Hello, I was wondering if anyone who has had gynecomastia surgery ever had the complication of a very dark bruised nipple. My husband had the surgery 4 days ago and we noticed that the right nipple looks very dark and bluish black, the left nipple is absolutely fine, no colour change to it. Is it possible that the blood supply was cut off to the nipple from the surgery? We are scheduled to go see the doctor on Wednesday, but we are concerned. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
How much Bruising and Swelling after gynecomastia Surgery
depends on the problem to be treated, what was done and many other factors. Impaired blood supply can result in darker tissues as can a collection of blood like a Hematoma Complication After Gynecomastia Surgery
, or just more bruising seen with certain techniques or other complications.
If one of my patient had such questions or concerns I would want them to call me immediately
, not wait for a follow up appointment. Have you checked with your doctor for advice?
Hope this helps,
