Nipple Position from Excision
The excision technique is used on cases of gynecomastia where excess skin and glandular breast tissue must be removed and the areola or nipple needs reduction and repositioning to create a natural looking appearance. The incision patterns are determined by the specific condition of the patient.
There is a good chance that with the healing process still in progress your nipple position is still settling into its final place. Maturation of incisions and scars can take some time, but if you find yourself worried at all it would be a good idea to visit your surgeon to have the area examined to make sure that healing is progressing well. Good luck.
