Hi doctor,

I am an 18 year old male. I had liposuction a year before for gynecomastia. I have been in perfect shape for a while. I have gained a bit of weight recently and noticed the development of puffy nipples. This is bothering me very much. I need some guidance. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • If the breast gland has been excised with the previous liposuction, then it is only fat and it can be reduced with re-lipo or diet and exercise.
  • If the gland was not excised, then it is residual gland and it has to be removed. Please consult your specialist doctor for physical examination and further management.
