The areola needs to have healed and faded and currently it looks red and inflammed. I would probably wait 6-12 months before considering this.
Breast scar Revision
I appreciate your question.
Wait at least 12 months before revision the scar
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

It takes perhaps nine to twelve months for the scars to mature.
This scarred area can be tattooed, or it can be cut out and revised.

Tattooing of the area should wait until the scars softened. This may take six months to a year after the surgical procedure.
Medical Tattooing Post Breast Lift Scars
Thanks so much for your question and I am so glad to hear how fantastic you feel. Scars do mature over time which leads to improved appearance. It is not recommended that you do anything with the scars for at least 1 year but I advise you to check with your surgeon for his recommendations as he/she will see you for regular post op visits. All the best!
