Lumps Following Gynecomastia Surgery
As you heal, the area may feel “lumpy” and irregular. This, too, decreases with time, and massaging these areas will help soften the scar tissue. The #compression garment helps reduce the swelling, and the longer it is worn, the more quickly you will #heal. It can also assist in the retraction of the skin. If you have any concerns about #healing, its best to ask questions of your surgeon or their nursing staff.

It is impossible to say without an in-person consultation. It could be scar tissue or remaining fatty or glandular tissue
To be sure, return to see your surgeon or see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
