I'm 7 months post op and still have one puffy side from what I'm assuming is scar tissue. Once I'm at one year I'm going to ask about cortisone injections if it hasn't subsided.

Great question.  Answer is it varies with the elasticity of the patient's skin.  Given a young, healthy guy who has never been overweight, the skin will tighten and the areola will shrink literally in front of my eyes on the operating table.  If you take an older guy, or one who has been heavier and whose elasticity is diminished, the skin will tighten more slowly -- days to weeks or longer.
