You can find many examples of Surgery for Puffy Nipples on this link.  Typically skin shrinks very well for my patients such that skin reduction is not necessary.  The deformity is almost always a combination of gland and fat as you can see in the Puffy Nipple Anatomy.

Hope this helps,

You are young and not overweight.  You do have puffy nipples, which represents excess breast tissue directly beneath the areola.

You would do well with a simple excision of the excess tissue through a small incision around the edge of the areola.  This could be done under local anesthesia or with intra-venous sedation -- you do not require general anesthesia for this procedure. Removal of the excess tissue would flatten the nipples and the areolar diameter would decrease as well.

You are an ideal candidate for surgical treatment.

My nipples look pretty much exactly the same. I have surgery this saturday. My surgeon said he is doing pretty much exactly what Dr. Jacobs said. A incision around the areola then just take some of the gland out.

I most definitely would say yes, you dont look like you have much fat at all.
