Concern of Breast Implant Displacement
It may be best to speak to your plastic surgeon about your concern. One of the most common problems is breast #capsular #contracture or the development of thickening, and contracture of the capsule that exists around the breast implants. Severe capsule contracture probably occurs in less than 15% of augmentation patients.
Every woman has a breast capsule around their implant and this is a normal phenomenon. Nicotine users, such as smokers, have up to a 30x increased risk of capsular contracture. As it thickens and shrinks, the patient may develop a feeling a firmness of the breasts and in its worst situation, the breast may become painful and abnormal in appearance, achieving a very round, hard, and uneven appearance. There may be distortion and possible breakage and leakage of an older implant, but may also include a newer #implant.
I suggest beginning with an in-person #evaluation with your original surgeon, or, with a board certified plastic surgeon. It is best select a plastic surgeon who is #board-certified and has a great deal of experience with breast #augmentation and the incision type, #implant placement, and implant type. Plastic surgeons who have specialized in breast surgery and cosmetic surgery are suitable to perform your breast augmentation.

Please follow up with your Operating MD so he/she can examine you to rule out capsular contracture and send you for imaging if needed.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
