New York Post


Plastic surgery appears to be embedded in celebrity culture, especially among the infamous Kardashian family, with procedures such as lip injections, nose jobs, hip and bum implants, and boob jobs seemingly becoming the norm.

What has just come to our undivided attention however, is the rise of a new strange trend involving… wait for it… NIPPLE IMPLANTS. 

A recent New York Post video which involves a plastic surgeon explaining the rise of 'designer nipples' has come to light, and we're so shaken.

The video features an anonymous 28-year-old patient who is sitting in plastic surgeon Norman Rowe's exam room. The woman explains that she aspires to have nipples like Kendall Jenners:

"I love Kendall Jenner, and I love that she just doesn't wear a bra. You can't see her nipples, but you can see the pointiness."

"I think there's something really sexy and feminine about it," she says, lamenting the fact that her nipples never get hard.

"I think it would be really cool to just have protruding nipples all the time," continues. Rowe uses a hyaluronic acid-based filler to add volume to the nipples and to make sure that they can be seen through the woman's clothes.

Hydraulic acid fillers start at about $700 in price and usually last roughly two years. Rowe told Allure that cosmetic nipple procedures have been occurring for years;

"It recently became popular with patients desiring nipples like their favourite reality stars," he says. 

Patients also ask for "smaller areoles, smaller nipples, larger areoles, larger nipples, a change in colour or change in the shape of the areola, or any combination thereof," he says.

Darren M. Smith, another NYC plastic surgeon, prefers a different approach;

"I would generally guide patients towards a biocompatible implant-based solution as we have more control over this kind of procedure given the delicate nature of the surrounding anatomy,"

"I would exercise great caution before injecting fillers into the nipple as the risk of damaging these structures is real."

"Filler could clog milk ducts or inhibit blood supply to the nipple which could interfere with breastfeeding, sensation, or even damage the nipple itself."

Rowe, however, claims that the only risks involved are "getting too many compliments." Would you try it?



As news broke of Brad and Angelina's divorce this week, it was inevitable that Jennifer Aniston's name would be dragged into the furore.

And while the wider public has little issue with various memes purporting to know Jennifer's reaction to the news, they are less impressed with a national newspaper's decision to take the same approach.

Using an image of an ecstatic-looking Jen on their front page yesterday, the New York Post captioned it 'Brangelina: 2004-2016.'

Taking issue with their approach to the matter, Twitter users wasted no time calling the paper out on their front page.

"Why insert Aniston into these people's pain?" wrote one disgruntled social media user. "So cruel! Aniston & her husband are busy building a life of their own."

Offering a background into the snap which the newspaper ran, one Twitter user wrote: "Research it and you'll see that pic was from the day she placed her hand prints at Mann's Chinese Theater in 2011."

While many felt fury on Jennifer's part, another reader of the paper reminded the public that the situation is more than a celebrity tit for tat, writing: "Cover is not clever or funny."

"A family is breaking up. There are children involved. Show some compassion."

Hammering home their point, a fellow Twitter user added: "It's disgusting things like this that make journalism questionable."

We wonder what Jen would make of that front page.



A drop in Florida tourism and the still keenly-felt impact of Blackfish means SeaWorld is struggling. 

Indeed, a top theme park consultant has now said that the attraction may need a decade or more to recover from the release of the hard-hitting 2013 documentary.

Dennis Speigel, president of International Theme Park Services, said in conversation with the New York Post that SeaWorld's "imagery issues have not had enough time to go away," adding: "This is a ten-year turnaround."

The theme-park recently reported that attendance was off some 7.6 percent; there were fewer than 6million visitors in the most recent quarter – representing a 5.2 percent drop in revenue.

The drop-off also sparked a 13.2 percent decline in SeaWorld shares.

It was announced in March that SeaWorld was ending orca breeding and orca shows. 


It’s the eating plan that’s seriously in vogue: no meat, no dairy – just healthy, wholesome vegan meals and snacks.

But while eliminating processed foods and oodles of red meat, cheese and cream can probably only be a good thing, veganism can also be associated with orthorexia: a potentially damaging fixation on ‘clean’ eating.

One young woman who is a testament to that link is Jordan Younger, a 25-year-old blogger and author who boasts some 125,000 Instagram followers.

“The obsession with my diet took up my every waking hour,” Ms Younger told the New York Post this week. “It was stopping me from leading a normal life full of social activities and other interests.”

At 1.63cm tall, at her lowest she weighed just 47.5kg. She explains that while this isn’t “skeletal,” she was nevertheless “textbook example of an orthorexic”.

A native of LA, Ms Younger became vegan in her final year of college, not because of ethical reasons to protect animals, but after experiencing undiagnosed abdominal issues.

“In the beginning, it was very cleansing and detoxing, and I had this rush of adrenaline,” she says.

However, she soon found that she was exhausted all the time. That and her bloating and constipation issues returned. Still, she continued to follow her strict regimen and was compelled to religiously post everything she ate on her popular Blonde Vegan blog, which she kicked off shortly after graduation.

That pattern could have proved fatal, but her turning point came in June 2014 when she admitted to a friend that her periods had stopped.

The pal, who had also suffered from orthorexia, recommended she reintroduce fish into her diet. Within a week of eating a small portion of salmon, Jordan was menstruating again.

A dietician later confirmed that fish and eggs would boost her poor nutrient levels. Not wanting to lie to her fans, Ms Younger announced on the Blonde Vegan that she was “transitioning away from veganism.”

And that’s when all hell broke loose. Her site crashed and thousands of followers ditched her. She also received anonymous death threats. “It was shocking,” recalls Jordan.

Still, two months later, she relaunched as The Balanced Blonde, which now features a wider-ranging choice of tips and recipes.

“These days I live without a label, which is much more freeing,” she explains. She doesn’t even know her current weight, but considers herself a healthy size.

“I still eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and smoothies, but also fish, eggs and sometimes red meat.”

She even tucked into pizza and pasta on a recent trip to Italy. “Now I’m all about balance,” she says.

Jordan Younger is also the author of Breaking Vegan: One Woman's Journey From Veganism, Extreme Dieting, And Orthorexia To A More Balanced Life, priced at £12.99 from amazon.co.uk
