Thank you for your question.  Your result looks very nice on the breast in the photo.

I do not understand what is causing the pigmentation peripheral to the areola. This could be post inflammatory pigmentation if present since after your surgery.

I would suggest you see your surgeon for an exam and he may want a Dermatology consult.
