Had Both Implants Replaced After Having Capsular Contracture on One Only is It Normal for It to Be More Swollen Than the Other?

Swelling after surgery

Presumably the surgery on the contracted side was more complex, and it would not be surprising that one side has more swelling than the other. This question would be best answered by your surgeon,who can decide whether an office visit is best to evaluate your course.

Best wishes.
