10 Days Following 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.
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.
Need time for puffy nipples to resolve
Need time for puffy nipples to resolve. Many times puffy nipples in males is associated with gynecomastia. When the gynecomastia is corrected the nipples generally shrink down as well. You should be evaluated by a plastic surgeon for this condition and to review treatment options.

Yes it could be edema or swelling in the areolar areas. Allow a minimum of 3 months of healing time. Massages and external ultrasound therapy may help.
