My doctor is not available until next month so i would appreciate any help here. I did my surgery last week on 12 - 07 and today i have removed my bandages as i wanted to change them and i am a little worried about the aspect of the right side where my nipple is not placed in the center anymore. Will it take the original position after removing the stitches ( don't know if i will have to remove them or they will be dissolved ) ?

Stiching Concern after Gynecomastia Surgery
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.
