It is hard to determine what your problem is without a proper evaluation. You possibly can have a capsular contracture.

Bubbly Sensation after Breast Augmentation and Lift

  I must say it is a bit difficult to suggest a diagnosis from your description.  If you did have a capsular contracture before, recurrence is a possibility.  Without an exam, I cannot make any further recommendations other than you need to be examined.  If you do not want to see your surgeon, then seek out another surgeon.  However, if you had capsular contracture and the problem was improved by capsulectomy or similarly effective procedure, the doctor may have done exactly the right thing.

Concerns after Breast Augmentation/Lifting Surgery?

I  I'm sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction after breast surgery. Frankly, I do not know what may be causing the “strange bubbly sensations” that you are experiencing. For accurate advice, I would suggest that you follow-up with your plastic surgeon and/or seek additional in-person consultation with board certified plastic surgeons in your area.

Best wishes.
