All the best,
Post Gynecomastia with puffy nipples.
Thanks for your question and photos. It is hard to tell how puffy your nipples are. Like the other physicians have said, they don't seem puffy, but that changes based on nipples. You scarred well. Sometimes, when nipples appear puffy after surgery is because some of the fibrofatty breast tissue was left behind. Normally a 1cm area should be left underneath the nipple to make sure it does not indent but if too much remains, then they may seem puffy. Some before pictures would definitely help in your assessment. I recommend expressing your concerns to your plastic surgeon. Good Luck.
All the best,

Based on the pictures provided, I'm not able to easily see the puffiness that concerns you. You are only 4 months out from surgery, so it may just be swelling. I recommend you visit with your surgeon, who can then examine you, and determine if there is extra fat or glandular tissue present and what can be done about it. Best of luck!
