I'm 9 months after BA and my nipples always look hard, why?

I have a breast augmentation 9 months ago with 250cc HP round Mentor implants and since the day after BA my nipples always looked hard! They don't disturb me as I don't feel anything, but I have to always wear padded bras to cover them :( Is there any problems? At my monthly check-ups my surgeon told me that everything it's fine.

Projection, projection, projection....

Your breast implants are pushing your breast and nipple tissue forward and this has increased the projection (how far they stick out). Some people find projecting nipples to be attractive, but others are sensitive to a higher level of projection. There's a small round silicone cover that is very helpful to cover them and does a better job than a bra. Best, Dr. ALDO
