At six months after revision it is unlikely that you formed a hematoma. Are you sure it is not fat necrosis. However, it is best to have this checked out by yoru surgeon to be sure.
Probably scar tissue
Thanks for your question. Without seeing you or a picture it is hard to comment. It sounds like it might just be some scar tissue. Normally this goes away on its own. Sometimes massage of the area will help. This would best be directed by your surgeon.
