Healing After Gynecomastia Surgery
Thanks for the post. At 2 months you are still healing and the issues you are describing are relatively normal. Final results are between 6 and 12 months. If it continues to be a concern, I recommend you contact your plastic surgeon.

A collection of fluid under the skin occurs occasionally during the postoperative period. Aspiration of the fluid with a needle is frequently helpful. Secondary surgery is rarely necessary.
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.
Also, 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.

Thank you for your question.
It is difficult to determine as swelling may last several months.
I'd recommend booking a follow-up appointment with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss your concerns.
