Capsular contracture can occur that fast, and cause pain. The treatment is capsulotomy and replace the implats. If they are only 9 month you may use the same implants and that will make it cheaper for you. However you must understand that the company and the FDA states breast implants are single use only. Have a Consultation with a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON, he/she will give you a complimentary consultation and give you the diagnosis treatment and cost. Even if you go through surgry you can develope another capsular contracture. The incidence is 5-15%. Then you will need another surgry. The only way to prevent capsular contracture is not to have Breast implants.

Sorry for the pain you are going through, some doctors do offer a free conceltation, they will let you know how much it will cost you, or you can go back to your PS maybe he will help you out. Good luck
