she was pregnant and breastfeeding. The very thought fills me with fear.

    ‘I’d never heard about nipple reduction surgery before - I thought I was stuck with them.

    ‘Now that I know it exists I’m going to save up to have it done.’



    And Helena is not alone - Leteysha Grace, of MTV's The Valleys, is considering the surgery after suffering at the hands of bullies.
    Leteysha was horrified by the onslaught of abuse she received on Twitter after she appeared topless in a Zoo magazine shoot.
    Speaking to Heat magazine, she said: 'I'm having my nipples corrected because I'm not happy with the way my boobs look.
    'I can't even take my bra off during sex. I don't know if I'll still have sensitivity after the surgery, but, to be honest, I don't really care.'

    However, a loss of sensation isn't the main issue with this type of surgery.

    Miles Berry, co-author of The Good Boob Bible explains: 'If too much skin is removed, scars can stretch so expectations are a key part of preoperative discussions.


    The average areola is approximately 4.5 cm in diameter. Sometimes an enlarged areola is caused by the natural sagging of breasts due to age or breast-feeding

    'However, I feel the trend is growing and results are usually very good, if the above points are taken into consideration.'

    Plastic surgeon Dr. Yannis Alexandrides, founder of clinic 111 Harley Street, said of the surgery: 'Women who are self conscious because they have large areolae, need not worry because there is a simple correction that can be performed under local anaesthetic.

    'An average areola is approximately 4.5 cm in diameter. Sometimes a large areola goes together with natural sagging of breasts due to age or breast-feeding.

    'If you want to have a breast reduction or a breast lift done, the areola may be reduced at the same time to the desired size. An areola reduction can also be performed without additional surgery.

    'Through an incision in the outer part of the nipple of the areola, the pigmented skin around the nipple or areola is removed. This procedure may leave a small scar around the areola.

    'An areola reduction does not cause any problems with future breast feeding.'

    SMH alright. How fucking vain would you have to be to think everyone is laughing at your nipples? I tend not to ponder my nipples that much, but maybe that's just me. Or maybe I have perfect nipples, I dunno.

    Fuck off with this "bullies" shit. If you get your gear off and people make comments about you, that's a critique, not bullying. Soon nobody will be allowed to have an opinion because if 2 people disagree then one of them must be a bully.

    If I could snap my fingers and change my nips, I would, but surgery? Not so much, no.

    ^^I'm with you. I would love nice, round, firmer boobies, yet part of me thinks, "I've made it to 40 this far, why bother now?"

    I don't want to be the old lady from Summer Rental, who shows off her new set to everyone she sees. Problem is, she was probably the same age as I am now!

    FUCKING INSANE.

    I swear, this degree of both stupid AND crazy makes me feel downright violent. What is the matter with these bitches? Wah wah you took your shirt off on Twitter (stupid part one, we won't even get into that) and a bunch of anonymous internet assholes made fun of you...so WHAT. BFD. Who WANTS people like that to like them?!?

    Sometimes I despair for the human race. Empty meaningless vanity over intimate pleasure? My god.

    I love my ginormous nips. And may I say my lovers have enjoyed them very very much.
