Implant Has Shifted Following Start of Crossfit/Heavy Lifting
If the breast is not a bit firmer than the right, I'm not sure there is a capsular contracture. If the gummy bear implant is an anatomical implant there is a good chance that the implant has rotated 180 degrees. This would cause the upper pole to be full and the lower pole of the breast at the bra line to appear to be higher. Although most of the gummy bears are textured, in order the keep the implant from rotating, only about 50% will actually have tissue ingrowth. If the implant is under the muscle, then the cross fit with the contraction of the pecs can place pressure on the implant to cause it to spin. Its best to check with your plastic surgeon to sort out the issue.

You may be developing a capsular contracture which can result in volume loss in the pocket with upper pole fullness and apparent elevation of the inframammary fold. This is not necessarily related to exercise. You should contact your plastic surgeon for an examination and considerations for treatment.
Change shape after breast augmentation
Hi jry2016without looking at pictures is not possible to know exactly what is happening but it sounds to me you are developing a capsular contracture.Capsular contracture is what some patient call "rejection" of the implant but this is not correct.Capsular contracture is a thickening of the scar tissue around the implant (capsule) that can literally squeeze the implant. This can happen even after few years like in your case,would explain the impression that you had of a smaller size , would explain the fullness on top and the pain.You should see your surgeon and could consider a capsulectomy wich is the surgical removal of the scar tissue around the implant.

Implant Position Concern
If you note a new change in shape/position of the breast it is best that you have it assessed in person by your Plastic Surgeon. You may be dealing with implant malposition or early capsular contracture which must be determined with a physical exam.
All the best
Probably emergence of capsular contracture.
