The clinic’s chief physician Dr. Amin Kalaaji was interviewed by Page2.no about the American trend of reducing nipples. During the interview, he shares his experience on the demand for this type of operation in Norway, highlights important aspects and mentions what to consider when considering this.
“Basically it has to do with the proportions of the different parts of the breast, such as the size of the breast, the hanging and the diameter of the mamilla (areola). Asymmetry, ie inequality between the sides, may be one of the reasons. It is important to specify that it is not the nipple or nipple itself, but the brown field around – areola or mamilla. Among other things, this field has an intimate significance for both genders, and I believe that at least the size does not mean the best, «says Amin.
Amin Kalaaji says that one must keep in mind that the operation leaves scars, and that it is important to always consider the pros and cons. “You should also be careful about all interventions that are about designing. This is where the danger lies, one must rather look at one’s own needs. If you feel the need, you can make an assessment. «
