Why does one nipple look different then the other? (Photo)

I recently had breast reduction surgery on september 15. I took my steri strip off today and realized that my nipples look completely differnt from eachother. Will this work itself out? im a little worried :( also will they maybe get a little smaller? i feel like they still look bigger than what i want. Thankyou

you need to wait at least 6 months to see your final results and sometimes longer, however, with time your nipple/areolas should get smaller and more symmetric.

Breast redution

Everything looks good at the moment from the pics you have posted. I would not be concerned at present. It will take some time to settle. There will always be some differences but the areola size changes a lot over the coming weeks. Keep in touch with your PS.
