I recently had gynecomastia surgery (3 weeks ago). The sutures on my left areola broke prematurely. This led to an infection (1 week ago), which I now have under control. Unfortunately, the infection ate away some of my areola. Right now there's a scab over the damaged space. My question is: how will this heal? Will my areola 're-generate' itself or will it heal as breast skin? The space also craters in a bit (i.e., doesn't follow the dome shape of my areola when viewed from a bottom angle). I am also wondering about possible revision options.
