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.

Puffy Nipple Is Gynecomastia
One type of gynecomastia is referred to as "puffy nipples." This is when the excess tissue (typically gland) is confined to the borders of the areola. This will show more with contraction of the pectoralis or when your areolas are warm (after a hot shower), but will look better when stimulating the nipples or when they are cold. I recommend being evaluated by a plastic surgeon who is experienced in evaluating gynecomastia patients.
