Why did the Nipple/Areola Change Color After Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery often causes the areola to shrink in size. The gynecomastia breast gland causes the areola to be stretched. When the breast gland is removed or reduced the areola shrinks and becomes smaller in diameter. This shrinkage causes the melanocytes (the pigment of the areola, which creates the darker color) to become more concentrated and this causes a more concentrated color or darker.
