Post-Surgery - My nipples vary largely now in colour and look rather odd.

I had surgery over a year ago to correct breast asymmetry but my nipples vary largely now in colour and look rather odd and kind of ... Sickly - (there not but it just looks that way) is there any way or means to help fix the problem ? Would an areola reduction help hide the discolouration ?

Dear daisycherub, 
It is hard to determine what the issue is without a photo. The change in appearance could be related to the the incision, if that was down around the areola. I would return to your operating surgeon and voice your concerns. Good luck!
