How much did the doctor drain?

And 16 days is probably not enough time, but i guess that depends on how much drained and how your body reacts.

Im 3 weeks post op and i am still swollen like hell.

tittyman: You're 16 days post op? Did you have any follow-up's with your ps? What did he say about the puffy nips? I know, dumb question, he probably said it's swelling and will go away.

My swelling was very minor because of the drains. My wife was constantly dumping the blood from my drains.

If you didn't have drains, the swelling may be a bit longer.  I understand you're trying to get the opinion of the guys on this board, but I'd ask your dr. too.

I'm about 12 days PO and I still have a good bit of swelling on the right side...the left side looks fine though.  i had drains and almost nothing came out the left, but the right was pretty steady (they are both out now though) and I'm just waiting for the swelling to go down.  

it seems like everyone experiences the swelling and that we all need to give it time and keep talking to the PS to figure out the best plan if indeed a revision is necessary

I'm 12 days out of surgery. Dr. took out 2.5 lbs of fat and I'm still pretty swollen on on side(no drains). I can't believe I finally had the surgery . If they go down a liitle I'll be able to pass a as a chubby guy insted of a guy with moobs. Any idea when I'll be able to really tell the results.
