The best way to determine what is causing a problem for you, would be to have an exam by a surgeon.  Without that, it is impossible to know.

Problems with Breast Implants?

Thank you for the question.

Only in person examination by a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon will  be able to allow for a precise diagnosis (imaging such as MRI  may also be necessary) an treatment plan. I will suggest that you arrange for this consultation in the near future.

Best wishes.
