Left and Right Areolas

Dear Madam, is  this the pics taken after revision? If I'm correct and  this is your last view after your second operation something is going wrong with your left breast areola. I think you have to wait until this black crust will remove. You lost this part of your areola. To reconstruct this part you have to visit a Plastic Surgeon and he or she will instruct you to do routine dressing changes on daily basis. After 3-4 weeks all the crust will remove and pinkish-redish colored tissue will develop in this wound. Then you will wait with dressing changes until all this area covered with your skin. This can take upto 2-3 months. Only after waiting like 6 months post operatively you can go back to your surgeon and he/she can plan a further surgery to correct it.
