What could this mass be that I found under one breast?

I had a breast lift and implants three months ago. I recently felt a mass in under one breast that hurts when it's squeezed or pressure is applied.

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. I have to say that it's too soon to determine a damage with your past surgery, get in touch with your surgeon personally. 
The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but  also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast…
