Hello and thank you for your question.
Yes, the swelling and the bruising combined could be the reason you see a different color on your areola. It is very normal for your breast to be asymmetrical at this point in the healing process. This is because of many factors but in your case it seems to be because the right breast is still more swollen from the surgery. This will happen because of the way the body works - both breasts will heal at their own rate based on factors such as the amount of trauma to the tissue during surgery or the tightness of the chest muscles before operation.
Remember the healing process is going to take some time - up to 4-6 months - for you to see your final results without any of the swelling, and having them "drop and fluff" which actually looks like will happen for you soon.
Do not be worried - for one week post operation - you are healing exceptionally. Stay in contact with your surgeon and make sure to follow up in person for the best recovery experience possible. You will have all questions answered to ease your mind and a doctor to tend to your incisions and know if they are healing properly.
