Let it Heal, Time will help
I agree with removing the piercing. The nipple ring is a foreign body which can increase bacteria and risk for infection in the areola. The scars may heal just fine with time. In very pigmented or black skin color, the scars and skin may be more prone to noticeable scars. Time will help. I would recommend upwards of a year before considering surgical revision. Consider silicone patching or steroids if a keloid type scar forms (which is unlikely).
Asymmetric nipple piercing following mastopexy
The simplest option would be to remove the piercing, let it heal in, and then pierce again. I think repeating the mastopexy would be the more complicated option.

The areola when sewn along the border during a circumareola lift can sometimes be twisted a bit. While this may be a bit related to swelling it might nor be. Best of luck.
Hello, it looks like you are in very early days of wound healing so it is possibly the nipple appearance will change over several months. This can be filled along with your surgeon.
