Bleeding After Gynecomastia Surgeon
Thanks for the post and photos. Hematoma is a known risk of gynecomastia surgery. Things such as over-activity, blood thinning medications, or an underlying bleeding issue that was not known before surgery could be responsible. I would be in close communication with your surgeon regarding this new bleeding. I would also limit your activity on the left side and continue wearing compression until you get in to see your surgeon.
Are you sure is an haematoma?
Rest and compression are crucial

Post-Op Risk of Hematoma
There are many surgical risks occurring with the completion of gynecomastia surgery including the following:
Blood clots • Hematoma • Breast contour irregularities • Anesthesia risks • Infection • Breast asymmetry • Breast shape irregularities • Scarring • Fluid accumulation • Persistent pain • Temporary or permanent changes in breast or nipple sensationIt is unfortunate that this may have taken so long to appear after your procedure, but it is a good idea to take problems like this with post-op healing directly to your surgeon to have the area examined for any corrections or treatment possibly needed. All the best to you.
