Need time for puffy nipples to resolve

Need time for puffy nipples to resolve.  Many times puffy nipples in males is associated with gynecomastia. When the gynecomastia is corrected the nipples generally shrink down as well.  You should be evaluated by a plastic surgeon for this condition and to review treatment options.

Yes it could be edema or swelling in the areolar areas. Allow a minimum of 3 months of healing time. Massages and external ultrasound therapy may help.
