Why??

My teenage son has huge puffy nipples. Doc says its hormones, but I know a guy from high school who had the same thing and it never went away. Anyone else know about this or have any useful un-snarky suggestions on reducing them without surgery?


he's not obese, he sits right at 15% body fat.

Uhm, sorry no idea. Ask for a second opinion??  What does your son think? Go by what will make him feel better.

Why are you looking at your son's nipples?

He says if it lasts longer than his freshman year he wants surgery. I am behind his decision, I just with there was a less invasive method.

Puffy Nipples in Men & Teen Boys: Get Rid of Without Surgery

Men & Teen Boys Can Get Rid of Puffy Nipples Without Surgery

Jillita Horton
Puffy nipples kill the look of a man's chest, and teen boys can also suffer from puffy nipples. When I say puffy nipples, I mean precisely that:

Puffy nipples. "Puffy nipples" does not refer to "gyno," "man boobs" or "moobs," which are when a man has what appears to be breasts. A man (or teen boy) can have puffy nipples yet otherwise have a perfectly flat chest, that is, no breasts.

I'm a certified personal trainer. To get rid of puffy nipples, a man or teen boy must do several things, and this information comes from a thread on how to get rid of puffy nipples. It's a lengthy thread so I have summed it up in this article.

After you read how to get rid of your puffy nipples, I do recommend that you click the link at the conclusion of this article (page 2) so you can read the entire thread.

According to my background as a fitness expert, and according to the thread, a sure-fire way to get rid of puffy nipples in men is to 1) Get your body fat percentage below 10 percent, 2) Accomplish this with hardcore strength training and intense cardio, and 3) Eat a "clean" diet consisting of quality protein, complex carbohydrates, very little sugar, and a restriction on processed foods.

Otherwise, learn to live with your puffy nipples until 1) You come up with the money to have the fat under them surgically removed (insurance will not cover this), 2) You realize that there is no magic cream that will get rid of puffy nipples, and 3) You get sick of wearing double shirts and realize that puffy nipples will not magically go away.

Do not starve yourself to get your body fat under 10 percent. If you're already on the thin side, or if you already think you are skinny, this does not mean that your body fat is under 10 percent! You might be "skinny fat." This is when a person appears thin, but has a high proportion of fat relative to muscle. A skinny guy can be soft and flabby, because he has little muscle development.

You must change your body composition, and this can be achieved with serious strength training, preferably bodybuilding-style, plus vigorous cardio to further strip down fat, and a clean diet to support your workouts and recovery from workouts.

One man on the thread, however, recommends lipoderm ultra, claiming that it has gotten rid of his puffy nipples. Another man says that if a cream works, it will work only in combination with hard training and strict dieting (replace the cheeseburger and fries with a tuna salad and yogurt). The sausage and English muffin with butter for breakfast get replaced with egg whites and oatmeal, or with a protein shake.

Another man recommends vitamin B6. But if it were this easy -- simply popping a vitamin or smearing on creams -- puffy nipples wouldn't be such a prevalent problem amongst men and teen boys.

Go to a gym during its most crowded time. See if you can spot any buff men who have puffy nipples. Sticking to a serious training program, along with giving up the junk food diet, won't be easy, but you just have to decide what's more difficult: living with puffy nipples and being embarrassed about them, or finally doing something great for your health that can actually get rid of this undesirable look.
