Wondering If This Is The Development Of A Capsular Contracture
It is very possible that this is
the development of a Capsular Contracture. “Could a bear hug have caused this?”—the
causes of a Capsular Contracture can be many, and this is a phenomenon in plastic surgery that is still not fully understood. If you had trauma in the initial
phases of healing that led to bleeding around the implant, this could have
caused it. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing for sure. I would recommend close follow up
with your surgeon to discuss appropriate treatment options. Best of luck!
Its normal to have subtle asymmetries as you do
but your surgeon should have some recommendations for you on how to lower the fuller side. I like to use massage and asymmetric bras to help in such situations but your surgeon should be most motivated to see that you achieve your desired goals.
Left breast asymmetry
You have left breast upper pole fullness and not necessarily capsular contracture; An examination would be necessary to determined what the source of your upper breast pole fulnness is; possibilities include:1)extra fat2)pocket dissected too high so it is being tethered3)breast implant malposition
8 weeks post op. Is this Capsular Contracture for the second time? Could a bear hug second week post op have caused it
Blood in the pocket is very inflammatory and that inflammation has a higher chance of causing a capsular contracture. The fact that you had a bruise tells me there was blood there. Sorry to hear about it
Irregular breast shape after revision
From your photographs, it seems like you do not have normal early healing. You need to seek advice from your plastic surgeon and make sure there is nothing to do immediately. Often, we just have to wait in these situations and see how things turn out. You may indeed need further surgery but this is difficult to assess at this point.
