Why are my areola's healing differently after 10 days?
It has been about 10 days since my gynecomastia surgery. Everything went well, and my initial post op meeting with my doctor was positive. The problem that I am seeing now is that my areola’s are healing at different rates. Is that weird? Why would they heal differently if they were fixed at the exact same time?
Hi. Actually, it is very normal for the 2 sides to heal at slightly different rates. This is true for any part of the body. Things usually normalize after several weeks, so you should be in good shape. If you still have concerns after the next few weeks, then ask you PS to take a look to confirm that everything is ok. Best of luck!

It is the rule rather than the exception that when you have surgery on both sides, they never heal at the same rate. 10 days is VERY early postop from gynecomastia recovery. I would not even look at your results from a cosmetic perspective until 6 weeks postop. Make sure you follow your surgeon's instructions.
