Concerns after gynecomastia surgery…
Patient should also remember that removal of too much tissue at the time of corrective gynecomastia surgery may result in problems ( deformities) that are challenging to correct. Surgeons must balance their desire to achieve the patient's goals (usually as flat a chest contour as possible) with efforts to avoid over resection and contour deformity.
Continue to follow up with your plastic surgeon who will always be your best resource when it comes to accurate assessment and advice. Best wishes.

Hi, and thank you for the question. I think 6 months is too soon to make a real judgment as there inevitability be some residual swelling. After 12 months things become more or less stable and then, decisions can be made. I would follow the advice of your plastic surgeon.
What causes puffiness?
Chest wall muscle does not cause the classic puffy nipple position. The excess gland does. A little bit of gland needs to be preserved for support of the skin, or else you'll get a crater deformity. Sometimes people develop scar tissue beneath the nipple areola skin. That could be the case with you, or perhaps you still have a little too much gland left behind. In my opinion, 6 months is long enough to wait to see the final result. Discuss the possible need for revision surgery with your surgeon; you may be a candidate. Best of luck.
