A recent study conducted by a group of plastic surgeons asked 131 participants to rate the attractiveness of various sized nipples.
It found that nipples that occupied 25 to 30 percent of the breast were rated the highest.
While, those larger than 50 percent of the breast were deemed too large by the majority of study participants.
The study concluded that patients with smaller sized nipples rated high in attractiveness than those with larger nipples.
This recent trend is seeing many patients request that their nipples be reduced to that of the size of the popular confectionary item, smarties. Of course trends are called trends for a reason in that what maybe popular right now may not be in several years time and so it is important to refrain from acting impulsively in such circumstances.
Nipple Correction has been a popular procedure for many years, it has been used traditionally to treat patients who are concerned about enlarged or inverted nipples or to reduce the size of the areola (the brownish coloured area around the nipple) and is commonly carried out along with a Breast Augmentation procedure.
Nipple Correction alone is a minor procedure and can help to restore confidence and body image by correcting the appearance of the nipple.
