Firm breast after augmentation
Thank you for your question. What you are describing sounds like capsular contracture. Your body formed a membrane of scar tissue around you implants after surgery, which is a normal physiologic response to the implant. On your left side, this capsule may be thicker and tighter around your implant and this is likely causing your symptoms. I would encourage you to see your plastic surgeon and discuss treatment options. Best of luck.
