I have had my right breast look different and drop slower since I had them done I will post a few photos of the process from I got them done 1 year and a half ago till now. I have 425cc smooth round HP silicone unders My right appears smaller, and placed differently and sometimes in photos it looks non existent. In person you can slightly tell they are off but in photos I find its very obvious So does my right breast with the mole on it have cc?
Do I have cc? (photo)

Do I have a capsular contracture?
You need to be examined in person to determine the cause. Pre-op photos would also help as I suspect this asymmetry is pre-existing. Be sure to see a BC PS in your area.
Diagnosis of capsular contracture
You may have a capsular contracture or your right implants may be just a little bit high or your right breast may look the way it does because of a pre-existing asymmetry. A diagnosis would require an in person exam and a look at your preoperative photos.
In any case, you should take your concerns to your operating surgeon. He/she should be able to determine which of these issues is present in your case and offer a treatment plan if treatment is necessary.

Do you have capsular contracture?
Its impossible to tell you if you have capsular contracture from just your photos. If your breasts are soft, then it is unlikely you have capsular contracture. I would followup with you plastic surgeon to address your concerns. Best wishes,
Over time, the scar tissue will begin to shrink. The shrinkage is known as capsular contraction. The rate and extent at which the shrinkage occurs varies from person to person. In some people, the capsule can tighten and squeeze the implant, making the breast feel hard. You may also experience pain and discomfort.
Capsular contracture is an unavoidable complication of breast implant surgery. Everyone who has breast implants will experience capsular contracture to some degree.
Unless it was obvious, it is hard to diagnose a cc by a picture. If your right breast is soft, you don't have a significant capsular contracture. Your right breast implant may be slightly higher than your left breast and it may not be a result of a cc.
