Puffy Nipples / Pure Glandular gynecomastia male breast reduction
Glandular gynecomastia is best treated with gland excision. Incision is done at the junction of the pigmented areola and normal skin. This will treat the puffy nipples/areola you are referring to.

How to get rid of puffy nipples gynecomastia male breast tissue localized fat vaser liposuction
Thank you for your question regarding puffy nipples. Puffy nipples are probably due to gynecomastia and could also be due to localized fat underneath the nipples. I would suggest VASER liposuction. The VASER liposuction helps to melt breast tissue and achieve a flat chest. As opposed to regular liposuction, is the VASER is far superior for the permanent elimination of dense breast tissue commonly associated with puffy nipples. Please seek a board certified, experienced plastic surgeon for male breast reduction with VASER liposuction. If you have any questions about male breast reduction, please feel free to contact my office.

Gynecomastia is the usual cause for puffy nipples. Many men get this during adolescence, and it can go away on its own. If it does not, surgery is usually the only answer. This can occasionally be performed without general anesthesia to reduce the costs, but usually removal of the tissue under the nipple is combined with liposuction under general anesthesia.
Glandular gynecomastia and enlarged nipples
This is a fairly common problem in young men after going through puberty. The best treatment is resection of the tissue with reduction of the areola size. This involves an incision and scar around the areola but this usually heals very well since that is a natural border between the skin and darker tissue.
The treatment of puffy nipples is the removal of the tissue under the areolas. There is no non surgical treatment that works. Diet, exercise, and weight changes will not improve the problem. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia if it is small enough.
Some posible solutions
- "Puffy Nipple Areola Complex" is among the most common forms ofgynecomastia. This gland and/or adipose tissue accumulation can be located under the areola or can be slightly extended outside the areola, causing the areola to appear dome shaped.This form of Gynecomastia can be found in all age groups but is more common in young adults.
- As each case is different, it is vital that a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in male breast surgery is consulted. The surgeon should determine if the patient is a suitable candidate for male breast reduction by liposuction or glandular excision. It is crucial to have a plastic surgeon who is well-versed in the gynecomastia condition can determine if there is firm breast tissue beneath the areola that is causing the nipples to project (which is often the case), and if so, how much of this glandular tissue can be removed to create a flat appearance.
