Title: Do I have Nipple necrosis?
Post by: remyismydog on July 14, 2017, 08:35:16 PM
I had unilateral gyno surgery about 5 weeks ago (gland removal and very little Lopo). 1 week after my surgery I had my post op appointment with my surgeon and everything looked great. 2 weeks post op my nipple looked like it was beginning to scar. I called my surgeon to see if scarring of the nipple was normal and he said it will be fine and give it time to heal. It has now been about 5 weeks post op and it does not appear to have healed at all. So now I am nervous and hoping I do not have necrosis. Please look at the attached pictures and give me your thoughts/suggestions

Thanks

Your surgeon is the best person to talk to. You should go and talk to him in person. If you have any doubt, you can have a consultation with another surgeon.
I did find this post (https://www.gynecomastia.org/smf/index.php?topic=13959.0) and this post (https://www.realself.com/question/dark-nipple-after-gynecomastia-areola-reduction-surgery) which seems similar to yours. However, as you said that you are 5 weeks post op and these post are only few days post op, so I don't know if this will help.
