Further progress in male nipple positioning

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 […]

Towards a robust nipple detector

Increases in raw computing power and novel algorithmic techniques have enabled outstanding advances in image processing since 1999, when Drs. Forsyth and Fleck developed the first computerised system for Automatic Detection of Human Nudes. Now, researchers at the Institute for Infocomm Research, I²R (pronounced as i-squared-r), which is part of A*STAR, Singapore, have refined the […]

Divine Proportions in male nipple re-positioning

For aesthetic reasons, plastic surgeons are sometimes required to re-position male nipples – after dramatic weight-loss for example. In such a case they are presented, in effect, with a substantially blank canvas. But the presently accepted methods for calculating ideal nipple locations are far from straightforward. “Currently available guidelines create areolas that are too large, […]
