How long on average should I expect periareolar scars to blend?

Healing will go on for 2-3 months for the early period. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will be changing.
If my patients have concerns that something is unusual about their healing process, it is important for them to call the office and discuss these concerns or come in to be examined. There is a chance you will have some more time throughout the healing process for your scars to settle, but if you are concerned it would be best to visit your surgeon to have the area examined to make sure healing is progressing well. Good luck.
