Concerned about areola
Your breasts including areolas and incisions will continue to heal and change for next several months. If you are unhappy with shape and size of the areola in 3-6 months, you will need a revision. It is great that you are following up with your plastic surgeon. Communicate with your plastic surgeon about your concern.

Thanks for posting your question. I am happy to try and help you. Sorry to learn about your concerns.
The best advice that I can give you is that you should speak to your plastic surgeon. Online consultants are not the appropriate source of information for you; your plastic surgeon should be your resource when it comes to postoperative concerns.
This is important because every surgeon has different perspectives, the only one that should be important is the one that operated on you ;)

Thank you for your question. You may need a scar revision and will likely have to wait a few months longer to completely heal first. Follow up with your Plastic Surgeon and communicate about your options.
All the best
