We have come a long way from when Janet Jackson had her infamous “nip slip” at the 2004 Super Bowl.

Now, having protruding nipples that are noticeable through women’s clothing is considered a sexy, feminine quality.

Celebrity models like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have helped make the sight of nipples more socially acceptable by displaying them on a regular basis..

This has given rise to a new trend: Women are now having their nipples injected with fillers to ensure they will not be overlooked.

The contour of erect nipples visible beneath clothing is considered to be a modest method of showing female sexuality, and can be achieved in a procedure that can be performed in less than 10 minutes. 

What Are Nipple Injections Made of?

Nipple injections for projection are most commonly performed with a hyaluronic acid-based filler that adds volume and contributes to a protruding nipple.

This dermal filler is made of a natural substance found in our body, most commonly in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes.

This filler is mostly known for its ability to plump up facial features.

What Are My Nipple Injectable Filler Options?

The two most common nipple injectable fillers are Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®.


Restylane® is typically used to help smooth wrinkles and restore volume to the cheeks and lips. This injectable modulator volumizes the tissues beneath the skin to lift and focally expand it.


JUVÉDERM® is typically used to address the facial signs of aging and counteract the loss of volume caused by decreasing skin elasticity. This filler is commonly injected into the cheeks, around the nose, mouth, and lips. 

Is Nipple Injection Surgery Safe?

Nipple injection surgery is safe and rarely results in significant complications.

One serious, but fortunately rare, complication that could possibly occur is when the filler is injected into a blood vessel. 

Vascular occlusion results when the blood supply is blocked, causing the tissue that is being supplied by the artery to die. 

You may also feel irritation and temporary discomfort following the procedure.

What Is the Cost of Nipple Fillers?

The cost of your nipple fillers surgery will vary depending on the quantity and type of product used.
