Puffy nipples

So I've always had puffy nipples and I thought maybe after I got implants they would sit flat, but they are still puffy they're great when I'm cold. when I bend over they're worse it's almost like my breast tissue falls into my areola... so my question is if there is a surgery to correct this? and if there is could you point me in the direction of before and after photos.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for your question.
    Without seeing any pictures, it's difficult to comment or advice whether your puffy nipples are within "normal limits" or whether there are some underlying traits of tuberous breasts involving areolar herniation giving the appearance of an enlarged, puffy or even herniated nipple areolar complex.
    Either way, an areolar reshaping procedure can be considered for solving your problem pending on the severity of your condition and your expectation of the surgical outcome.
    Feel free to submit an enquiry to my practice via PSF for further information if I can be of further assistance.
    Hope that helps.
    Best wishes

    Hi,

    It is difficult to assess you without seeing your pre and post operative photographs. However breast- augmentation patients with pre-operative slightly puffy nipples will often still have this "puffiness" following the insertion of implants.
