Nipple enhancement with dermal fillers is a new, effective way to perk up your bosom and enhance the aesthetic features of your breasts. The best way to accentuate this bodily feature is by injecting hyaluronic acid (HA) into the nipple area. Recent studies have shown that this procedure is a safe and efficacious way to achieve stable nipple projection. (1) Dermal fillers are the second most common nonsurgical aesthetic procedure performed on women with an estimated 58% increase in injection prevalence over the past 5 years. (2) Not only that, but in recent years celebrity trend-setters such as Kendall Jenner have influenced more and more women to choose this treatment option as a way to proudy embrace their femininity. Patients in Indianapolis put their trust in board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kimberly Short for their body beautification needs. As a female medical professional, Dr. Short is particularly sensitive to the aesthetic needs of her patients, and provides expert care with a precise, feminine touch.

With recent developments in figure-complementing procedures such as nipple enhancement, and frequent celebrity endorsements keeping them in the limelight, HA fillers have continued to branch out from their role of simply correcting facial wrinkles and lines, for which they are best known. Naturally occurring in the body, hyaluronic acid serves a vital role to retain skin moisture and help smooth skin texture. It is commonly found in our skin, eyes, and connective tissues. Remarkably, skin HA accounts for 50% of total body hyaluronic acid. (3) 

Types of HA Fillers

In the right hands, dermal fillers are safe and effective cosmetic treatment options. (4) The experienced medical professionals at The Gillian Institute offer a selection of HA fillers that can be utilized during your nipple enhancement procedure.


Smooth in consistency, Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid gel that restores skin volume, smooths away wrinkles and folds, and can be used to change the appearance of other areas of the body, such as the nipples. Incorporating Hylacross™ technology, for a longer lasting and softer feeling product, Juvéderm is a versatile treatment to contour and volumize targeted areas.


Restylane is a natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores youthful appearance by plumping moderate to severe facial wrinkles that furrow at the corners of the mouth. Requiring no skin test, it is also a safe, effective option for nipple enhancement.


Part of the Restylane family of dermal fillers, Perlane is another HA injectable which can be used in nipple enhancement. Typically, it corrects moderate facial folds and wrinkles, and can also be used in lip augmentation. Perlane differs from Restylane as it has larger particles for deeper injection, providing extra fullness for deeper folds and wrinkles.
