Concerned about Lumps 5 Months After Gynecomastia Surgery
It's still quite early into your healing stage. Your incisions will go through a maturation #process. The areas may feel “lumpy” and irregular and should decreases with time. Often, massaging these areas will help soften the scar tissue. Also, 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.
Each patient is unique and previous #results are not a guarantee for individual outcomes. As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic.

It is not uncommon to have some breast gland asymmetry with excess tissue 5 months after gynecomastia surgery. Generally, I’d wait 12 months until all soft tissue swelling and edema has resolved and then any asymmetry or fullness you have will require consultation for enhancement or revision surgery. Revision surgery either indirect through advanced liposuction such as BodyTite can generally improve the overall symmetry of the breast gland size and shape. Repeat excisional surgery may be required although can often be avoided.
I hope this information is of some assistance and best of luck.
