Nipple enlargement is a type of cosmetic procedure in which an individual wishes to have the size or the shape of the nipple enlarged. The most common way for this to occur is to graft skin from one area of the body to the nipple region. However, it is also possible to use fatty tissues from the breast to augment the size of the nipple itself. This procedure is invasive and has risks, including infection. Since each person's desired outcome is different, nipple enlargement procedures are tailor made to fit the individual's particular goal.
