If it was merely some scar tissue or residual fibrous gland tissue that was left behind, that can be taken care of fairly easily with a revision procedure.  However, your photos indicate that there may be more going on than just that.  You seem to have a scar around your one areola, and the other seems to have some sloughing of the skin.  Then you have a separate area of skin that seems to have scarring as well. You need to be examined by a board certified plastic surgeon.

The pictures posted show lots of problems.

The incisions used are around the entire nipple areola, this is more than a gynecomasia incision.

You need to be evaluated by  Board Certified Plastic Surgeon (American Board of Plastic Surgery).
