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

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.

I agree you need to see her plastic surgeon for proper diagnosis.  Next

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