my understanding is that puffy nipples are a form of gynecomastia as well.

Puffy Nipple appearance is caused by a gynecomastia gland. If you can feel a hard lump behind your nipple then you have gynecoamstia, regardless of size.

A good test is to put your hand behind your head and with your pincers, squeeze the nipple from both sides and if the fingers meet, it means you have fat only, but if something solid prevents them from meeting then it's a gyne gland.

There is a certain amount of subjectivity to the diagnosis of gynecomastia. All men have some gland tissue beneath the aerola. This is normal. Gynecomastia is an excessive amount of glandular tissue. Here is where the subjectivity begins...If the size of your breasts bother you and it is persistent, then for all intents and purposes you have gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia is, by definition, excessive tissue on the chest -- which may be all gland, all fat, or in most cases, a mix of the two.

If puffy nipples appear on a skinny guy, it is still gynecomastia because it is the growth of the breast tissue under the areola which makes it "puff" out.

In essence, by definition, if you have puffy nipples, you have gynecomastia.

Puffy Nipple Gynecomastia is one form of gynecomastia or female breasts on men. It is the same concept as a pubescent female breast. This structure on a female body is still called a breast. That is why, even subtle gynecomastia, is still gynecomastia. If you are asking if the contour problem will have gland: all mammals both male and female have gland, it is part of being mammal. The Anatomy of Puffy Nipple Gynecomastia consists of gland, fat, and skin in all cases. As that demonstration shows, the contributing factors can vary, but all 3 will be there. A fourth potential deforming factor for patients after surgery is scar tissue as demonstrated in this Puffy Nipple Complication after Gynecomastia Surgery.

Hope this helps,
