Is this capsular contracture?
It is difficult to tell what is going on based on those pictures. I don't think that it is capsular contracture based on the limited information. A dimple under the nipple is usually a result of scar tissue forming within the incision, but not necessarily a capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is where the entire implant becomes firm and displaced from scarring around the implant itself. This determination is best made by seeing your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an in person examination.
