It is possible that you have residual tissue under the nipple. That may require exploration and removal of the tissue. 

Seek a plastic surgeon with specialty training in #gynecomastia surgery, has great photos, and is an expert in male breast reduction.

Expectations After a Gynecomastia Revision

Each patient is unique and previous #results are not a guarantee for individual outcomes. As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. With any surgical procedure, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you during your consultation.

It is very difficult to make a determination from the photos.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of body contouring procedures and male breast reductions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Based on the pictures you may have room for improvement. Both liposuction of the chest and re-excision of the gland to get you flatter
