Discuss these issues with your plastic surgeon. They will be able to discuss your treatment options.
Burning sensation with capsular contracture
Burning sensations and Capsular contracture
The capsular contracture is not dangerous and can be fixed by your plastic surgeon, make sure to bring this up to him when you have your post operation follow up.
I am not sure how far along you are in the healing process because you did not specify, but if you are still early in the post operative phase then the burning sensations are only a symptom from the muscles being stretched out inside the breast pocket. Burning sensations are common for a few weeks post-op but should stop soon.
IF it has been several months since you had your breast augmentation then I very strongly recommend seeing your plastic surgeon to address both of these problems as soon as possible and assess your healing progress.
