Puffy nipple, Is it Gynecomastia or just puberty? (photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Some form of #Gynecomastia is experienced by up to 2/3 of boys going through #puberty. This form of gynecomastia is due to the surges in testosterone and estrogen which often lead to an imbalance of the testosterone:estrogen ratio.
In up to 75% of boys who develop pubertal gynecomastia, it will disappear without treatment within 2 years. In 90% of boys with pubertal gynecomastia, it will disappear without treatment within 3 years
If you have major concerns, please contact a #boardcertified #plasticsurgeon for an in-person consultation to discuss the best treatment options for your specific situation.
