Thank you for your question. I would recommend that you make an appointment with your plastic surgeon immediately for a thorough examination. Questions regarding problems after surgery are best answered by the operating surgeon and in person.
Thank you for your picture. In my opinion, the left breast nipple and areola look like there is some decreased circulation. The decreased circulation could lead to partial or total nipple loss. This needs to be addressed by your plastic surgeon ASAP. Best wishes.
