Puffy Nipples

Puffy nipples are not a medical term but a descriptive term that describes a certain gynecomastia condition. Puffy nipples are one of the most common forms of gynecomastia and usually will occur in adolescence. The breast gland tissue typically accumulates underneath the nipple areolar-complex and may often extend beyond this area. This concentrated breast tissue then acts to push the nipple areolar-complex outward to form a cone type shape, which appears puffy, hence, puffy nipples. This type of gynecomastia can be slight or significant. Men and boys have difficulty even wearing T-shirts due to the obvious nature of this condition. Fortunately, male breast reduction surgery is the solution.

Each male breast reduction case is treated individually. The results of these surgeries are typically excellent because the patient is usually young with good skin contraction.

It is very important to have a well trained and experienced plastic surgeon perform your surgery. A gynecomastia specialist will know how much breast tissue to remove and how to create the best masculine contours of the chest.
