Looks like scar tissue to me. Aren't you wearing a compression vest ? Maybe you should try massages...

Did you have gland removed? Because if so the skin will still need to bind to your chest. Scar tissue will make it look worse and this is what you are experiencing. If you had gland removed just wait it out, it all takes time.

Yes I did. Also should I be massaging it, or does it not matter

Is your vest tight enough ?  My PS told me to massage the area 3 times a day for 5 minutes using Arnica Montana cream. This cream's real effects are controversial but not the massages. Just google"massage scar tissue surgery"...

Feels pretty tight?  Just wondering, this isnt going to be permanent is it?

If it's scar tissue, it should disappear at some point.
