I have to say that you are still early on healing process, it is too soon to determine how your results are going to be, per now, they look very nice and beautiful, you can have one bigger than the other, it is normal and that can happen for the first 3 months until your implants have settle in. I recommend you to wait and keep using your post surgical bra, that will help you with the shape and support. Hugs!

This can happen in Breast lift or Reductions, it has to do with the size of your nipple prior to the procedure. If your nipple was wide, it can sometimes have residual pigmentation left over after the lift/reduction is done. There is nothing wrong with how things are healing, this actually is pretty common with larger breasts/areolas. At this point in time, you just need to let everything heal. Once everything is healed, usually 3-4 months after the procedure you could do a couple things to remove the pigmentation. The first option is trying a laser to remove the pigmentation. The second option would be to do an excision (removal of the skin that is pigmented), which can be done in the office with local anesthesia.
The best thing to do is wait until you see your PS and they will let you know how to proceed.
