Had surgery 1 week ago today, lipo and gland removal via incisions at the armpits so nipples were left untouched from the outside

Noticed one of my nipples is starting to look a bit bloody? Can't get hold of my surgeon and I'm panicking a bit, has anyone seen anything similar?

Attached a photo of the non bloody one for comparison, thanks in advance

I had same procedure, through armpits. My nipples scabbed over around first week and it cleared about week 2 i think. I kept putting sudocream on my nipples and armpit incisions from day 2 so I didn't have any bleeding.

There is nothing to worry about.  Obviously, there is some minor bleeding during surgery, And the blood can sometimes find its way into the milk ducts (remember, the breast is a milk gland, even in a male)) and then find its way to the nipple itself.

All should be fine.  Don't worry.
