Obviously ,first stop is back to your surgeon for an exam and consultation.Capsular contractures this early are pretty rare but can happen.If there were bleeding or a hematoma,your surgeon might be able to tell with a brief exam or a simple ultrasound could tell.

You recently had your surgery. Things take time to heal and one side may heal faster than the other and some aches and pains are normal. However, if you are having serious concerns you should contact your plastic surgeon's office for advice as soon as possible.

Four weeks is quite early to have a capsule formed let alone be contracted.
Proper reassurance will come from a call into your surgeon who knows you, knows what was done, and is following your recovery. All the best.
