Nipple areolar concern
Great question! I would suggest that you wait until the implants have had time to heal and settle in and determine if this is still bothersome to you. There is a procedure called a peri-areolar (donut) mastopexy that will help flatten the areola and "round out" the breast, however you have to be willing to trade for the scar. Talk to your surgeon about your concerns and you can weigh your options when the time comes. Best Wishes!

Post-Op Healing with Breast Shape
The patient will go home in a bra or with only light dressings over the incision lines. Sutures are dissolvable but an ending knot, if present is removed within 1-2 weeks. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Light activities may be started in 7-10 days. Healing will go on for 2-3 months for the early period. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will be changing. If my patients have concerns that something is unusual about their healing process, it is important for them to call the office and discuss these concerns or come in to be examined. Now, if you continue to have any questions or concerns about the healing process it would be a good idea to visit your surgeon soon in order to have the area evaluated for proper healing. Since it has only been about three weeks you should still have time for healing to continue, but you should also not hesitate to contact your surgeon. Best of luck!
