Follow up needed urgently
You need to be having at least 18th to 2 yearly checks with your surgeon after breast augmentation and in between anytime there is a change you also need to see your surgeon. You symptoms and a change in shape are suggestive of a possible implant rupture and a check by your doctor and an ultrasound/MRI to exclude rupture are warranted
In person exam required

Thank you for your question and photos. Sudden changes and pain should be investigated in person. You could have issues with the implant pocket but also changes to your natural breast tissue such as cysts. Imaging for the breasts such as Ultrasound may be ordered.
All the best

The issues you describe warrant a visit to your plastic surgeon for an exam. He/She may suggest you get additional tests such as a mammogram or ultrasound if the exam isn't sufficient to diagnose the problem. If you have had a recent mammogram, bring the report along for the surgeon to review.
