I had breast implants and an aerola reduction surgery 2 years ago. My concern is why are my aerolas still puffy?

Puffy nipple after an areolar reduction.
The most common reason is having a excessive amount of skin inside the circular scar. Often, this is easily corrected with a simple excision in the office. Depending upon how the areolar reduction was done, there may be a "cerclage" suture which is contributing to the issue.
