Swelling is Expected
Swelling after Surgery
Swelling after the surgery you have described typically lasts for about 6 weeks after surgery. After that 6 week mark, your wounds have strength to them, but you will continue healing and refining the area for 6 months to a year. I hope this helps!
Swelling Post Gynecomastia Surgery
Bruising and #swelling are normal and usually increase slightly after the removal of any tape or foam. The bruising will decrease over 3-4 weeks, but may last as long as 6 weeks. The majority of the swelling will be gone within the first 3-4 weeks. However, it may take 6-9 weeks to disappear completely. The compression garment helps reduce the swelling, and the longer it is worn, the more quickly you will #heal. But if this causes concern, its best to ask questions of your surgeon or their nursing staff.
