Possible post op complication after capsulectomy surgery

It is too early to tell if you have a recurrent capsular contracture.  Two weeks would be extremely early .  It is possible that your firmness is related to a hematoma.  If there has been a change see your plastic surgeon.

Causes of hard breast following revision surgery

Thank you for your question. it is still too early to judge the outcome of your revision. But, in general, following breast revision for capsular contractors, the breasts feel very soft and patients usually feel much better. There may be other causes of early hardening of the breast such a blood clot in the left breast.You may want to communicate your concerns with your plastic surgeon and get has advice. Good luck
