Nipple bruising when incision was under the breast

Delayed bruises can occur but if not associated with any changes in the breast itself (size, pain, etc), it likely will be self limited and resolve with time. If you do appreciate any changes, you should let your surgeon know immediately for how to proceed from there.

Appears as a very good result in the posted photos. But best to be seen by your operative surgeon ASAP to determine the cause of the recent nipple/areolar bruising..
