You have some form of scar contracture, of which capsular contracture is possibly a part of. Your periareolar incision put you at higher risk for this phenomenon; dissection of the breast tissue creates injury that scars internally, causing possible deformities like scar tethering, something you may have. This is an under reported problem with the periareolar incision. Most surgeons are just now acknowledging the increased risk of capsular contracture with periareolar incisions though.
You will need to be examined to determine what would be appropriate for you. If you do opt for a revision surgery, I highly recommend you don't reuse your periareolar incision, but instead go through the inframammary crease.
Best of luck!
