I have blood fluid between my breast implant. Can it become capsule contracture if it's not drained? (Photos)

Blood causing contracture
You have several different issues going on. There is the question of the breast pain You should be evaluated by your plastic surgeon or whoever is on call covering for him The issue of the fluid is not a significant one. 5 to 10 ML of blood should dissolve overtime and not cause problems. Blood definitely can cause capsular contraction but this amount should not cause a problem
Fluid around breast implant
Thank you for your question. If it is hurting you should be evaluated by a PS. If your PS is out of town who ever covering him may help. Please talk to your PS office for evaluation.

ONLY 10 mls? This is NOT a significant bleed... But if repeat US shows more fluid than surgical drainage s indicated. ASAP. I am sure your surgeon has a cross covering surgeon whom can operate upon you.. Call his office to see who is covering him. Or seek another boarded PS in Miami and pay for the drainage operation than have the original surgeon work out the fees to you...
