Four months is still with in healing time post surgery, I usually give patient six months before evaluating results. Areas of firmness around the surgical site are not uncommon and are usually scar tissue. This can be massaged lightly to help dissolve. Give yourself a little more time but consult your surgeon again if you were still having concerns. #scartissue #Postop
I am sorry to hear about your concerns after gynecomastia surgery. Your surgeon will always be your best resource for accurate diagnosis, advice, and/or meaningful reassurance. It will be your best interest to allow for at least 6 months to one year to pass after surgery before evaluating the final outcome of the procedure performed. At that point, it will be possible to determine whether any residual "mass" is related to residual breast tissue or maturing scar tissue. Treatment of course will vary depending on this diagnosis. Again, key will be close follow-up with your surgeon and ongoing patience once acute complications have been ruled out. Best wishes.
