i just had my gynecomastia surgery done a week ago. lipo and excision. my left nipple is hard and a little puffy, but chest is okay. while my right nipple is normal flat looking (a lot better than left). will my left nipple appearance now still change, since its only been a week? im quite worried. im thinking maybe its just the swelling? thank you.

Asymmetric healing common after gynecomastia surgery.
Regardless of the technique some asymmetry of the breast during gynecomastia convalescence is expected. This should improve with time.

Normal After Liposuction of Chest
You are only one week out of surgery. All that you describe sounds normal. Your chest contour will improve over the next 2-3 months. Continue to wear your compression garment because it is helpful to maximize your final result.
One week after gynecomastia surgery
At one week it is too early to tell how things will look in a few months. But they will undergo changes as the swelling dissipates.
