It’s time to talk about the “nipple game” that has been circulating the web. From Lauren Sanchez, the girlfriend of Jeff Bezos, to Kendall Jenner and Bell Hadid, these celebrities are embracing their model nipples in full force. In fact, the latest trend amongst models is nonsurgical nipple enhancement. Haute Beauty Expert Dr. Anna Avalianisat down with Haute Beauty to discuss how her patients are able to achieve ‘model nipples,’ in the span of minutes.

The procedure takes 5 minutes to do and is done via an injection of a hyaluronic acid dermal filler to keep the nipples and areola looking erect and plump.
Does breast nipple filler injection hurt?
The procedure can be very comfortable when done by an expert and proper anesthesia. Dr.Avaliani offers a wide array of comfort measures from cryo cooling to injection numbing to nitrous oxide. Some may need just one and others may need all it depends on pain tolerance.
How long do fillers injections for nipples last?
With any dermal filler, the duration depends on the type of filer and the amount used as well as the metabolism of the person receiving it.
It is good to assume the duration of this procedure to be good for 1-2 years or longer.
What kind of dermal filler is used for nipple enhancement procedures?
It has to be a soft and flexible filler to give the most natural result as well as a feeling, Dr.Avaliani prefers to use natural expression technology of Restylane family fillers like Restylane Kysse and Restylane Refyne for a nipple enhancement procedure.
Will dermal filler injection make my nipples bigger and stretched?
Absolutely not! The area is simply enhanced not changed.
Who is a great candidate for nipple injections using dermal fillers?
Literally, anyone is a good candidate as long as nipples are present, but the patients who can benefit from this confidence-boosting procedure are girls with small nipples, inverted nipples, previously pursed nipples that may look deflated, etc. Expert consultation is a must to determine whether this procedure is right for you.
Can fillers be injected into nipples if there is nipple piercing present?
It depends on the size of the nipple the type of piercing, as well as the desired result wanted. This can only be accurately assessed and discussed during an in-person consultation.
HAUTE BEAUTY EXPERT ANNA AVALIANI, MD, IS A PLASTIC surgeon on the Upper East Side of New York City specializing in cosmetic and laser surgery. She is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, and she is a diplomat of the American Board of Medical Specialties. Dr. Avaliani’s unique approach is recognized locally and internationally by her loyal patient following. Her high-end clientele includes many models, actors, TV hosts, celebrity makeup artists, hairstylists, fashion designers, billionaires, and other influential people. Dr. Avaliani is a GAIN national injection trainer for Galderma and is proud to be part of a team of leaders in new innovations for facial harmonization techniques. Chin definition has long been a key area in her practice, and now the FDA has approved chin injections as well. Dr. Avaliani has been offering her patients nonsurgical chin augmentation procedures for the last five years.
Facial harmonization and facial balancing are now gaining more attention than overfilled and overcorrected cheeks. The recent approval of Restylane Defyne for chin augmentation in February has generated excitement in the aesthetic industry. Here, Dr. Avaliani explains how a nonsurgical chin augmentation is performed to achieve a defined jawline and slimmer face, and to make a double chin disappear.
Haute Beauty: What is nonsurgical chin augmentation?
Anna Avaliani: It’s also known as a chin filler injection or chin filler augmentation, which is done with an injection of a dermal filler. HB: Who is an ideal candidate for nonsurgical chin augmentation?
AA: Any person who feels like their side pr ofile is undefined, or maybe they feel like they have a double chin or their nose looks too big in proportion to their face, or they feel like they have a lot of sad lines around their mouth. Chin definition is something that can easily balance and frame someone’s face.
Some of the amazing, life-changing benefits of nonsur gical chin augmentation include:
• It can make the face look slimmer and longer
• It creates semipermanent contouring
• It can make the face look more masculine, if that is what a patient desires
• It can give more definition and support
• It can make the face look younger and creates less saggy skin in the neck area
• It improves the profile
• It improves the appearance of a double chin
HB: Why has Restylane Defyne been chosen as the best filler for nonsurgical chin augmentation?
AA: Having a very stiff chin may make one feel slightly awkward, and it may look obvious that something was done to the chin. Restylane Defyne has a natural expression technology that moves with you as you speak and maintains facial balance and harmonization without being obvious. This product is simply a great hidden secret in the hands of injection artists. HB: How long do the results last? AA: The exact duration varies from person to person and is dependent on a few factors, including:
• The type of filler (HA or other products, or even the type of HA)
• The injected volume
• The metabolism of the patient
• Location, though the chin is a pretty solid structure that doesn’t move as much as the lips, for example
• The average duration is about one year. If you need two to four syringes to achieve the desired result, then in 12 months you may need just 1 or 2 ml to maintain the results.
HB: How much does it cost?
AA: The cost varies depending on the practice, the experience of the provider, the injection technique used, and the amount of product used. An in-person consultation is the best way to get a cost estimate.
HB: How many syringes are needed?
AA: That’s dependent on the individual’s anatomy. The average amount injected during clinical trials was between 4-6 ml of product; 5 ml or 5 cc of a product is only a tiny teaspoon, not a lot.
Some people will only need one or two syringes if they already have good chin support, but people who need more support will need more product. It may take more than one visit to achieve a “happy spot,” which is the recommended approach for safety and good patient outcomes.
HB: How long is the recovery?
AA: The recovery is pretty uneventful. There might be a feeling of tightness and soreness for one or two days after the procedure. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, soreness and bruising, which usually only last for a few days.
HB: How long does the procedure take?
AA: It can take 5 to 10 minutes, depending on patient comfort and the number of syringes used, as well and the hand and expertise of the provider.
HB: Does it hurt?
AA: There is absolutely no pain or discomfort. The topical numbing and the lidocaine inside the HA filler cause only slight discomfort. It’s probably the easiest and most comfortable area for the patient to receive an injection.
HB: What does nonsurgical chin augmentation do for men?
AA: Strong chins have always been considered attractive and powerful. A strong chin for a male patient is almost as important as having luscious, full lips for a female patient.
HB: What about for women?
AA: It will balance their features, allowing for a longer, slimmer, and more defined look while creating support and removing a double chin and softening or erasing early jowls.
HB: How do I know what product is the best?
AA: The best product for you would be determined by your aesthetic provider at the time of your in-person consultation. Restylane Defyne is likely the best and only product on the market that offers support and flexibility at the same time. The two other
HA fillers that can be used for chin augmentation are Restylane Lyft and Juvederm Voluma.
HB: Do the results look similar to receiving a chin implant?
AA: The answer depends on whether the patient had realistic expectations and whether the provider was skilled in delivering the most amazing results. If the appropriate patient, with realistic expectations, comes to an injection expert, then the result can absolutely look like a chin implant, except the patient has no recovery, no scars, and no potential nerve damage. Surgery and nonsurgery cannot be considered the same, but in the best cases, they can be pretty close.

Haute Beauty Expert Dr. Anna Avaliani explains the top body brightening options to remove dark marks, scars, and bug bites for darker skin types.
Darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation and damage when exposed to certain treatments. This fact has caused extreme hesitation to proceed with all treatments. In the case of removing dark spots, experts will suggest using the key body brightening option – laser treatment.
Not all lasers are created equal. There are lasers that are designed specifically for darker skin types and vice versa. Many treatments for skin of color have been associate with limitations due to the fairly high side effect profile. In fact, lasers can cause burns, scars and could potentially make the skin turn darker or lighter. There are super aggressive lasers that are completely contradicted in people with darker skin types because they have the power to permanently destroy melanin in the skin, causing permanent discoloration and skin whitening.
PicoSure laser is FDA approved for skin types IV-VI, and is also cleared for the treatment of pigmentation disorders such as sunspots, dark spots, flat moles, melasma, birthmarks, Nevus of Otto are among just a few to name. PicoSure is also FDA cleared for acne scars, pore reduction, skin texture improvement, fine lines, and wrinkle reduction, and when in the hands of an expert, it can be performed on the entire body and even around the eyes.
Dr. Avaliani is the world-renowned PicoSure laser expert specializing in face and body laser rejuvenation and has developed her own treatment protocols using PicoSure to help her patients achieve the best results possible.
Under a standard laser setup, doctors can not perform any treatment that is around and on the lower eye area, upper eye, and eye-lid. To properly treat the upper eyelid area, the eye needs to be prepared with numbing drops. Intraocular laser shields must be inserted around the eye itself and under the eyelid area, so the eye is fully protected by the eye shield when the laser is operating and treating the area. If you rely on an expert at the time of treatment, your results are bound to be substantially greater than one could ever imagine.
