My PS stated everything went well with my surgery (I am Post op day 1) except that my rt areola/nipple had a difficult time getting good blood flow back. He did eventually get it to re-perfuse and wanted to see me back today to make sure all was well. My left areola/nipple looks healthy and pink, but my right areola/nipple is purple and limp.  My PS stated that he "thinks" the blood flow will improve and the color will pink.  Has anyone else had this experience and if so...did it improve???
