Lumpy breasts after explantation and lift
I would recommend you see your plastic surgeon or primary care provider to evaluate. It is possible to have scar tissue that is lumpy - particularly if it is multiple areas on both sides - but first and foremost you need to be sure it is not something more ominous such as breast cancer.

Lumps can be from many things: remnant of capsule, scar tissue, or breast mass. You should see your plastic surgeon so that he/she can examine you. Your plastic surgeon may even recommend radiologic studies if she/he thinks it warrants further work-up.
