i had a consult with a plastic surgeon yesterday and he said that the gland under my nipples is very small. And that evey man has a little bit of gland and its not gynecomastia. You cant feel it unless i contract my muscles. And its about the size of the peanut. But its still the cause for my puffy nipples, because i have no fat. So i dont know what to do. Isit still gynecomastia but just a very mild case. and i need to only have a very small amount removed. Ive had it for 6 years now.

Different Causes for Puffy Nipples
Another possible explanation is a condition called tuberous breast, which is more common in females, but can also affect men. A tuberous breast will usually have an enlarged, “puffy” nipple areolar complex, often with thinned areolar skin which bulges outward, thus appearing puffy. A tuberous nipple areolar complex can appear puffy with little or no underlying gynecomastia.
The appropriate treatment for your puffy nipples would depend on the specific diagnosis. I would recommend that you see another surgeon in your area that is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, who can sort things out for you.
I hope this is helpful.Good luck!
