Swelling and Bruising After Gynecomastia surgery depend on the original problem, techniques used, skill of the surgeon, after surgery care, and many other factors.  My patients have their After Gynecomastia Surgery Compression Garments applied at the time of surgery to minimize such swelling. Removing the garment too soon can cause all sorts of unnecessary swelling.

Hope this helps,
