Does this look like capsular contracture? (photos)
Doctor Answers 5
Thank you for your question & photo. It is difficult to say if the contour irregularity is due to capsular contracture, implant malposition or something else. Pre op photos would be useful for comparison. CC must be assessed and determined in person with an exam. I recommend that you contact your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best
It is little hard to tell form the photo but it would be wise to see your surgeon
Sometime even a bruise can leave some discolouration of the skin for 4-6months

I recommend you to see your plastic surgeon and hace a personal evaluation cause its difficult to determinate without a physical examination.
It is hard to tell exactly from your image whether this is capsular contracture or not. You should always contact your plastic surgeon if you have concerns about post-operative infection, bleeding, swelling, fever, excessive bruising, or any new and sudden changes in the feeling or look of your implants, breasts or incisions.
Healing will go on for 2-3 months for the early period. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will be changing. Revision of #breast implant and lift #cosmeticsurgery may be needed for: asymmetry, continued ptosis, implant malposition as well as all of the other reasons needed for breast implant revision surgery.
