Science Hoax of the Week – The Nipple Transplant Slimming Technique

This was originally printed in Felix however, has been expanded on here.

The ficticious Dr. Jonas Zizlesse, M.D., P.A., F.A.C.S.

“Why would you want to diet? It’s hard! You can’t eat what you want when you want!” It’s an appealing case made by the website of Dr Zizlesse. However, this hoax website (viewable here) gives a rather unappealing alternative to dieting, nipple transplants. The theory is that by transplanting nipples onto rolls of fat you tap into societies fixation with breasts, turning the obese into multi-mammary jordan-esque glamour models. It declares in their emails that “FAT IS ONLY UGLY UNTIL YOU PUT A NIPPLE ON IT!”.

Thankfully Dr Zizlesse and the ‘Nipple Addition Surgery’ are completely fabricated having been made up by persistent internet satirist and prankster Hyperdiscordia.

Here are a few before and after shots from the “treatment”
