Hello and thank you for your question. The hardest part of gynecomastia in patients who a lot of excess skin is getting the skin to retract and redrape nicely. It appears as though you have a depression underneath the nipple that is caused by the skin creasing once the gland has been removed. This may contract over the next few months but you may need a revision.
