5 months ago i passed an gyno operation, both sides. Just after the op. i have a flat chest and very happy with the results. However, i noticed that my nipples getting puffier and a tenderness at the nipples. I can see also a lump beside my right nipple? To the doctors in the forum, can you please take a look to my images and leaving your obervations?

Note: i havent use drugs or any supplements in the past

Thanks a lot !

It might be a little bit of scar tissue. Sometimes massage and even a kenalog injection can help. You should return to your surgeon though for examination and the best advise.

From your description, it sounds like some scar tissue has developed under the areola, and in that circumstance, I'll use a Kenalog injection into the scar tissue to reduce it.  This can be very effective.  You should speak to your surgeon about this. 
Good luck.
