About Gynecomastia and Puffy Nipples Complex
The male breast is composed of glandular tissue and fatty tissue. An excess in either type of tissue can cause the chest to take on the look of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia can affect #men of all different body types. There are different types of #gynecomastia. Several common factors can cause gynecomastia including excessive levels of #estrogen, natural #hormone changes, use of recreational drugs or alcohol, medications and their associated side effects, and, various health conditions. Also, there are different types of #gynecomastia.
"Puffy Nipple Areola Complex" is among the most common forms of gynecomastia. 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 you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in male breast surgery. The surgeon should determine if you are a suitable candidate for male breast reduction by liposuction or glandular excision. It is also 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.
Thanks for the post and photos. It appears that you have puffy nipples which is due to excess breast tissue under the areolas. This cannot be treated without surgery. I recommend that you be seen by a plastic surgeon experienced in gynecomastia surgery to determine if there are any underlying causes. If not, then you would be an excellent candidate for surgery.

Correct puffy nipples without surgery
This can either be with surgery through a small incision around the areola (out nipple) or with laser liposuction.
Laser liposuction is effective but for puffy nipples alone, surgical excision is probably easier, less expensive and more precise.
