Do I have a muscle flexation deformity and what causes this?
It looks like the dimensions of your smaller breast were to restrictive for the size of implant you have .
This is most likely due to the distance from your nipple to the fold being too short on that side .
There are ways to overcome this but it is a complex situation and you would need a consultation to help you choose the best path .
You will need to have your Plastic Surgeon assess you in person to determine if this might relax/smooth out over time or if minor revision is required.
All the best

It is not uncommon to be able to feel your implant but what may be happening is what is known as "double bubble." This can happen because the implant is higher up by the first "bubble" but the breast tissue is sagging and shows up as the second or lower "bubble." This can also be due to the natural inframammary crease being the first bubble and the new inframammary crease being the lower bubble. Often times, this is apparent soon after surgery because the breast "remembers" the old inframammary crease and this can resolve with time. Sometimes if the tissue is not released enough the memory of the tissue can remain and lead to this problem. It is important to maintain follow up with your board certified plastic surgeon and have an examination for accurate diagnosis and treatment. Best of luck, MMT
