So...you got gyno removed to take your shirt off, but really now you have a different problem.

This is what hit me recently...are the scars worth having no puffy nipples?

If you are in shape or you are known to work out, tell them you went for a run and your nipples chafed against your shirt.  I ran a marathon last year, and it happens to people all of the time.  I doubt people will notice the othe scars enough to ask.

Try dermablend its a foundation used for covering birthmarks and tatoos. It really works well. Try ebay they quite often have it on there.

I would take a 2'' scar down the middle of my chest instead of puffy nips
