5 weeks post op, when I flex my right implant moves and feels weird, could I have capsular contracture?
Only IN PERSON second opinions would allow an response.. There are many many boarded PSs in MIAMI to see...
Breast capsule after recent surgery?
Thanks for the question. It is early to assume a capsular contracture at this early time after the breast augmentation surgery. The action of the sub pectoral contracture movement on a breast implant can be very active after a sub pectoral augmentation, and fortunately on occasion this will diminish with time as the implants settle down and lower somewhat after a breast augmentation. I would not be too alarmed about this until months have transpired. I would wait longer to make a judgement about this. In the meantime, stay close to your Plastic Surgeon and be sure that you both agree about the signs of improvement as you move forward.
Good luck to you.

5 weeks post surgery
At five weeks post breast augmentation it is extremely unlikely that you had a capsular contracture. It may take a few more months for things to settle and stretch.
Not a capsular contracture
At this time it' s too soon for have a capsular contracture, and you don't have a clinic sign for that
