Since 2009, progress has been made in devising techniques for determining ideal male nipple positions. (see previous Improbable item on Divine Proportions in male nipple re-positioning) A research team from the department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, have now contributed to the body of work – noting that :
“Although a need exists for plastic surgeons to consider nipple position in men in certain situations, literature pertaining to the anatomic features of male nipples is limited.”
To redress this limitation, the team performed an empirical study with 50 Japanese men between February 2010 to May 2014, and have subsequently published the results of their new research in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, 2015, Vol 35(2) see: ‘An Anatomic Study of Nipple Position and Areola Size in Asian Men’ (Shogo Kasai, MD; Yusuke Shimizu, MD, PhD; Tomohisa Nagasao, MD, PhD; Fumio Ohnishi, MD; Toshiharu Minabe, MD, PhD; Akira Momosawa, MD, PhD; and Kazuo Kishi, MD, PhD)
