Healing of Tissue Depends on Many Factors
Evolution of shape and recovery after surgery depends on:

With Dr. Bermant's chest sculpture, the big changes after surgery happen in the operating room. Tissue continues to evolve during the healing stages.
Photograph to left is 6 months after gynecomastia surgery.
This next patient had one sided gynecomastia - one side was affected, the other was normal. With only one side operated, the photographs can show tissue healing and evolution compared to an unoperated side.
Unilateral Gynecomastia Male Chest - Only the patient's right breast needed surgery. Although 9 days after an operation is very early into the healing process, note how nicely the skin has shrunk and the shape has evolved.

When enough tissue is not removed, secondary surgery can often sculpt remaining tissue. This next patient had surgery by another doctor, too much tissue remained after that doctor's operation.

Healing also depends on the extent of the surgery. Male Mastopexy or Internal Breast Lift is a more extensive operation through a small surface incision.

You can see many pictures before, during, shortly after, and long term after surgery on the pages of this gynecomastia site. Each patient is different. The typical evolution of tissue for Dr. Bermant's dynamic technique can be found on the many examples posted on these pages.
The big change happens in the operating room, patients wake up with their new chest. The tumescent technique uses anesthetic fluid to numb the tissues. This fluid is absorbed and you urinate it out over the next several hours and days. Sculptured tissue is injured and swollen. This swelling tends to decrease over the next few weeks as it heals. However, any time liposuction is part of sculpture, it can take more than 6 months to see the final results.
The sculpted zone under the skin can stay firm for quite some time as it heals and softens. The firmness is more of feel and consistency of tissue than something that shows through the skin. This healing / evolution can take months. However, for Dr. Bermant's techniques, the big changes occurs at the time of the operation.
The initial swelling of surgery can hide remaining tissue and redundant skin. As that first swelling goes down, the quality of the sculpture shows.
