what techniques did your PS use, and how did it turn out."Puffy Nipples"
mine is mild, and apparently "is extra skin" and not gland.
my PS dug out a pocket under my nipple so it is supposed to lay flat. anyone get it done this way.
Like i said before, im 18 days post op and it dosnt look good. puffed out again.
Also, has anyone had surgery and have the outcome look great right after, but then it never ever went back to the way it looked on the operating table? im really worried this may of happened to me. i cant stop thinking about it!
is a common public term for gynecomastia. Options for treatment depend on the problem to be sculpted.
The problem is the the term puffy nipples
is a phrase that mean so many different things to so many different people. Words just do not convey the actual problem very well - images do a little better, but still are not the same as an actual in office evaluation with your doctor.
Putting up pictures (using standard views before and after surgery)
is one way to discuss what the problem was before surgery and what has happened. Options depend on what is really going on.
Let us try to look what I mean by the problem of the words only descriptions. "Large nips", "puffy nipples," "puffed nipples," and "puffy nips" are a common terms many give to a problem that extends to the region about the areola. The nipple
is actually the central raised structure inside the pigmented areola.
"Puffed nipples" can be a problem for some that involves long nipples above the areola
where nipple reduction alone helps."Puffy Nipps"
can be a problem behind the areola that can take many forms. The deformity is usually a varying combination of fat and gland. The gland can be firm or soft, spread through fat, or be a condensed mass. There is a thin muscle under the areola skin
that can flatten tissue when stimulated. Unfortunately it is impractical to keep stimulating these muscles.
In many of these patients with "puffy nipples," there was no firm tissue under the areola, just fat and soft gland. Here is one example of puffy nipples in a muscular male.
Here is another example of puffed nipples
. Here is another patient with puffy nipple gynecomastia
"Puffy Nipples" can also be a combination of gynecomastia and big nipples
