You are still early on in the recovery process. Each side of your chest may heal at a different rate, so don't be alarmed. Follow your surgeon's post-op instructions to ensure the best outcome. If the puffy nipple persists after a few months, it may be possible that you need revision surgery. Puffy nipple is caused by glandular tissue which cannot be removed by liposuction. It must be manually removed. 

Best of luck!
