After surgery many of us develop scar tissue and this gives the puffy nipples effect. Apparently after scar tissue heals up and is gone, so is the ptrotrusion of the nipples. Pretty sure I've read posts like that here, but I'd like to see the lucky ones talk about it. I know it's a long shot since most people who are happy with the surgery generally leave this site..

Everyone is different and has different surgery -- thus one cannot generalize about puffiness disappearing after surgery.  Sometimes it is swelling only; other times it may be scar tissue, which may slowly subside by itself or need some coaxing with an injection of cortisone.

Once people have a satisfactory result,  they quickly lose interest in this site and we never hear from them again.  The people who could best answer your question are no longer here.

Once in a while a person will hang around for a year or two after surgery to advise and reassure others. Unfortunately we do not have anyone at this time who fills that bill.

MOST LIKELY NOT ENOUGH GLAND WAS REMOVED. YOU MAY NEED SURGERY AGAIN. RESULTS FROM SURGERY ARE IMMEDIATE FROM DAY 1 if it's done correctly.
