Did I tear the capsule around my implant?

Possible capsule tear after breast augmentation
Thank you for your question. It is common to have small tears in the capsule even up to 1 to 2 years after surgery. This usually occurs with strenuous exercise. Yoga is a very strenuous exercise. The tear may have temporarily caused the bulge and then healed on its own. That is why the bulge is now gone. Make sure you keep seeing your primary surgeon and have the area evaluated thoroughly and frequently. Best wishes in your recovery!
