Healing Time after Gynecomastia Surgery
Following surgery, your incisions will go through a maturation process. For the first few months they will be red and possibly raised and/or firm. As the scar matures, after 6-12 months, it becomes soft, pale, flat, and much less noticeable. You may experience numbness, tingling, burning, “crawling”, or other peculiar sensations around the surgical area. This is a result of the healing of tiny fibers which are trapped in the incision site. These symptoms will disappear. Some people are prone to keloids, which is an abnormal scar that becomes prominent. If you or a blood relative has a tendency to keloid formation, please inform the doctor. There is definitely a possibility that you are still experiencing some swelling or lumpiness after your revision procedure and it may take a little while for the healing to compete. If you are at all uncomfortable or concerned it would be a good idea to see your surgeon in person to ensure that the healing process is going well. Best of luck to you!
