Radiesse Used to Enhance Nipples

Radiesse Used to Enhance Nipples

Radiesse, an injectable filler, is now a popular non-invasive procedure used to augment nipples.

Radiesse_logo_withtaglineIt seems many surgeons are using a new non-surgical technique to provide nipple enhancement.

The technique involves using an injectable filler called Radiesse in breast augmentation or reduction procedures to enhance the shape and size of the nipple. Specifically, the filler can help create a visible balance between the size of the areola and the size of the nipple.

Radiesse is a calcium-based gel normally used to correct facial wrinkles and restore tissue volume. But some surgeons say it can also smooth out the texture of the nipple and give it more volume. This can be helpful after a breast augmentation or reduction that improve the breast but leaves the nipple area looking disproportionate.

Using filler injections can also reduce the appearance of scarring on the breast so it looks more natural and aesthetically pleasing.   Currently there are no real scientific studies on the safety and effectiveness of the technique. Patients interested in nipple augmentation should discuss the procedure with a board certified plastic surgeon before choosing to undergo breast surgery.
