Hard to tell if just wound edge issues or necrosis. What does your surgeon say??? Always best to check with the operative surgeon first...

Does this look like necrosis?

Looks like a poor blood supply to the areola, maybe you will develop a epidermolisis and that is not a big issue, talk to your doctor about creams that improve blood supply.

However based on your photographs the changes that you see appear to be superficial a condition called epidermolysis and I doubt full-thickness necrosis.
