There are some trends that make you wonder “who in the world started this?”  Many times the most intriguing crazes were started by the glamorous people in the Hollywood spotlight.

Women's Breast and Asymmetry


One interesting trend for women is having cosmetic surgery on their nipples. Celebrity fashion has become more and more risque, accentuating features in a way that wasn’t as accepted in the past.

Some women are not afraid to wear see-through clothing that reveals more than just their cleavage.  The desire to have every square inch of their body looking symmetrical and flawless is why this surgery has jumped in popularity.

In this post, a plastic surgeon from New York City discusses the increase in women asking for nipple correction surgery:

‘Designer nipples’ set to be the troubling cosmetic trend of 2017

In as little as six months, Dr Norman Rowe, a plastic surgeon based in New York City, says that the weekly number of nipple patients has more than quadrupled, from four a week to around 18.

“Nothing is above cosmetic surgery now, people are looking at every detail. It’s not enough now to get a breast augmentation or rhinoplasty – women want to fine-tune every element. And these days, that’s possible.”

Asymmetry is something we all deal with. In general, most humans have features that are not identical on both sides of their body, but it comes down to the degree of imbalance and loss of self esteem as to whether surgery is warranted.

Plastic surgeons in California and all across the world have methods that can display where the lack of symmetry is. Some have simple methods and others use high tech 3D visualization equipment, which is becoming more the norm in this technological world.

The following doctor discusses asymmetry and shows a simple method of distinguishing features that are slightly off and those that are highly irregular:

Back to the original topic of asymmetry in the breast area. The concern for some women is not just their nipples, but the size of the areolas, which is the dark skin around the nipples.

When the above doctor mentioned asymmetry being common…well breasts are no different.  Almost all women have a degree of imbalance in the size and shape of their breasts, which is noted in the next post:

In fact, breast asymmetry is so common that even popular celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Keira Knightley have opened up about their own uneven boobs. Knightley actually went beyond just talking about uneven breasts when she posed for some topless, unretouched photos. (A decision that made me love her even more, by the way.) But while I’ve pretty much always known uneven boobs are common, I’d never taken the time to find out why they’re common — until now.

Whether your natural asymmetry bothers you enough to wish for a change, that is up to each individual person.  Nipple correction surgery is requested mostly by women, but there are some men that have a larger areolas and nipples who want them reduced.

Everyone deserves to feel and look good. If you aren’t happy with your body, consult with a trusted cosmetic surgeon to discuss your options.
