...when the hard scar tissue behind and around the incision site starts to diminish... will your skin naturally retract? what happens?

It goes away and your puffy nips are gone for good :)
I hope so anyway.  Waiting patiently for my scar tissue to vanish...only then will I have my final results.

Just over 4 months.  Scar tissue seems to be in full glory at the moment.  For me, it didn't appear until the beginning of month 3 post op.  So I think mine is going to be around for a while yet.  If it is still there in December i will go back to the doctor and ask something to be done about it.  In the mean time, read this old thread, it has some interesting info on the topic of scar tissue and healing.  Apparently it takes 1 to 2 years for the body to actually heal a wound completely!!

A little off topic - but can an overdose of Steriod (Keliod) injection cause craters??? In general does taking Keliod injections to reduce/eradicate scars have any affect on contouring of the chest?
