Firmness of a breast 18 months after breast augmentation is capsular contracture not hematoma.
The risk of fluid versus capsular contracture based on your description very strongly favors the latter. You should report this to your plastic surgeon.
Hello dear, thanks for your question. Its a bit difficult to tell you exactly what you have because there's no photos, but you may have a capsular contracture, get a consultation with your doctor!
You might have a capsular contracture, seroma, hematoma, etc. It is impossible to tell without an examination. I suggest you get in touch with your plastic surgeon. If that is not possible then you should make an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can examine you in person and review your options with you.
Capsular contracture usually happens gradually. In a breast becomes high hard and hurts after previously being soft and incorrect position is sometimes associated with fluid or blood. See your plastic surgeon for examination. Good luck.
If it came up suddenly then likely a hematoma but if this happened over several weeks or months probably encapsulation.
It seems a capsular contracture problem. You should go with your plastic surgeron to fix it as soon as posible.
You may have a capsular contracture. You would have to be seen in person to determine if this is the case, and then you will likely need revision if so.
Thank you for your question and at this point in time it is probably capsular contracture so see your surgeon
Hematoma vs CC
Thank you for your question. It is more likely capsular contracture and unlikely hematoma at this point. In person examination required to determine the cause.
Unlikely to be a hematoma
If your breast has become suddenly firm it is not likely to be a seroma. More likely to be a capsular contracture. You should be evaluated by your plastic surgeon,
