For many men, the appearance of enlarged or puffy nipples can cause lowered self-confidence and even interfere with their favorite hobbies and activities. If this is the case for you, know that there are a number of surgical options that can help you get the smooth, more masculine chest you want.
Male Breast Reduction
In some cases, a condition called gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement, can be the cause of puffy nipples in men. To correct this, a skilled cosmetic surgeon, like Dr. Andan, can perform a male breast reduction surgery to remove excess glandular tissue, which can smooth and reshape the entire chest area, including your nipples.
If excess breast tissue and loose skin are also concerns for you, talk to Dr. Andan about adding Smartlipo™ to your male breast reduction procedure.
Nipple reduction surgery can reduce the size of your nipples without leaving behind obvious scars.
If Dr. Andan doesn’t feel that gynecomastia is the cause of your enlarged nipples, he or she may suggest a nipple reduction instead. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, and most men are able to return to work and other daily activities within a few hours after nipple reduction surgery.
Liposuction can be performed either on its own or in combination with another procedure to help get rid of puffy nipples and maximize your overall results. Dr. Andan can help you determine whether or not adding liposuction to your male breast reduction or nipple reduction procedure could complement your results and give you the best possible outcome.
