A capsule will have formed around both of your implants by 10 weeks. These are sometimes called scars, and do bear some resemblance to other types of internal scars.
With current photos I am not getting a clear idea of what may be occurring with your implants. I see photos from a month or so ago that appear rather unremarkable, and a normal postop appearance.
Discussion with your surgeon will be the best recommendation

Pec muscles tight after breast augmentation #breastimplants
Yes it is very normal. It can take 3-6 months for the skin and muscle to stretch and become softer. You just want to make sure you stay in close touch with your surgeon so they can examine you often. What you describe I hear from my patients all the time early on.
